Big man stands behind an open door 
Said, leave your lady on the cement floor. 
Got some kicks, want to take a ride?
I said, yeah!
"Take your pick, leave yourself behind"
I said, yeah!

I've no fear but for falling down 
So look out below I am falling now 
Oh please understand I just need, my friend, 
A way a way a way home 

 Tried to walk, found a severed hand 
 Recognized it by the wedding band 

Said it's ok, do you want some more?
I said, yeah!
Said you'll see dragons after three or four
I said, yeah!

 Under stand I'm not falling down
I said, look around, the rooms taller now, 
I can't close my eyes, 
 Cause I see the sound in waves 
In wave, lets me stay calm 

If I don't lose control 
 Explore and not explode 
A preternatural other plane 
With the power to maintain 

Like a tear in all we know 
Once dissolved we are free to grow 
What is human, what is more? 
I'll answer this when I get home
