Dreaming of Elephants
(Christoph Brill)

Whenever I wander through my barren biosphere
that wasted land inside
I cannot leave behind
Towards the silver lining,
slowly coming near
A blink before awakening
Can't remember anything at all

Cracks in my comfort zone
gradually tightening the trauma queen inside
I cannot leave behind
It feels equally familiar and frightening
My dreams revealed a clue
But I can't remember anything at all
Anything at all

Dreaming of elephants
Quite naturally passing by
Shaking my common sense
Stop me from reasoning why

I am a tightrope dancer
high above the ground
Try to keep the balance
on a burning rope
It’s tearing right behind
with a simmering sound
Just a blink before awakening
Can't remember anything at all
Anything at all

Dreaming of elephants
Quite naturally passing by
Shaking my common sense
Stop me from reasoning why
