The Truth is Here

Play

[Arjen Lucassen:]
Last night I have that dream again
My world was black as night
Plagued by visions of a future world
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(Mr. L, did you take your meds?)

[Arjen Lucassen:]
I sang about these dreams
Warning men of his demise
Wasted words that no one heard
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(Won't you please relax, I'll make your bed)

[Arjen Lucassen:]
Today I had that dream again
I roamed among the stars
On the wings of an amazing flight
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(Mr. L, do you feel O.K.?)

[Arjen Lucassen:]
To a place place beyond the time
Where the sunlight doesn't warm
and color bleeds into the night!
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(We may have to decrease your dose today)

[Arjen Lucassen:]
I know the truth is out there
If you want to see
I know the truth is in here
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(Why should we belive you?)
[Arjen Lucassen:]
If you want to feel

Now I have that dream again
I live beneath the waves
in a realm of grace and majesty
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(Mr. L, can I ease your mind?)

[Arjen Lucassen:]
In the distance shadows loom
Cold machines rise from the deep
In a world once proud and free
[Liselotte Hegt:]
Would you free your thoughts, let it all abide)

[Arjen Lucassen:]
I hate to have that dream again
They live inside my head
Feeling everything I feel inside
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(Mr. L, can you please be still?)

[Arjen Lucassen:]
They speak to me in dreams
They can see all I can see
They have always been my guide
[Liselotte Hegt:]
(You gotta hush now please have another pill)

[Arjen Lucassen:] I know the truth is out there
[Liselotte Hegt:] (Why should we believe you?)
[Arjen Lucassen:] If you want to see
I know the truth is in here
[Liselotte Hegt:] Why should we deceive you?
[Arjen Lucassen:]If you want to feel

[Liselotte Hegt:] We are alone
There is no one there
You don't have to be afraid
[Arjen Lucassen:](Can't you see through this masquerade?)

[Liselotte Hegt:] We are alone
[Arjen Lucassen:]{We are all close)
[Liselotte Hegt:] There is no one there
[Arjen Lucassen:](I am so scared)
[Liselotte Hegt:] You don't have to be afraid
[Arjen Lucassen:](Can't you see through this masquerade?)

[Liselotte Hegt:] We are alone
[Arjen Lucassen:](We are all close)
[Liselotte Hegt:] There is no one there
[Arjen Lucassen:](I am so scared)
[Liselotte Hegt:] You don't have to be afraid
[Arjen Lucassen:](Can't you see through this masquerade?)

[Liselotte Hegt:] We are alone

[Liselotte Hegt:] There is no one there
