The Dreamer Is Still Asleep

May I ask you all for silence
The dreamer is still asleep
May the goddess keep us from single vision
And you too sleep
The dreamer is still asleep
The dreamer is still asleep
He’s inventing landscapes and the magnetic fields
Working out the means of escape
We’ll cut across the crop circles
He says no, not much time left
For these escape attempts
Look at it this way
In ten years’ time
Who’ll care or even remember
One dies like that
Deep within it
Almost inside it
It’s there for reason
I’ll give you my old address
Take that little book
To tear or cut the paper
The beginning is also the end
Time defines it
Time defines it
It will end
Like close friendship
Nothing could be further
We forget the space between people and things is empty
We forget and don’t notice the loss
Crossing into venerable degeneration
Such radiant pollution
The god with the silver hat
Surveys these vast contaminations
The dreamer is still dreaming
The dreamer is still dreaming
In the heart of your heart
Your eye/I remains
Is that you?
Is that blister you call loveless?
Your whole life is
A cold slow shock
Your whole life is
A cold slow shock
Take all your time
Drop the shabby shadow down
Through the hissy mists of history
The dreamer is still dreaming
The dreamer is still dreaming
May I ask you all for silence
Will he wake in time
To catch the sunset
May I ask you all for silence
May I ask you all for silence
