“Toward Lower Craziness”
Awaken, you travel rapidly away. Of all time I exist in the day. In sleep I travel by great images where my desires guide me. I come not obtaining my goals, but believing in this: Everything is in my head. I try to come to see my path, but the images cause the path to darken and direct me to darkness. For that brings me to this conclusion: My guide is only a fearful thing that rests inside my head, belonging to all darkness.
