I come so close, so near
That I almost got out of my shell
When a pink coloured vision did appear
A girl with something to sell

The girl offered me a pocket size sun
I beheld its innocent smile
She said "If you wanna have fun,
It will take you to heaven for awhile"

An inch from the blue skies ceiling
I was touched by her careful fingertips
With the sun we shared our feelings
And I finally kissed her ruby lips

She started to sing a lullaby
Origined from ancient Senoi
"In dream's realm can no one die
Sleep safe my little boy"

The sun cut my eyes like a dropblade
Drew elseworlds in the sand
My memories began to fade
And did suddenly slip through my hands

In the sand I found two wonderful shells
As like as two peas
And I thought I could hear the sound of bluebells
Behind the roaring seven seas...

    General CommentThis is so romantic. I don´t know, if it is about consuming drugs. I´ve always seen this as a tale or a dream. The whole album is like a journey through dreams. Listening to that always calms me down and helps me to relax. By the way: It is perfect to have a romantic evening with the one you love! ;)

    General CommentThis is a real nice song, reminds me of 60s psychadelic rock like Pink Floyd. Also, the only Tiamat song I like (i'm not really into metal)

    well, I'm pretty certain it's about consuming fun psychadelic drugs, with a possible sex encounter.

    General CommentI'm not positive, but I think I've read that this entire album is about psychadelic drugs.
