Just Like with Alice
The dream be over, soldiers in front of me, they're opening their doors with a smile and slobbering. I stand nude there waiting. I know, many things can be taken out of my hands. What is there? Hills full of green, even the blue is on the background. Remembering all these little moments when I hadn't tons of water under my skin. Would I wish to change something not found? Oh, yes, honey, make a wish. Something you want, every bird is free in your heart. Parrots, white doves, owls in the night. Let them fly, honey, otherwise, they will die, don't want to scare you. Go, honey, and have fun. Does that fish scare your birds? You aren't here, oh, I forgot, yeah, no games or trees across my sight. Just lords and clowns. Hey, how to outrun them? Honey, I have no clue.
