Why do those who try to create reality from dreams
end up with nightmares that are real?
Why those who aspire the knowledge of gods
end up with haunting demons and fear?
Why those who attempt to fly
end up with bruised wings?
Why those satisfied with the cold moon in the mirror
end up being best of the kings?
How do you break this evil spell
when every now and then idols give in?
And all those fictitious idols
will they ever help me to win?
