You're tempting me
To all of life and all its pleasure
Take me to the dream
To the highs and the depths of my soul
Here we free thoughts inside
Giving up for giving time
But a world without end
Where no soul can descend
There will be no summertime
How lost life's been
Afraid of waking up
So afraid to take the dream
Shapes of angels the night casts
Lie dead but dreaming
In my past
And they're here
They want to meet you
They want to play with you
So take the dream
Can't break free and I hear them call
They want to plague you
They're here once more
They want to lay with you
They want to take you
To the shame of your past
Take the dream
Take me lead me far away
Take me there I'll fade away
But I can't hide and I cannot die
I take the dream
We're but fools of our fate
On this earth I shall wait
By the roots of my soul
I am loosing control
Take the dream
The sleepers in you
Shapes of angels so deep within you
Feel your soul drowning
Unloosen your soul
Drowning in waters of reality
Tell me what is reality
Tell me tell me thought of god
Do dreams fall from god
Tell me what dreams may come
Break free thoughts all gone
We've all come down
Take me there you're my ticket out a here
All come down
Take me out a here
Take me there

Live version (1991)

You're tempting me
To all of life and all its pleasure
Take me to the dream
To the highs and the depths of my soul

Here we free thoughts inside
Giving up for giving time
How lost life's been
Afraid of waking up
So afraid

To take the dream will come
I seek your heaven
Dream this far
To sleep forever
Nobody's here
There's no-one at home
Thoughts all wrong
We dream alone

If I'm perfect
Might take me here
If I'm perfect
Take me here
We're but fools of our fate
Of this earth I should take

I take the dream will come
I've seen no heaven
Dream this far
To sleep forever
Nobody's listening
There's no-one at home
Thoughts all gone
We dream alone

We're but fools of our fate
On this earth I shall wait
By the roots of my soul
I am losing control
Take the dream

The sleepers in you
Shapes of angels
So deep within you
Feel your soul
Drowning
Loosen your soul
Drowning

Drowning
What is reality
Tell me
What is reality
Tell me
What is reality
Tell me

We all come down

Take me here
Thoughts of god
Take me here
Wrath of god
Take me here
What dreams may come
Take me here
Dream you forever

Dreamer
Dreamer
We dream together
We will sleep forever
Take me here
