I Must Be Dreaming


Last time with Helene Troy: https://lancemyblogcanbeatupyourblog.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/maps/

Everything is gray. Helene Troy’s business suit is the color of window putty. An expressionless man in a neutral wool suit slams a stack of colorless papers on her desk. Helene trys to touch them, then recoils in terror. Her hands are missing. Blood is everywhere. It’s gray too. Her screams echo helplessly.

Helene wakes up sweating. She removes her wet t-shirt.

“I hate that dream. ”

She rises, grabs her acoustic guitar, a pencil and a small gray notebook and writes.

“I’m not scared of ghosts. Halloween isn’t a thrill. What terrifies me is being run of the mill.”

Like Blossom, This is a very special Halloween themed episode of Helene Troy. The rest of the story can be found here: https://lancemyblogcanbeatupyourblog.wordpress.com/the-ballad-of-helene-troy/ It is also a 100 word response to VelvetVerbosity’s 100 word challenge http://www.velvetverbosity.com/2011/10/29/100-words-grief-frailty-fright/ of “HALLOWEEN”. She said to scare her. Her anti corporate punk rock ness will appreciate this.


Today’s song is weird one for me. My wife and I like Evanescence a lot. I really enjoy their early stuff. Bleed (I Must Be Dreaming) is from their demo record. I loved Amy Lee’s voice. I think Helene would too.
