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.
