Perfect place vs. Reality

"Imagine a place you can always escape to
An island off the coast of nowhere
A new destination of your own creation

Just waiting till you choose to go there"

Well, if there is a place like that, it is in our minds. The place where we can lock up ourselves and run away from reality, because reality sometimes it's hard and confusing. Having a place of our own it's good.

"This is a place where your mind can escape
All the problems today and go far, far away

This is a time with no history
Welcome to mystery"

A place where there's no problem? That's definitely not a real place, neither a place inside our minds, because in there we can't steal away from our problems, they are everywhere in there.

"Imagine a city where everything's pretty
And you sir, you rule the kingdom
You call the shots you can do what you want to

Oh just imagine the freedom"

Rule things? Hum, very tempting, but we barely can rule our own lives, we're always looking for help. Rule a place would bring twice as much problem, which we wouldn't be able to deal with.

"Imagine a room where the flowers they bloom
Through the cracks in the floor and the ceiling

Just you and the missus and roses and kisses
My, what a wonderful feeling"

Now I can say for sure where this place is: in our dreams. Inside of our minds, but in the unconscious. We can reach this place, but we can't live there forever.
Although reality is hard, it is where we belong.

"Welcome to mystery"

Real world is a mystery.
