In the land of dreams

Find a way to defend yourself.

The head in the clouds, dancing in the shadows.

To take a trip and go into the dreams.

I'm leaving tonight and coming back tomorrow.

Not to be afraid of this damn fate.

I close my eyes, slide slowly.

In the land of dreams, in the kingdom of fairies.

Then begins my quest on this golden road.

Fighting hunches and defying all the angels.

At the end of this road, there is a blue lake.

Around the green grass and a beautiful oak tree.

All the feelings are in each of them.

At the end, a dark cave attracts my interest.

I approach this cave from where a monster emerges.

A metal snake that plays with his eyes.

I tell him, "go back to the shadows, don't come and haunt me anymore".

It goes away crawling, disturbing of truth.

Thus ends my quest in the land of dreams.

I woke up slowly one beautiful summer morning.

All these unanswered questions that have been hiding.

They will perhaps, one day, finally fly away.
