Irgendwo in der Tiefe gibt es ein Licht

[Bumped to support my neurotic sense of relevance]

These prints of our feet lead right up to the sea.

We long for just that something more.

A veil of diamond dust, just reach up and touch it.

   The sky's above our heads.

The sea's around our legs.

   We swim further and further.

We dive down.

     We dive down.

  A diamond night, a diamond sea, and a diamond sky...

  We dive deeper and deeper.

   Could be we are here.

Could be in a dream.

    It came up on the horizon.

Rising and rising...

  All the time it's a changing.

And all the dreamers are waking.
