I close my eyes, so I can't see,
What reality sets in front of me.
I close my eyes to changing season,
With blind belief I block out reason.
I close my eyes, I close my mind,
Leaving all that's real behind.
I believe in Heaven, I believe in Hell,
As nothing else suits me so well.
Nice dreams are held and so are dear,
I shall always hold my dream world near.
I close my eyes to things unkind,
I outwardly see, but inside stay blind.
I stay asleep while I'm awake,
So what I don't like I soon forsake.
Of things quite real I can ignore,
I still praise the Roman Whore.
I close my eyes, I close my ears,
What I don't know will cause no tears.
