In the labyrinth of the subconscious mind
Illusions create their own reality
I allow them to become as large as life
Another victim trapped in paradise.
I dance around the flames of lies
Becoming the other’s shadow
Deception’s dragon soars high in the sky
Seeking entrance to the forgotten realm
It has the key to the rusted gate that leads to
Forbidden pathways in my mind
Nights of fire, days of ice
Does my fancy possess the right to flight?
Through eyes as hazed as eternity
I lift the question to the sky.
Lifted into the night on wings of sleep
Over the chasm of frozen screams
Is life really life or is it
A dream within a dream?
