Whew girl….a very visual piece that left me unsettled…disturbing too…exactly what this kind of art is intended for I’m sure.  That guitar solo was extraordinary as was the rest of the music.  Was that you playing or someone else?  The lyrics blew my mind because of the very detailed description.  The only suggestion if I may offer one, is that the ” scratched me with a nightmare ” phrase loses impact in the chorus when it’s mentioned in the verse.  Other then that I can offer nothing except my compliments to you for a great piece of work!

Hi Dori. Thanks so much for your remarks on Scratched by a nightmare. I thought your idea is excellent. It’s already been recorded and cut though but I’ll try to talk to my co-writer (vocalist and arranger) about the change. I do think it merits possibilities. This is exactly the kind of feedback I look for girlfriend so I thank you.

Thanks Reid. The vocal and arrangement is my phenomenal co writer, Chris Ising. This song was really fun for us and an up and coming heavy metal group picked it up.

Scratched by a Nightmare

Written by Fly (Laurie) Williams

Scratched by a Nightmare

(c)March'14 Williams/Ising


the devil paid a visit to my sleep last night
he was filled with rage 'N' fire and just itchin for a fight
he came at me a fireball - red eyes that burned the night
and he scratched me with a nightmare - before he said good nite

chorus

I was scratched by a nightmare and my blood is runnin cold
I was screamin’ out loud bout my soul that I had sold
I was scratched by a nightmare in the middle of the night
now I'm sweatin’ and I'm shakin’ -like I'm fightn' for my life

V2

there was spirits in black hoods closin in on everything
there was ghosts n fog and brimstone and all kinds of scary things
in the fury and the chaos I felt his red hot sting
he scratched me with a nightmare
from his sharp and fiery wing

chorus

V3
I heard he paid these visits from the stories of the dead
I knew that he would tangle when my soul was safe in bed
but what they never told me was the terror in his call
and tho I fought my damndest - I was torn and ripped and all
when I was
chorus
