The Dreamer - Lyrics

The dreamer glimpses things he has never
seen before, and they will change him forever
In the world of dreams,
things happen that are not possible in the world he came from
Questions are answered,
but the answers are in a language he's never heard before.
He understands that language, though, in the dream
Everything is resolved in the dream, or so it seems
But it almost remains in the dream.
When he awakens, he will forget that language
It will be incomprehensible again
He will only remember that when he heard it, he understood it
He will forget the music he heard in his dream
Music that made him fly
Music that made him escape from his body
Music that made him escape from time itself
But he will remember when he awakens
That there was this music
That there must be music like this somewhere
Even if it is only in dreams
The dreamer experiences everything passively
He lies asleep and it moves through him
These experiences may be more
wondrous than anything else he's ever tasted
But they are perpetually out of his grasp
The dreamer has no power
He has no will
The dreams enter through him
And he is their vessel
