IN MY DREAMS, YOU’RE STILL ALIVE

We will climb above electric light
On a cloudless nineteen-ninety’s night
And let the sole juror deliberate
As we drink our forty ounces dry

Elusive love, ephemeral and extrasensory
Ethereal, illusional, hallucinogenic is love
To involve oneself requires a certain blindness
That’s achieved only by gazing fixedly
It’s a lie, it’s a hoax, it’s the cruelest joke in the world
When we destroy the very things that attracted us

In my dreams, you’re still alive
In my dreams, you never died
That’s why I’ve been spending so much time in my dreams
