There is a place where I go that no one else knows,
Where mysteries flourish and excitement grows.
A place out of reach of any man's hands,
Safely hidden in a faraway land.
I sleep in the clouds, dream in the sky,
I'll keep dreaming as life passes by.
I think my dreams keep me sane,
I dream of happiness, a life without pain.
The day seems good until morning hits,
The world seems welcoming until my city's in bits.
My sweet, sweet dreams soon turn into a nightmare
My war-ridden life is one I can no longer bear.
