Then with the eyes shut, looking thought the rust and rot
A small spot of light floods the floor
And pours over the rusted world of pretend
The eyes ease open and its dark again
Analyzing a dream, looking through the rust and rot and dust may mean going through a nightmare. A small spot of light could be the sign of waking up, as it “pours over the world of pretend” The eyes ease open probably refers to waking up.
