Drinking from a dream –
I build a reality on borrowed time
From gorgeous lands to lonely waters.
In the plain beauty of clear skies
I sit down on a marble floor
And open the book one more time.
nice times await us
to treat our withering hopes
to feed our mind’s hunger
All ropes are now cut and the horses are free
