Bringer of Dreams

He enters, evil, the bringer of dreams
And stalks to his place where candlelight streams.
The table's set for a feast of renown,
The servers pale in their shimmering gowns.

The lord of dreams is feasting
On the minds of men asleep.

Gathered round him ancient nightmare shadows
Cast reflections on minds in sleeping's throes.
Men twist beneath the baleful blades of fear
And call out night terrors that all may hear.

The lord of dreams is feasting
On the minds of men asleep.

His glistening blood-cup is raised on high
He quaffs it with a bold demonic sigh.
It drains and souls of men turn cold and dark
And dying spirits give up their last spark.

The lord of dreams is feasting
on the minds of men asleep.

The dawn is coming slow but yet apace
Dreamlord pulls his hood o'er his ghastly face.
The night-feast is ended - terror has flown
Men wake to the day - are no more alone.

I seem to have posted this twice in my journal. Hmmm.

I don't remember the group Magnum, but it is quite possible I've heard them. The language is quite similar. The phrase "sister of illusion" rings a bell with me and makes me think I've heard these lyrics before.

Thanks for this excellent connection!

The only place Google has heard of the phrase "sister of illusion" is in the Magnum lyric, so if you have heard the phrase, that is very likely to be it. However, as far as I know the band didn't have much or any impact in the United States, so I don't know where you would have come across them.
