about

Lost In Dreams is an album created based on the concept of being stuck in a dream state. Unable to discern reality from dreams. This concept was influenced by several of the members of Sleep Waker’s sleeping issues when they were younger.

Morgan Hoag for her contributions to this album, Lily
Mclaughlin for the promotional photos, and Eventide Design
Co. for the design work and branding on this album.

Also, a huge thanks to all our friends and bands in the West

Track Name: Bitter
Blank face, no backbone
Clear your throat before the light runs out
Step back, people walk out
The urge to live beats my urge to relapse
No headspace saved for me
Back in the room
I leave no space for the repetition
I’m fucking done with you
The way you crawl into my brain makes me fucking...

Get out, get out!

Headspace

Blank face staring at me
I’m not the one you want or the one you need
Back to basics
I’m the catalyst
My life’s a foot in my mouth
But I’m living it.
But I’m living it.
I’m not the man I used to be
Same face with a different name
I’m tired of turning to the substance that took everything

What am I doing
This isn’t me

In my mind I see a better picture with a better life
I wish hallucinogens in my brain wouldn’t make me feel alive.

Headspace
Track Name: Paranoia
Trapped, inside these four cornered walls
I try to sleep through the night, but hear their steps in the halls
Am I safer in here, or am I better off dead?
Convince me the eyes in the corner are just what's in my head

I hear,
"FEAR ME, I WON'T LET GO."
You can't convince me that my mind can be your only home
“YOU TRIED TO PUSH ME OUT YOU’RE ONLY
FIGHTING YOURSELF YOUR LIFE IS MINE, BUT YOU’RE
WISHING IT WAS SOMEONE ELSE'”

Taking the life I built and tearing it all down
We see our lives in the mirror
We don’t feel safe in ourselves
How we pick apart the details in the room
To distract the

“MIND GAMES
YOU PLAY”
Back against the wall
I need to wake from this dream

Fuck it, Kill me
My heads a mess I need to fucking escape

I need out of this place
“KEEP ME
ALIVE
INSIDE”

Breakout from the hell
We leave the room to save ourselves
Just relieve my mind
Safety in my hand
“DON’T LEAVE ME TO DIE HERE”

Just do it, just fucking do it.
Look me in the eyes and do it.

Someone show me what’s next.
Track Name: The Candlemaker
I’m stuck in this room all alone with my own thoughts
My mind caught in a web of my own rot
The room is dark, but my thoughts are darker
I’m searching for light at the end of this corridor.

Candlemaker
Shed some light, shed some light on my darkness.
Break the barrier
That holds back the thoughts I held so close

I’m seeing the ghost of the ones that I thought. were. dead.
The candle flickers and I finally see the darkness that’s inside my head

I’m praying to a god that never seems to hear me
The words I say are meaningless
I’m so alone and empty

I’m searching for a light
I’m searching for
Something to bring me back to life
I’m searching for a light
To bring purpose to my life

This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine x2
This little light of mine
I’m not doing fine
doing fine x3

I’m not doing fine
I’m struggling on where to draw the line
I swear my eyes are playing tricks on me
I can’t tell what’s fake and what’s reality

My god has left me
The people around me won’t fucking help me
I’m lost and confused
Bring me back to reality

I saw my grave,
I saw my grave by the candle’s flame
Track Name: Lost In Dreams
I hate the
changing of the season
Reminding me
My life is over and it’s never getting better
The end result is a man without purpose
I’ve been left alone, hopeless and I'm running out of room for this
Life
I’ve been living it, but at what cost
I keep losing it
Now I write on the wall
Why I'm worthless, pointless, and spineless
I see no point in carrying on with this

Take me
My life's a fucking mess
Even god wouldn't have me
So I’m turning to the rest
(You can’t save me)
I'm not a person with purpose, a man with no life
A hated drifter with no compass.
I'm heading Northern.
The point if the world where no one can find me,
No one to let down, no point in hiding
I see nothing
I'm not a dreamer, but I’m lost in this dream

The changing of the seasons
Remind me
This is how I bleed
I won't get on my knees
I’m lost in dreams
I won’t get lost in dreams
I won’t get lost

I’m lost
Find me

Lost in my dreams
Come find me
I’m stuck in a life between light and reality
Someone help me I’m losing myself
No time, no space
No time, safe place
No time

Erase

I need to find my place
We’re stuck in dreams
Upside Down
Track Name: Rainbringer
Sky's open up.

I see my life flash before my eyes.
Death, consumes my mind.

I now see clearly.
Rain has washed my eyes.
I'm beginning anew, lie down with me.

Create a new breed, towards a perfect humanity.
I see my life flash before me. Counting & counting
Synapses rebuilding a perfect body.
I take my own life.

Rainbringer
Rainbringer

Working towards perfection
I clear my mind
I now see my christ
I am coming
For my right
For my right

Break my bones.
My body extends past physical form
I am more than you know
I am rainbringer.
Track Name: Svn Cvlt
They look down on us
With jaded eyes
Rusted thrones with no legs to stand on

Land of lust
I look up to a clouded sky
The sun hidden behind their veil of lies
I see pollution in the air we breath
Blackened lungs are slowly killing me
I see their hand in everything

Expose the lies we believe
Take down their crooked teachings

Bleagh
So
Sleep
The sun away
Just
Forget
The cult that runs me
I'm
Free
To do anything they say

Sun cult
They run our show now
Sun cult
We need a blackout

Sedate me
What the fuck

Forget myself
I’m joining the cult
I don’t have a reason to hide from the sun
I walk into the light in front of me
The cult that runs me
(the cult that runs me)

Land of lust
I look up to a clouded sky
The sun hidden behind their veil of lies
I see the pollution in the air we breath
Blackened lungs are slowly killing me
I see their hand in everything
