Contains rearranged verses from Edgar Allan Poe's poem A Dream Within A Dream and B. E. I. Danby's The Lemon Seed.

lyrics

If I was to swallow the lemon seed
Would there grow inside of me
The bitter tree
Roots travel deep within the deep
Bruised black and green
Fades into sleep

With every second ticking by
It makes no sense here as I lie
Alive to the deep
But dead to the world
Was the tree that was once a girl
There's such fragility

There's such a fine line
Between real life and fantasy
Is this what it seems
Is this life a dream
Is this life a dream

If I was to swim into the sea
Would you follow me
Beyond the shore
Amid the misty furore
Like the grains of sand
Falling from my hand
All lost at sea
There's such fragility
There's such a fine line between real life and fantasy
Is this what it seems

Such a fine line between real life and fantasy
Is this life a dream
There's such fragility
Is this life a dream

Is this
Is this a dream
Is this life
A dream
Is this life
A dream
Is this
Is this a dream
Is this
Is this a dream
Do the androids only dream of electric sheep?
