Solo

Take a look in the pool and what do you see,
In the dark depths their faces beckoning me
Can't you see them it's plain for all to see,
They were there oh I know you don't believe me

Oh...I've never felt so strange,
But...I'm not going insane

I've no doubt that you think I'm off my head,
You don't say but it's in your eyes instead
Hours I spend out just gazing into that pool,
Something draws me there I don't know what to do

Oh...they drain my strength away,
Oh...they're asking me to stay
Nightmares...spirits calling me,
Nightmares...they won't leave me be

All my life's blood is slowly draining away,
And I feel that I'm weaker every day
Somehow I know I haven't long to go
Joining them at the bottom of the pool

Now...I feel they are so near,
I...begin to see them clear
Nightmares...coming all the time,
Nightmares...will give me peace of mind

Solo

Now it's clear and I know what I have to do,
I must take you down there to look at them too
Hand in hand then we'll jump right into that pool,
Can't you see not just me they want you too

Oh...we'll drown together,
It...will be forever
Nightmares...forever calling me,
Nightmares...now we rest in peace
