I had a dream where nothing was what it seemed.
It was dark and then too bright and all my words left my mind.
I saw a bright beam where everything was what I’d deemed.
The darkness fell over the shadows and swallowed everything that was kind.
The light fled and tomorrow was a treasure I just knew I had to find.
Yesterday was lost and everyone stood with a great amount in cost.
It was sad and it was glad, but everyone threw it up for a toss.
Passing through time with glimmering bright lights,
Where were the dark lonely nights?
Flash-backs timing the tracks as most folks fell through tiny little cracks,
Each one flashed back on top of crumpling down broken old stacks.
Then it was cold and then it got hot.
Today was here and being blotted out like a tiny black dot.
Flash-backs and flash-backs sending millions tracks of light to never forget me not.
