Hear me God I'm on the level
Mapping silence seeing things
Cryin' laughin' like the devil

Before the might of all that's seen
I'll raise my head and wake to dream
With a clean pair of eyes

Murdered gold and colors flashin'
Time like blood like flowin' hair
Faces mergin' airplanes crashin'

Before the might of all that's true
I'll raise my head and dream anew
With a clean pair of eyes

A clean pair of eyes
Don't need no one to blame
Don't need no disguise
No sugar to sweet my brain
A clean pair of eyes

Today I need no commentary
Today I do not need to speak
No explanation necessary

And before the might of all that's seen
I'll raise my head and dream again
With a clean pair of eyes

A clean pair of eyes
Don't need no right or wrong
Don't need no disguise
No sugar to fix my tongue
A clean pair of eyes

Liquid air and flags that ripple
A tambourine of smoke and suns
Love that blinds up fear that cripples

And before the might of all that's seen
I'll raise my head and wake to dream

And before the might of all that's true
I'll raise my head and dream anew

And before the might of all unnamed
I'll raise my head and dream again
Dream again

Dream again
Dream again
Dream
