Silent Lucidity


Silent Lucidity Lyrics

Hush now, don't you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
You're lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game of life

So here it is, another chance
Wide awake you face the day
Your dream is over... or has it just begun?

There's a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run through in the night

Relax child, you were there
But only didn't realize and you were scared
It's a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the years
And ride the whims of your mind
Commanding in another world
Suddenly you hear and see
This magic new dimension

(I)... will be watching over you
(I)... am gonna help you see it through
(I)... will protect you in the night
(I)... am smiling next to you, in Silent Lucidity


[Spoken word]
"Visualize your dream
Record it in the present tense
Put it into a permanent form
If you persist in your efforts
You can achieve dream control

Dream control
How's that then, better?
Hug me

If you open your mind for me
You won't rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within
Come tumbling down, and a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You're safe from pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly
A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize
Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...

(I)... will be watching over you
(I)... am gonna help you see it through
(I)... will protect you in the night
(I)... am smiling next to you

About “Silent Lucidity”


The single peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and it was nominated for the “Best Rock Song” at the 1992 Grammy Awards.

The song is interpreted as being based on the subject of lucid dreaming, mainly due to the spoken words during the middle of the song that deal with visualizing dreams.

The song was recorded with an orchestra that features not only in the background but is prominent in the second half of the instrumental section of the song.
