Thrown down through the arms of sleep
She fell through the ivory morning
Deep into the waters of the one she called love
She paled in the wake of what some call a dream

But you cannot know a dream
Till you've known the nightmare

When I stood with you against the storm
And I tried once again, well I said
"I'd like to leave you with something warm"
How many times drowning in the sea, drowning

That was when the dream took her prisoner
And she knew the dream was over
But, the nightmare was not over

Still some call that a dream
The nightmare, the nightmare

Well, you cannot know a dream
When you turn away you don't know
You'll never care, the night is not your friend
And you have not had her and when the nightmare ends

But you never understand when you're gone
She wakes up calling out, oh, calling out
As children may cry as she will
Anytime, oh, anywhere blinded by the light of the day

She has known the nightmare, so about the moon
And her sisters, how dare he take them prisoner
Well, if she had flung out her heart against him
Then in all of her wisdom, oh well, that was a mystery

That was when the dream took her prisoner
And she knew the dream was over
But the nightmare was not over

Somewhere in her ancient ways
She walks through the night
And then she tries to get through the day
Some will never know or share any kind of dream

The nightmare, this is not the world
This is not the world, this is not the world
The nightmare, she wants him to fight anytime, anywhere
She wants him to stand up, she wants him to win

This is not the world, this is not the world
This is not the real world, blinded by the light of the day
Blinded by the light, she was blinded
By the light of the day, blinded by the day
