A song inspired by Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" series.


Lyrics: Old gods, old gods, Won't you come to me? Let me take you in my arms And I can set you free, For even my embrace Is easier to face Than the cold, empty temples where you sleep.


Old gods, old gods, Won't you take my hand? When you finally come to rest, Then you'll understand- Though my arms are frail And my skin is pale, My heart is hot and my kiss is deep.


When the tale is no longer told, When the altar finally gets cold, When they topple the towers of gold, This hand you can hold.


No Dream, no Dream Can be your bed, No Dream can be your lover, Keep you safe and fed. When your name ain't sung By any living tongue, Well, you ain't too fast and you ain't too young.


When the tale is no longer told, When the altar finally gets cold, When they topple the towers of gold, This hand you can hold.


When the tale is no longer told, When you've lost your suit of armor made of gold, When the sacrificial altar gets cold, This hand you can hold-
