With no abandon, with no regard
I'm throwing this heavy heart round the backyard.
Throw it your way, it blows up in my face
Just a game of catch you've been missing

Upstrokes...Doesn't everybody know the downstrokes...The downstrokes
Upstrokes...Doesn't everybody know the downstrokes...
I'm only tempo....rarely squeezing out this blood flow
I'm only tempo...rarely squeezing out this blood flow

So lets stop pretending...
Lets Stop, yeah lets stop, oh yeah lets stop..I said lets stop pretending
Lets stop pretending, and start explaining how coincidence is not a casualty..
How's we meet not by chance but by destiny.
And our dreams... are higher than the heavens.
Will we reach?

Imagine the Dark, with no side,
Imagine the other side, imagine the other side
Imagine the sky with no name,
The trees with no shadows, the shore with no end
Imagine yourself, obscure and alone
Solitude and dryness companions in all

Let's stop pretending
Let's Stop (yeah let's stop) Let's stop (oh, let's stop)
I said let's stop (Yea let's stop) pretending ( oh, let's stop)
Let's stop, pretending and start explaining
How coincidence is not a casualty
How we meet not by chance but by destiny.
And our dreams are higher than the heavens.
Will we reach?

Reality, or Live in Fantasy
Reality, or Live in Fantasy
And the snow has melted and the dreamer is still alive
Still Alive ! Still Alive! Are you still alive?
