about

I have always been a big dreamer at night. I remember dreams vividly. Sometimes they even play like a slideshow in my mind before I fall asleep. I have been noticing that I can lucid dream recently. I can wake up and then go back into a dream again and sometimes even control the narrative. It's such an odd thing but I love it.
I was part of a songwriting group with writing prompts. The prompt was "Running with Scissors". It made me think of all of the crazy, dangerous, amazing things that happen in my dreams while 'real life' feels pretty straight edged comparatively. This song evolved from that.

lyrics

LUCID DREAM
©Noëlle Hampton ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing

So you’re hiding out in the mundane
Pierce the skin and you hit the vein
Test your blood for a sign of life

Everyone you meet has a mirrored eye
Staring at the ground you can see the sky
Go ahead and run with the blade out

LUCID DREAM
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
LIKE A PRIMAL SCREAM
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE

Now you sleep to dream just to take control
Your blood pumping through the alcohol
You check your mind for a sign of life

You chase the high in your dream state
Everything is heavy and the bough breaks
Go ahead, do it anyway

LUCID DREAM
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
LIKE A PRIMAL SCREAM
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE

Half awake, retrace, blank slate
Paralyzed, hypnotized, rapid eyes
Let your mind go, if you say so
You can move it forward

LUCID DREAM
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
LIKE A PRIMAL SCREAM
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE
SAVE US FROM THE SANE LIFE (x2)
