I do dream you
Allow me to believe you are the real me
I see you breathing under water
See you on both sides of a door
I didn't mean you to fathom what you bought
I'm away and anywhere to suffice
Every life filled with what will be
If my own will is from me
How do I take another mirror
How do I drink the whole shore
I do greet you
And slam the door in your face
You come in anyways
It's a long, long time before this takes place
I answer these these questions now
As to why I'm the only one
Who carries answers to their fathers
Who carries gray sky to the sun
I'm not the railway
I leave all of it to the air
Passing highway's traffic just lying there
Carry me away
Come in anyways
Both sides of the door
The closed and open door

    General CommentWords limit our mind. We need limits to feel. There is no way for you to prove to me that everything is not simply a product of my imagination, including you. Or everything is a product of your imagination, including me.

    I/You guess we will be one mind.

    It's what we bought.
    It's sad to see that ego has won.

    But let's move on

    General Commentyou live in the third dimension what do you expect. how often do you see an angel in here? not very often and remember that if it wasn't for the angels this song would not be made. of course it will play with your imagination.

    General Commentwow, one of the deeper but understandable J. Frusciante songs. A couple of little lyrics corrections make it even more interesting:

    "I'm away, I'm away, and anywhere should suffice."

    "Passing highway traffic, while just lying there."

    General Commentvery beautiful... i think this lyrics can be seen in the way we like to see it...

    maybe it's about another loved/detested ego/picture of his soul/phantom... words limit our mind... but i think he hates it ("And slam the door in your face ") but also admire it (Carry me away
    Come in anyways") ... on all accounts he needs it/him ("Come in anyways
    Both sides of the door
    The closed and open door

    I'm sorry for my bad english...
