Euphoric Synopsis (Song titles are in bold)
The never-ending conversation between the dreamer and his dreamed counterpart is a vicious circle where being Free To Be Lost is the only way to find the exit from this virtual labyrinth. When he discovers that each dream could be the last battle of his life, the dreamer must keep Hunting for the opportunity to face the petty tyrant (Tiranito) who subjugates him in his dreams. Conscious of being fragile and Ephemeral, he realises that someone is dreaming through him. This idea creates a short circuit in his brain making him feel sick and angry. This lairy (Belicoso) state prevents him from seeing what he really needs in order to reach (Alcanzar) a point where he can begin to control his dreams. When he sees a girl being attacked by strange lightning and fireballs, he feels as if he’s dreaming of someone playing a video game inside of his own dream. He understands that she’s a dreamer, just like him, facing a Trial to make a choice: to quit or restart the game. This makes him wonder if the real dreamer is his Other Self. Like Mafalda, the girl in his dreams continues to talk, so all The Odds of understanding what’s really happening to him seem to disappear. She’s talking about a kind of human POP(urrí) that never gets discouraged, but he still doesn’t understand until a Euphoric encounter with the unknown appears to him, like an Orange Blast.
