Strip by: Viatrix

Delkin: Mister Sandman / bring me a dream / Make it the one where / the couches all scream / Where my perfume / turns into a pigeon / Where all geometry is non-Euclidian
Ambrose: Sandman / Dreams are so strange / They're weird idea streams / made in our brains / Science has yet to explain / what this body function maintains
Samantha: Mister Sandman / bring me a dream / Make it about that guy. Over there. To my requests / you have been resistant / One might assume that you are nonexistent
Meridien: Sandman / what does it mean‽ / The symbolism / inside of my dream / Help me find what I've forseen / Tell me so I can intervene
Holly: Mister Sandman / man me a sand! / Make it the cutest / man car door hook hand!
{Oliver looks confusedly at the previous panels.}
Oliver {singing the correct lyrics}: …please turn on your magic beam / Mister Sandman, bring me a dream.

The author writes:

Mister Sandman.

I already had most of the first four panels' lyrics floating around in my brain before I realized I could fit them to Lightning Made of Owls characters.

Samantha's earrings are sand timers, because sand.

When Delkin is awake, he always makes sure to respect scent-free zones and Euclidian geometry. :p
