Take off your shoes, take off yourself
Take off your raincoat, settle down
There is a place for you to go
Take my pretense for a time

My long lost friend
If you're not here to hear me scream
Where all the dragons are my friends
Do I need you to make me real
Quantum strings within my brain

My long lost friend
Not everybody has a brain
Not everybody wishes well
Sometimes there's someone to blame
Sometimes good's better than bad
Sometimes good's better than bad

As the devil met me in the wishing well
That in the end it's just about you and me
Though dragons are good for the soul
Open for scrutiny, ridicule, and indulgence
As fear is truly the Mindkiller,
Everything is gained,
But I know as we go round and round
It's the happy moments along the way
Make it, OK
