Last night I had a dream
That I had 11ml of vodka
Injected into my hand,
And it hurt like a bitch
But I couldn’t feel a thing,
After a couple of seconds
I was numb.

Anaesthetised to everything -
I could fly through the sky,
I could jump a million stories
And I would never die,
I’d try to hold my breath
For a million days
I will never die,
I will never die.

I escape from prison,
And scale all of the buildings
And evade the guards
(They never did see me),
I was as quiet as quiet as a mouse
In the mouth of a lion,
I couldn’t stop cryin’
When it bit my head off.

And I know I’m dreaming;
Nothing ever hurts when you’re dreaming,
Except when you
Perceive the truth;
Think about it all day
Waste my youth.
What do they represent -
These images in my head?
Why can’t I wake,
For goodness sake?!
I can’t tell what’s real and what is fake.
Tell me what’s real, what is fake.
