There’s a world beyond ours that is quite far away
but arriving at its gate is simple.
The effects it has can ramble up your psyche
or bring a smile to your dimples.
Just go to sleep and it will seem
that you’ve just entered into the dream
A dream is something of the mind
or maybe there’s something more
that takes you out of reality
and make the unconscious unbored.
Take up your steps and you will find
these dreams are more than a trick of the mind
The hopeless romantic will dream his loves
and sweeping them all of their feet.
A thing the man couldn’t do out this realm
makes his visions of courtship unbeat.
And maybe someday he’ll get the courage
to get the girl and finally flourish.
The guilty man is not so lucky
for his acts follow him to the gates.
His conscience never rests in the night
for the powers of justice don’t wait.
So if he doesn’t die of his unworthy causes
he may come to change, trade bad for applauses.
The little girl will hold on to her horsey,
pretending to ride with the wind.
Her dreamscape’s impressive for one of her age:
a prairie that never shall end.
Escaping her pains with the dreams that she has
may give her the joy to deal with the crass.
The king on his throne will think something different,
for the simple is what he will yearn.
Walking on the streets with no recognition
is the best treasure he’d want to earn.
He prefers to escape this affairs of the day
by going to the realm where things go his way.
Even the working man has his need
to add some color to gray.
A wonderland of endless beauty.
No drugs will get in his way.
And maybe if he kicks the addiction he’ll know
then the colors he saw will fountain and flow
Maybe the most wonderful dreams of all
come from the baby asleep.
The confusing visions go through his head
and yet, he will not make a peep.
So next time he wakes for the food he craves
he’ll eat then sleep: back to the land of babes.
The world of sleep is a curious thing
and maybe we’ll never quite know
What makes these visions come and live
so that we’re compelled to go.
But one thing’s for sure, and it’s just what it seems
once you go unconscious and enter those dreams.
