First dream. Then dreaming,
but to find yourself really escaping.
Escape to something out there,
real out there,
something that is more lasting.
But dreams all end no matter
if your awake or sleeping.
And desolation is what follows
and slowly comes creeping.
So then you wake with sorrow,
sorrow for what you have been missing.
You’re missing that dream
that you are no longer dreaming.
That sorrow you felt turns into
helplessness, and comes out weeping.
To understand that the dream you’ve had is something you are leaving.
In heartache, the dream
will lie there teasing.
So then isn’t it a nightmare
which you have just been dreaming.
