Dreaming of that face again 
It's bright and blue and shimmering  Grinning wide
And comforting me with it's three warm and wild eyes
On my back and tumbling 
Down that hole and back again  Rising up
And wiping the webs and the dew from my withered eye

In, out, in, out, in, out

A child's rhyme stuck in my head
It said that life is but a dream 
I've spent so many years in question 
To find I've known this all along 
So good to see you
I've missed you so much
So glad it's over
I've missed you so much
Came out to watch you play
Why are you running away?
Came out to watch you play
Why are you running?

 Shrouding all the ground around me
Is this holy crow above me
 Black as holes within a memory 
And blue as our new second sun
I stick my hand into his shadow 
To pull the pieces from the sand
 Which I attempt to reassemble 
To see just who I might have been
I do not recognize the vessel 
But the eyes seem so familiar 
Like phosphorescent desert buttons  Singing one familiar song
So good to see you
I've missed you so much
So glad it's over
I've missed you so much
Came out to watch you play
Why are you running away?
Came out to watch you play
Why are you running away?

 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye

So good to see you once again 
I thought that you were hiding 
And you thought that I had run away
 Chasing the tail of dogma 
I opened my eye 
I opened my eye 
I opened my eye and there we were
I opened my eye 
I opened my eye 
I opened my eye and there we were

So good to see you once again 
I thought that you were hiding from me
And you thought that I had run away
 Chasing a trail of smoke and reason  Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
 Prying open my third eye
