Roaming inbetween the worlds of sleep and awake
Seems so far away from where I've been and untrue but unafraid
Intrusting -- my soul -- I know I must be taken to see the world that is
Not so far from now

Imaginations come and sweep the shores of my mind
Letting it be, visions pass, and emotions arise--
Letting them go and beyond, are doors I've never seen, opening one by one

(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
I hear a voice, hear a voice calling out to me
Look inside, see the light now ever holding you
All the truth is all you need to make of your reality, its right here
Look deep within your shell

Finding out a galaxy of planets and stars within me
Listening to each of them singing the same silent melody
I've never seen such beauty in possibility -- no speck of doubt or fear

(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
I hear a voice, hear a voice calling out to me
I see inside, see the light now ever holding me
All the truth, all I need to make of this reality it's -- beauty within the shell

(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
I hear a voice, hear a voice calling out to me
I see inside, see the light now ever holding me
All the truth, all I need to make of this reality, it's inside
Right here within this shell

The sandglass starts for another time's beginning from within
Cotton fields, mama's arms are gently unfolding me into the new...

(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
[Reading]
Here from behind my sight, my thoughts my mind
Show from the light
The time is right
And from the depth within show the balance
Of outer and inner harmony
Mind and heart, soul and spirit undivided
Here's where teh true strength and beauty lies
We'll see this before us with our own eyes
We'll see, with our own eyes... LOVE

(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
I hear a voice, hear a voice calling out to me
I see inside, see the light now ever holding me
All the truth, all I need to make of this reality it's -- beauty within the shell

    Outro to Ghost in the Shell 2nd Gig -- love it :D

    btw: noticed that in the first block "Seems so far away from where I've been and untrue but unafraid", i believe instead of 'untrue' its 'unsure' however. But I don't know :\

    Great song other wise :D

    General Comment"Roaming inbetween the worlds of sleep and awake
    Seems so far away from where I've been and untrue but unafraid
    Intrusting -- my soul -- I know I must be taken to see the world that is
    Not so far from now"-to me, this is basically saying that the world around him seems so unreal that its like he's partially awake and that he's scared of what he sees and every where he turns he can see the future of the world.
    "Imaginations come and sweep the shores of my mind
    Letting it be, visions pass, and emotions arise--
    Letting them go and beyond, are doors I've never seen, opening one by one"-from here, he is explaining how he views the world. how he lets his imagination help him interperet his surroundings and reality and how he'll go day by day with his life as well as any situations that may occur.
    "(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
    I hear a voice, hear a voice calling out to me
    Look inside, see the light now ever holding you
    All the truth is all you need to make of your reality, its right here
    Look deep within your shell"-this is basically where he is now trying to tell himself to wake up from his dreams and to take a look at the reality he lives in. here he understands he's been dreaming and is now fully awake and is seeing the meaning behind every little detail of his reality then he compares his reality to his innerself.
    "Finding out a galaxy of planets and stars within me
    Listening to each of them singing the same silent melody"-from here, he's interpereted his reality and is starting to delve deeper into his own self conciousness to see what he can find out and he explains how his mental state is like a vast universe.
    "(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
    I hear a voice, hear a voice calling out to me
    I see inside, see the light now ever holding me
    All the truth, all I need to make of this reality it's -- beauty within the shell"-from here, he is hearing a voice that is telling him to view the world around him and he is starting to see the truth of both reality and dream.
    "(Wake up and show the light, wake up the time is right)
    I hear a voice, hear a voice calling out to me
    I see inside, see the light now ever holding me
    All the truth, all I need to make of this reality, it's inside
    Right here within this shell"-here, he is explaining how the truth is himself and that reality is somehow changing that truth thats within him.
    from here, you can see how things are going, he's discovering more and more about himself and is realizing that reality itself is changing the truth that is himself.
