Dance of Death Lyrics

Let me tell you a story to chill the bones
About a thing that I saw
One night wandering in the everglades
I'd one drink but no more

I was rambling, enjoying the bright moonlight
Gazing up at the stars
Not aware of a presence so near...

    This song perfectly sums up my experience of Psychosis. I started hearing voices and got delusional. The hallucinations that I had made it very difficult for me to function normally.

    I feel that this song is about the Ghost Dance. This is a spiritual experience with the old ones.
