"There is truth in dreams" is about the interplay between the conscious and subconscious minds. The conscious mind dwells on what the eyes see, whereas the subconscious mind is the true interpretation of the events in ones life. However, it tends to focus more on ones demons and the past; at night it brings to life what we refuse to admit to during the day.

Every day you deceive yourself,

And at night the truth avails.

The day has taken your body for granted.

You have done your best.

And at night,

All your demons reappear…

If only for eight hours.


At night,

Your conscious mind goes into a tired stupor,

And you subconscious wakes up.

The subconscious,

Where we keep our demons throughout the day.

Everything that frightens you,

Safely tucked in the farthest reaches of your mind.


You wake up at dawn.

Frightful, that they might follow you into the daylight.


Every morning you make peace with them,

And allow them to return at night,

Because in the clarity of things

There is the greatest deception.
