A LUNATIC HAS AN IDEA, by            
First Line: I'll gather all my dreams
Last Line: To do the same to me!
Subject(s): Fools; Idiots

I'll gather all my dreams,
And gather all my tears;
Collect my silly laughter,
Collect my foolish fears,
And take them to a sailor,
And beg of him to drown
My dreams, tears, fears, and laughter
When night has settled down.
And after all my dreams,
And after all my tears,
And after all my laughter,
And all my gripping fears
Have strangled in the sea,
I'll beg my friend, the sailor,
To do the same to me!
