by Paul Gilbert

Whenever I
I close my eyes
Then I don't mind being the way I am
But whenever I try
Explaining why
I know I never can

Now that it's
Gone, paths I used to travel
Gone, things I used to handle
Gone, once I had a choice what to be

But then god kissed me
And I lost it when I fainted in his arms
Have pity on me brother
I'm trapped behind the mirror
I'm out here on the border

Wondering why
Why was it I?
Maybe my mind wouldn't have come this way
If I'd taken my time
Answers only unwind
When you can't look away

Maybe 'cause
I want the secret broken
I want the casket open
I need to see what no eyes can see

And when god kissed me
Then I dreamed them when I fainted in her arms
Now I've got to go on sleeping

Lean in a little closer
And I'll tell you what I'm dreaming
I'll tell you what I'm dreaming

I see time without beginning
Space without an ending
I see bodies strong and running
With minds not comprehending
Have pity on your brother
Please have pity on your sister
Take pity on each other
And on every living creature

Whenever I
Open my eyes
I can't believe it's real
It's a jungle outside
People just survive
They can't reach the high ideal

But I
Know if I can't recover, at least I
Know, I know the book from cover to cover, and who
Knows, I might dream forever
Since I've met the world's greatest lover
When god kissed me
And I knew it when I fainted in his arms

Let's dream together people
