about

This song talks about sleep paralysis, a recurring disorder that Vivs sometimes faces in the dawn time. It was written around 2007, when Vivs and Marcelo did not know each other yet. When they listened to some old files, they thought they could take make this song work. Vivs rewrote some of the lyrics and they adjusted a few things in the melody to make it sound like it is today.

lyrics

As dawn arrives
And the light enters the room
Shadows draw me into a deep, deep sleep

For no reason at all
I feel that I could cry
At any time I could fall
Upside down from the sky

And so this way I’m looking down
And so this way I see you there
And anywhere I look around
Save me from the ground

​I am stuck inside this nightmare
My heart is pounding and my soul is bare
Have to fight this dream inside the dream
Chase the ghosts haunting in my sleep

​For no reason at all
I feel that I could fly
At any time I could fall
So high up to the sky

And so this way I’m looking down
And so this way I see you there
And anywhere I look around
Save me from the ground​

I am stuck inside this nightmare
My heart is pounding and my soul is bare
Have to fight this dream inside the dream
Chase the ghosts haunting in my sleep

Between the line
Of real and fantasy
Shadows crawl
Something’s pushing me down
Light, scream
I must resist
Wake up, wake up, wake up

Save me from the ground

I am stuck inside this nightmare
My heart is pounding and my soul is bare
Have to fight this dream inside the dream
Chase the ghosts haunting in my sleep
