accustomed to shadows my eyes adjust
awoke in a fog I rise up
my hands hold the walls but they disappear
careful footsteps trip through air
I need no support aimlessly floating
I am who I am, I go where I’m going
accustomed to shadows my eyes adjust
this is no dream
I’m some kind of ghost

I found myself in a strange universe
I don’t know how I got here
only know I belong here

I see them clearly on the other side
but they see through me
I hear them clearly laugh and weep
but they don’t hear me
any closer we’d burn
any further we’d freeze
but it’s gotta be how it’s gotta be

I found myself in a strange universe
whatever happened happened to be
but it breaks my heart
it shatters every piece
maybe someday we’ll meet again
wherever I was no I’ll never go back again

it’s all illusion
whatever blinds you
there’s so much magic
if you just imagine
