IMRE LODBROG – Turkish Delight

I saw kings and queens and horses and fools
on a black & white board in a game with no rules
high heeled ladies dripping with jewels
and beggars a begging with an eye that drools
I saw scenes oh man i can hardly tell

some obscene and bizarre mixing heaven and hell
a cold silent spring a white masquerade
in the middle of June a Halloween parade
not one pink elephant in sight
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
I saw a pale frozen sun as from the outer space
saw jailers on the run not wearing a face
blazes a burnin’ the old mountain range
hurricanes blowing like a mind that’s deranged
I saw things oh man you wouldn’t believe
it’s crazy what a brain in sleep can conceive
anger and thunder black turning to fade
the future a swinging on the edge of a blade
in the yellowish sky no unicorns in flight
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
I saw Jesus bad tripping alongside Broadway
some tarot cards reader having nothing to say
but also i found as i passed my way
an orphan baby sparrow and that made my day
I saw a film oh man i just lack the words
and the screen was as large as the entire world
watchers a walking in a state of stupor
wondering what’s my acting and who’s the director
but no bonze in the air gliding on a kite
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
I saw thousands of planes dead stuck on the ground
such a blast in an harbor it exploded the town
broken wings broken hearts in the port of shadows
a rastaman playing Piaf singing la vie en rose
I saw a woman oh man who gave me an eye
saying we’ll meet again in the sweet bye and bye
i got lost on my way and forced to the ground
i got caught in a loop like in 4th time around
down the pit did i see any flickering light?
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
I saw lovers and friends who could not embrace
armies of zombies looking for solace
i heard echoes in time from the sweet golden age
of parsley and thyme rosemary and sage
I saw you oh man and you didn’t look great
petrified like you saw a demon at your gate
and while deciphering as a riddle your frown
i wondered could it mean the whole world’s upside down
and still no pink elephant in sight
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
With some hopes and illusions tight clenched in my fist
i wandered along the old route 66
but trying to express all that i missed
it’s trying to grab a ghost in the mist
And i ain’t superstitious but i sure did see
a black cat in the night with eyes glaring at me
what i saw my friend was beyond belief
and i hoped that the morning would bring some relief
but alas alas what is life but a dream
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
And for sure not pink elephant in flight
In the dream i had last night
And the ones that i love i held them so tight
In the dream i had last night
And i enjoyed the past as a Turkish delight
In the dream i had last night
In the dream i had last night
