I want to float out of my being
Into the dreamscape; where all realities are plain
I want to survey the landscape in my visions
To examine what perception truly is

I want to tour the lands in this sphere
I want to survey the realities in the atmosphere
To study the perception of reality
And to sift through the reality of perception

I want to sight from my dreamscape
The qualities alluded to my personality
The flaws of my being
The voids in my life
The realities of my past
The perception of my future
The haggard path I tour
Which makes our life sour

The empty dreams I chase
The blank life I lead
This is all I sight from this realm
This character in me I would shape

The flood of discovery flows in my path
From this realm I realise
That perception is never reality
And reality is never perception!
