When I sleep
My eyes are open
Shimmering like stars
Under an eclipse of reason
Trailing shadows in the dark

Capricious and mercurial
Trickster bard and mage
My mentor is an oracle
A pundit of the age
Decoding a secret lore
For this errant druid page

The wizard necromancer
In a metaphysic trance
Warns this would-be sorcerer
To take a second glance
My telepathic hypnotist
Is well beyond advanced

He reveals that sweet Arcadia
Is below the River Styx
Though stunning sirens offer hope
And fallen angels kiss
I must cross the realms of Pluto
To reach Nirvana's bliss
