The Unknown
I was in a dream
Light surrounded me
Strange being upon my gaze
He told me
"You can hear us, You can save us"
I knew not what he spoke
This is strange, I feel numb
I feel light headed
I seem to be high
But this is not possible
The planet is dead
Nothing grows
He looked at me and said
"You can hear us, you must understand us"
From this tunnel I walk towards
And I awake, sweat dripping down my face

Yet again I wake from strange dreams
Why does this keep happening to me?
Possession possible drug inducement
The phenomenon can be brought about by the fumes
The chemicals in the metro or the fungus on the walls
I must use my gas mask simply to live now
It is not a choice breathe or suffocate
The surface is unbearable to see
Scorched to the teeth
Buildings once stood tall now nothing is there
Ashes that must have been bone
Concrete corners turned to dust
Glass melted upon bone from the bombs that dropped
Who ever knew this would be what came of these things
Now we live in holes like rats
Now we survive off what we find

No longer possible to grow the ground is dead
The planet is dead the air unbreathable
The sky scorched to a darkened gray
The sun is blotted out like a bad painting
But I must find salvation for my people
I must find salvation for my friends
For family & the illusion of Honor
I must press on
Across this baring waste land
Nothing but death is left
Into the endless light of Nuclear fire
I must travel through
May the unknown voices of the dreams guide me
I know there must be something
A planet this big can't have nothing
Or is it possible
As usual
Did man kill everything?
