Dream Within A Dream

Standing by the window
watching a green star
Thinking about the immediate future
smoking a final cigar

The autopilot is running the ship
I turn off the light
and go to bed for 27 years
that will feel like one night

Close my eyes
Fall asleep
Feeling strange
Into the deep

All of a sudden, we're under attack
My daughter is aiming at me
I wake up, jump into my car
and watch a little TV

Hold on a second, what's going on?!
I don't have any kids or a wife!
I was on a trip to another planet
I don't recognize this life

My first time
In a cryo-bed
No side-effects
So they said
Dream within a dream
inside my head
it's so extreme
the things I've seen
How could it be
but a dream within a dream?
