Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Dream Catcher


Dream catcher;
Burning them in the dark
Where the lovesick lie
What if we don't?
The lonely fault was mine
Buried under a meaningless guise

Dream catcher;
Can you catch before the fall?
And if you don't?
Would our secrets remain secrets?
Are you the kind to fall?
Or the ones to jump off?

Dream catcher;
Writhing in temporary bliss
And we revel in the ephemera
I can't keep seeing the memories
The candles float upon the water
But the light hardly shines

Dream catcher;
I can't see you
Yet the melodies reach me
I'm blinded by the shroud
I can feel your hand
But where's the warmth?

Dream catcher;
And you who slip through
A quiet dream
Hardly remembered
And yet she went quietly
But I still see all of our ghosts

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
