Animal Farm 2 — Remixed

We are left with nothing, the dew which remains
Are enough for this animal farm
My body does not even have any crevice or folds
Where I can stay and hide alone

But why, I am always there for you!
Who are you?

I observe her shadow the reflection of her flesh
The infant-like darkness
That has no complain
The silence stops awhile like sleep

If rain can mesmerize that garden one day
O, the faithful, that garden, close your eyes
If it gets burnt out, die,
Still keep your eyes closed

Dreams won’t touch you, I know
Still when I wake up I shudder
Fearing the lethal touch of dreams
