Deca
All In a Dream
[Intro – voice samples]
One two three go

[Verse 1 – Deca and voice samples]
Last of a dyin' breed
On the path to find
A lamb layin’ in the lap of a lion
Laughing and crying with a magnifyin'
Gla** to rewind lookin' back at time
Looked so long I forgot to live
God forbid they put a nail in the coffin lid
And I don’t give what I got to give
You gotta play your part before you cross the bridge
A bird perched on a branch said:
“There's a whole lot of devils in a man's head”
I agree, I can see ‘em dance in my skull
There's some things that we can't control
He said he saw it all from a tree of knowledge in the garden of life
From bright days to the darkest nights
And that the pain of life was a part of the fight
It made a saint of the Buddha and a martyr of Christ
In fact
As thе world pirouettes and the mothеr of all reflects back what exists in us
The aim is to learn what I came here to learn
I was Edenville-bound but I missed the bus
Missed the train, mystified
[Mister ten, how do you feel?]
Like Harry Haller, or Howard Beale
Trying to tighten loose screws with a power drill
To lay the foundation on sacred ground
I got to build, even when you break me down
I got to deal with myself or escape this town
In the belly where the venomous snakes abound
A barbed wire crown, hunkered down
Safe and sound with the blinds drawn
I let my mind wander and explore the depths
But get pulled in the ocean when the tide's strong

[Chorus – Deca]
All in a dream
All in a vision
All is forgiven when the walls of a prison
Fall to the earth with a bang
And you don't have a scapegoat you're the only person to blame
Focus in
Look at Phaethon’s broken limbs and the man with the cobra skin
He asked for a hand that you won’t extend
And had a eighty milligram and a dope syringe
All in a dream
All in a vision
All is forgiven when the walls of a prison
Fall to the earth with a bang
And you don't have a scapegoat you’re the only person to blame
Came from the city of the lost
Where everything pure gets nailed to a cross
Every now and then you escape the façade
Every deep breath you inhale the exhaust

[Verse 2 – Deca]
The mind adapts I need reminders to mind the gaps
And the paradigms designed to bind and trap
You can bite and scratch split hairs with an iron axe
But don't throw me in the briar patch
Through a gla** dark, blind as bats
With no road signs or maps
On the path to find a lamb laying in a lion's lap
While the trumpets blare and the sirens blast
Yesterday I had a debt to pay
I owed apologies for my escapades
With no rhyme or reason for the mess I made
It was Dionysian but less depraved
I'm adept at laying to rest all the best things
When the needle hits the red on the pressure gauge
Kept in a cage, suppressing rage
’Till it builds up and we go our separate ways
[Chorus – Deca]
All in a dream
All in a vision
All is forgiven when the walls of a prison
Fall to the earth with a bang
And you don't have a scapegoat you're the only person to blame
Focus in
Look at Phaethon's broken limbs and the man with the cobra skin
He asked for a hand that you won't extend
And had a eighty milligram and a dope syringe
All in a dream
All in a vision
All is forgiven when the walls of a prison
Fall to the earth with a bang
And you don't have a scapegoat you're the only person to blame
Came from the city of the lost
Where everything pure gets nailed to a cross
Every now and then you escape the façade
Every deep breath you inhale the exhaust

[Outro – voice samples]
Excuse me sir
What's the time?
The time?
Yes sir
