Nightwish – Storytime lyrics

It was the night before,
When all through the world,
No words, no dreams
Then one day,
A writer by a fire
Imagined all Gaia
Took a journey into a child-man's heart

A painter on the shore
Imagined all the world
Within the snowflake on his palm
Unframed by poetry,
A canvas of awe
Planet Earth falling back in to the stars

I am the voice of Never-Never-Land
The innocence, the dreams of every man
I am the empty crib of Peter Pan
A silent kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real
Every memory that you hold dear

I am the journey,
I am the destination
I am the home
The tale that reads you
Away to taste the night
The elusive high
Follow the madness
Alice, you know once did

Imaginarium, a dream emporium
Caress the tales
And they will dream you real
A storyteller's game
Lips that intoxicate
The core of all life is a
Limitless chest of tales

I am the voice of Never-Never-Land
The innocence, the dreams of every man
I am the empty Queen of Peter Pan
A silent kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real
Every memory that you hold dear

I am the voice of Never-Never-Land
The innocence, the dreams of every man
Searching heavens for another Earth

    "empty grave" makes more sense than "empty crib," given the context of the song. The character of peter pan represents endless childlike wonder and imagination, which is essentially what fuels the creative endeavors of any writer, painter, or poet weaving escapist tales. The song is all about the imagination and the creative spirit, so saying "i am the empty grave of peter pan" is essentially saying that even as adults, the imaginations of storytellers never died. "empty crib" or "empty cradle," on the other hand, would suggest that peter pan went off and grew up, which would imply very much the opposite.
