I die in all my dreams so it seems I got a lot on my mind I watch my friends do important thing and I wish that I had the time I bought a dictionary so I could write down more words But the words starting flowing off the pages and I just starting getting lazy I hide my fear in metaphor Cause I wish I had more things to say I try to be artistic by being ambiguousistic But there not continuousistic thoughts in here! I just wish I had a pretty girl who could tell me everything I made was nearly as perfect as it seems in my dreams but it'll never be as it seems 'cause it's in my dreams! I think it's funny, that we're laughing My nose is running out of time My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park There's one thing I forgot to mention I call it my mind It helps me important things like calculating the time I've spent wasting, I spent talking all about this same old shit Well my mind is bottle and hey guess what? I'm about to open it My legs are starting to feel heavy My nose is running out of time My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park Know me for I can never edie Find me deep inside your mind Cut me off Rewind me I'd like to see you try I'd like to see you try I'd like to see you try Touch me with your shriveled hands Taste me and tell me what you think Hold me Destroy me I wonder if you can? I wonder if you can? I wonder if you can? What is this place? What is this place The is no reason here Am I to waste this lonely pace On the unfortunate fate that I fear Now off you go Now off you go To find the friend you've lost I see the breast and eyes the same Consult adults after they've crossed

Walk into a lobby of strange scenery A bunch of guest who all recognize me And at the front desk, guess who I see It's a girl I've only whispered about And she looking at me but she's staring much too long And she says Don’t you think that it’s strange you found me here And don’t you blink otherwise I’ll disappear Go to sleep if you want to see me again… Stay in bed, you’ve already traveled far And we’ll pretend, we’re dining on a shooting star And now my friend, promise me you’ll see me again… Somethings not right Was it something I said? ‘Cause what I said was in my head. Don’t you think, that’s it’s kind of crazy That’d I’d appear just a little hazy and Don’t you want a reason just to see me again?… I’ll behave however that you want me to If you take way the pain of the impending doom Because everything feels like it’s falling apart… Somethings not okay Meaning I can’t convey When there’s a delay on what I say
 Don’t you think that it’s strange you found me here And don’t you blink otherwise I’ll disappear Go to sleep if you want to see me again…

I'm having trouble seeing faces I'm having trouble seeing my own I'm having trouble going places I'm having trouble being left alone I'm having trouble seeing people Knowing there all going to die And I've tried Oh how I've tried Lord knows I've tried *you are lifted into the air, gasping with frustration*

Wait! I don't really wanna go But I don't want to stay but I feel that everything is coming much more than before It's gotta be a dream and if it's not I try to wake up before the quaking destruction of this scene Now I wish I didn't I have to go But I don't want to stay and that's okay No, no, no, no, no, no It couldn't be that way No it couldn't be that way Because I've seen is all before Visceral knocking on my door And after all the alcohol is being shot into my into my brain and it feels all the same And I know that I've got to go And I say it one more time And even though I know its a dream I find the impeding death And I can't wake up and I just dick around for a couple hours Until sunlight and I continue on to the next day And I just pray the third day comes soon And as the more I stay asleep the less if feels real when I wake up

I can't hear you Let's go What's the point in helping all these people If they're all just in my head What's the point in helping all these people If there all just gonna die What's the point? What's the point in helping all these strangers If they're all just in my head They're all just in my head! What's the point in helping all these people If they're all just gonna die What kind of strangers are these people? Do they think of you as friend? What is the right thing? Does it make you happy? What is your true face? Not yet What's the point in helping all these strangers? If they're all just in my head in my head in my head in my head

I got this Dad He is getting old I'll get his wrinkles when he loses his And I know It doesn't feel real It never really has And I guess it never will Sometimes I wish I could go back and live life as if it were a game Sometimes I wish it wasn't so hard to change to change to change to change And it goes on and on on and on... And it goes on and on on and on... And it goes on and on on and on... To change, yeah? To change, yeah! To change

Please don't go yet We finally just met Your voice like a lullaby Please talk but don't sing Soon my alarm will ring And I'll awake in my head And that's when everything feels peaceful But it doesn't last It doesn't last Doesn't last the same the same the sound *Boss battle ensues*

Take a look at me Tell me what you see Do you think it's me? Do you think it's me? Am I stuck I stuck in a dream? Am I stuck I stuck in a dream? Am I stuck I stuck in a tree? Am I stuck I stuck in a dream? Am I stuck I stuck in a tree? I don't know Take a look outside All that passes by Do you feel alive? I don't feel alive Am I stuck I stuck in a dream? Am I stuck I stuck in a dream? Am I stuck I stuck in a dream? Am I stuck I stuck in a tree? Am I stuck I stuck in a dream? Am I stuck I stuck in a tree? I don't know

about

*You dust off an inscription attached to an empty pedestal*

It reads:

Clocktown
An Apocalyptic Lucid Dream
A Pit of Me, inside my Skuukum House
A distant parallel Jack FU is the Hero of Time
The villain is the force that makes it feel real
