I was deaf to my own lies… Song 267

I reach for the door in a frenzy. The storm is blinding and deafening. Lightning strikes all around me. My skin tingles. A feeling of dread fills me up. More lightning. More thunder. The tower sways. The tower shakes. Every hair on my body stands on end. A blinding flash. A deafening wind. I’m falling. I’m falling. I see the tower above me, crumbling. I hit the rocks below. I watch numbly as the tower burns and crumples before me. It is gone.

Song 267: “The Tower”

Lightning crashes on my head
I’m blinded by my own fate

A thunder clap rings through my skull
I was deaf to my own lies

It all comes crashing down in pieces
It’s nothing but rubble now

Falling down, I’m falling down
My world comes down to illusions

Falling down, I’m falling down
Falling down, I’m falling down
To my knees
