Shattered Glass

The Exit

Welcome to the kingdom
among pages and words.
Take the ticket into
reality of dreams.

Do not fear to take a step
towards imagining.
I have many names, but
I shall be your guide.

    Just follow my voice
    and never look back.
    The path is not straight
    yet as simple as that.
    Should you ever wish to leave
    the misty world of make-believe
    just follow the exit sign…

Do not fear to make a step
on the road of yellow bricks.
Walk towards the land
with a sky as dark as night.

Face the storm and thunder’s roar,
see the horrors long untold.
Find your way in labirynths,
let the pages guide you through.

    Just follow my voice
    and never look back.
    The path is not straight
    yet as simple as that.
    Should you ever wish to leave
    the misty world of make-believe
    just follow the exit sign…

Look around and don’t be fooled,
different views yet the same world.
You are still within your heart,
the one that no border knows.

Sail the seven mighty seas,
hold the compass, read the stars.
Hoist the battered Jolly Roger,
pirates of a yo-ho-ho!

Beyond the horizon lies a new chapter,
past the line lies what you seek.
Turn the page and forward go,
no regret, no looking back.

    Just follow my voice
    and never look back.
    The path is not straight
    yet as simple as that.
    Should you ever wish to leave
    the misty world of make-believe
    just follow the exit sign…

Now you are near, just a few more steps,
cross the forest’s fairy tales.
Let them take you, fear them not,
all of this is but a page.

Pass the test of strength and courage,
grab the sword and fight the beast.
Past the dragon’s mystic lair
lies a castle with your prize.

Exit from the land of dreams.

    Just follow my voice
    and never look back.
    The path is not straight
    yet as simple as that.
    Should you ever wish to leave
    the misty world of make-believe
    just follow the exit sign…

All of that was just a tale,
imagination written down.
Yet all of dreams may come to be,
believe it and your heart shall see.

I rather be in fantasy
that gives strength and confidence,
then live in this damned world,
full of fear and pain and tears.

I have found myself in dreams,
in the world of make-believe…
