A Dream of Home

Your big green eyes have swallowed my mind And stolen my sight My mind has bled and turned my captor I'm healing faster Can't do it alone Can't do it alone Behind me... I've burned up the veil... And now... I cannot fail I'm not only just smitten... by the words that you've written I had a Dream A Dream of us A Dream of us back home You know, we've come so far The gears of time are grinding us together In the clockwork skies Spilling from our eyes I feel the lies that keep me from you Now they lie broken Billions of years can't hide you from me Never again So far from home Far from home And now, I wait alone... Alone incarnate Wait, for something like never... Will I wander forever? I would give everything to touch your heart I would sell all the world to pay your ransom And the transaction... underway I want your mind... You hold my mind... Your pretty eyes have made me homesick Beyond the sky You want my mind... I hold your mind... Your pretty lies have crushed my sight I'm not alive
