What If

What if I told you the sky was purple 
and that the clouds were really a dark green 
could you imagine the luscious possibility 
Or is your mind a reality check machine 

Take a trip into your subconscious 
maybe what you see is a dream 
maybe the stars bleed blue 
as red seeps into the ocean stream 

We are taught as a child what to think 
The language and colors of life 
And not to challenge the system 
Not to looks back, like Lot's wife 

So imagine, you lay out in a field 
Yellow grass sways in the wind 
The lavender sky stretches before your eyes 
and nature's balance hazily ends 

Forget what you've been told 
Forget it while you can 
Before you become too senile 
Because time waits for no man 

The clouds are green I tell you, 
The vast oceans are red 
The purple skies adorn a silver moon 
As it shines through the window near my bed 

Sleep well love, because in the morning 
The skies will once again be blue 
After your imagination sobers 
The possibilities become few.
