Lyrics

A nightmare to remember
I'll never be the same
what began as laughter
So soon would turn to pain

The sky was clear and pretty
The air was thick and still
Now I'm not one to soon forget
And I bet I never will

Picked up for a moment
The perfect irony
A flawless new beginning
Eclipsed by tragedy

The uninvited stranger
Started dancing on his own
So we said goodbye to the glowing bride
And we made our way back home

Life was so simple then
We were so innocent
Father and mother
Holding each other

Without warning out of nowhere
Like a bullet from the night
Crashing fast rubber and steel
Scorching fire glowing light

Screams of terror pain of fear
Sound of sirens smoke in my eyes
Silent stillness blackened silence
No more screaming no more cries

Starved and bewildered cold and afraid
Torn up and broken frightened and dazed
Starved and bewildered cold and afraid
Torn up and broken frightened and dazed

Lying on the table in this unfamiliar place
I'm greeted by a stranger, a man without a face
He said "Son, do you remember, so you even know your name?"
Then he shined a light into my eyes and said "Take this for the pain"

Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony
I am endlessly falling lost in this wonderful misery
In peaceful sedation I lay half-awake
And all of the panic inside starts to fade
Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony

"Tell me does this hurt you" said the faceless man
"Can you move all of your fingers, can you try your best to stand?"
I asked about the others "Is everyone okay?"
He told me not to worry, as he turned and looked away

Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony
I am endlessly falling lost in this wonderful misery
In peaceful sedation I lay half-awake
And all of the panic inside starts to fade
Hopelessly drifting bathing in beautiful agony

Day after day, and night after night
We play out the events did they ever see the red light?
Over and over, scene by scene like a reoccuring nightmare haunting my dreams.
How can you prepare for what would happened next?
No son should ever have to see his father such a mess
It's a miracle he lived it's a blessing no one died by the grace of god above everyone survived
HUUUUUUOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!

Life was so simple then
We were so innocent
It will stay with us forever
A nightmare to remember
