A young boy
Playing all alone
In an imaginary world
In his father's home

He escaped from family
Hid from terrifying life
His imaginary world
Sheltered him from his strife

Then he grew
Was forced out all alone
But he never forgot
His imaginary home

And while all around him
Was pain and stress
His imaginary world
Seemed by far the best

So he closed his eyes
Sang in a voice so clear
His imaginary world
Began to appear
He sang so clear
This world alive
And the boy stepped in
Where he finally could survive

And they made him a king
Put a crown on his head
"You sang us this world
That we love!" they all said
"I don't want to be king
Just to sing and create!"
"Long live the king
Well, isn't he great?"

And as years flew by
He was loved on his throne
Though to tell you the truth
He longed to be alone
"As long as you sit in the throne
You can stay"
So the terrified boy
Was forced to obey

So he closed his eyes
Sang in a voice so clear
His imaginary world
Began to appear
He sang so clear
This world alive
And the boy stepped in
Where he finally could survive

"But I'm tired, and lonely
And so very afraid
And the kingdom seems angry
Yet he still feared to trade
He had a fair queen
Loyal, pure and true
"Perhaps we should leave"
"Where you go I'll go too"

"But you never have seen
The horrors of my land
All the people are slaves
And they live lives so bland
So they dreamed of escape
But there was no place to go
And they shivered, and cowered
And prepared for his next show

So he closed his eyes
Sang in a voice so clear
His imaginary world
Began to appear
He sang so clear
This world alive
And the boy stepped in
Where he finally could survive
