The Dream

We are the guardians of the dream
We're always silent to be free
Scream and you'll be unforgiven

I don't want to learn what I know
That the world is a dream by a sleeping god
Fragments of past times are flickering through
As distorted shadows, we live in his thoughts

As time goes by, the dream grows stronger day by day
And when we try we find that we can't turn away

We are the guardians of the dream
We're always silent to be free
Scream and you'll be unforgiven

If he should wake, we would all be real
Our doings could not be undone
We would be confronting our deepest fears
So sleep, and dream on, you sleeping one

And when he moved his head, a wrinkle in his eye
The world would stop, and we would turn towards the sky

We are the guardians of the dream
We're always silent to be free
Scream and you'll be unforgiven
