Voltaire: I want to wake up from this horrible dream.
I want to open up my eyes to find life's not as it would seem.
I want to wake up...
Chibi: Wake up.
Voltaire: ...from this horrible dream.
I want to...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...open up my eyes...
Voltaire: ...to find life's...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...not as it would seem.

Voltaire: The cabinet floats in the murky water, bobbing in the slime that trickles out of the cerebellum...
Chibi: Who knows what lurks there in your mind?
Voltaire: ...and right on down your spine.
Well, I don't know what you've been told, but there's more than one truth, this I know.
I don't know just what you fear, but take a look in here.
Chibi: This love is a nightmare that we share.

Voltaire: And when the walls of earth rise up around you...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...rise to another plane...
Voltaire: ...and wake up from this horrible dream.
Chibi: Wake up, Love.
Voltaire: I want to...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...open up my eyes...
Voltaire: ...to find life's...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...not as it would seem.
Voltaire: I want to wake up from this horrible dream.
Chibi: Wake up, Love.
Voltaire: I want to...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...open up my eyes...
Voltaire: ...to find life's...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...not as it would seem.

Voltaire: The eternal question of reality, it still stands today.
Is life a dream that we believe, only to fade away?
Chibi: Who knows what takes me deep inside?
Voltaire: Is death the door or it the end?
Did I take my life only to find myself in another bed...
Chibi: Don't you fall in so far on me, Dear.
Voltaire & Chibi: ...dreaming another life?

Voltaire: And when the walls of earth rise up around you...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...rise to another plane.
Voltaire: And when the arms of earth reach up to grab you...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...rise to another plane...
Voltaire: ...and wake up from this horrible dream.
Chibi: Wake up, Love.
Voltaire: I want to...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...open up my eyes...
Voltaire: ...to find life's...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...not as it would seem.
Voltaire: I want to wake up from this horrible dream.
Chibi: Wake up, Love.
Voltaire: I want to...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...open up my eyes...
Voltaire: ...to find life's...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...not as it would seem.

Voltaire: I never felt like I belonged here...
Chibi: Here with you.
Voltaire: ...with these creatures so depraved.
Chibi: With all of the beasts that lurk inside.
Voltaire: Now, if only I could...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...find a way out of this place...
Voltaire: ...I could finally...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...plan my escape and wake up.

Voltaire: I want to wake up from this horrible dream.
Chibi: Wake up, Love.
Voltaire: I want to...
Voltaire & Chibi: ...open up my eyes to find life's not as it would seem.
Voltaire: I want to wake up from this horrible dream.
Chibi: Wake up, Love.
Voltaire & Chibi: To open up my eyes to find life's not as it would seem...
Voltaire: ...and wake up!

Chibi: Tear them from the covers of our minds.
What you want is right before your eyes.
Voltaire: Just wake up.
Chibi: Wake up.
Wake up.
Wake up.
Wake up.
Wake up.
