Dreamer

Location

Dream, dream, dream, I wanna be a dreamer

Keep, keep, keep on stitchin up the seams so

I wanna say goodbye, I never got the chance

Tell me it’s alright, and I’ll stand here and dance

What, what, what can I do to replenish

My faith, faith, faith, cause it is just finished

Give me the strength, I’ve got to go

Get up, get ready, put on the show.

 

I used to be a dreamer, I had wished upon the stars

That I’d travel the distance, wherever they are

I’d pass the test of life, and all I’d have to show them

Was I ain’t givin’ up, that away I’d go to blow them.

Tell me, what does it mean to really be a player?

You have a game to make, you have a score to say that

You must be willin’, or at least somewhat tryin

Not to fake it out, not to be lyin.

I’d tried so hard, to do my part

But now all I see is these reminiscent scars

I feel the pain, and I thought I had toldja

That soon I’ll quit it, that I’ll go sober.

But the fury lasts, passion will never die

However I tried, I will never cry

Because I had a dream, and I dig like a beaver

I’m trying to find myself, trying to be a dreamer.

 

Dream, dream, dream, I wanna be a dreamer

Keep, keep, keep on stitchin up the seams so

I wanna say goodbye, I never got the chance

Tell me it’s alright, and I’ll stand here and dance

What, what, what can I do to replenish

My faith, faith, faith, cause it is just finished

Give me the strength, I’ve got to go

Get up, get ready, put on the show.

 

I’m always saying its good to have fun

Playing outside, underneath the sun

But life’s a joke, you wanna know the punchline?

I can tell you what, that I have already resigned.

But hey, what’d they say about another way, a second chance?

You wanna sing, well I’ll go and freakin’ dance

Cause you got some skill, well you should apply it.

And not be so goddamn nearsighted.

I feel the energy pulsing through my veins

The power has risen, and it’s just insane

Revenge and redemption, that’s what I’m here for

To fight for what’s right, I’ll run over you like a steel boar.

I came down running, and I hit the ground

See the world through my eyes, and like it and I pound

I saw the reason that I was meant to be a believer

Cause in the end, I was meant to be a dreamer.

 

Dream, dream, dream, I wanna be a dreamer

Keep, keep, keep on stitchin up the seams so

I wanna say goodbye, I never got the chance

Tell me it’s alright, and I’ll stand here and dance

What, what, what can I do to replenish

My faith, faith, faith, cause it is just finished

Give me the strength, I’ve got to go

Get up, get ready, put on the show.

 

What is a dreamer, one who dreams?

But what the hell does that even mean?

It’s kinda got to do with the fact that I’ve got notoriety

That I’ll be someone someday, change this society.

I fight to the end, death to the punch,

I eat those fools for breakfast and lunch

But dinner, you ask? Well let’s just say,

Dreamers gonna dream, and hater’s gonna hate.

You make fun, well I make serious

You think it’s funny, but it’s not that hilarious

Cause inside, that kid’s full of light

But he’s not scared, he’s willin to fight.

I have a dream, a man once said,

That my people could roam free, even though the past has bled,

And he, well let’s just say he was a dreamer

And success or failure, he kept being a believer.

 

Dream, dream, dream, I wanna be a dreamer

Keep, keep, keep on stitchin up the seams so

I wanna say goodbye, I never got the chance

Tell me it’s alright, and I’ll stand here and dance

What, what, what can I do to replenish

My faith, faith, faith, cause it is just finished

Give me the strength, I’ve got to go

Get up, get ready, put on the show.

 

People round the world, they will hate

But you gotta have the will to say hey,

I don’t care if you no like,

Cause frankly, I’m not gonna fight.

Lay down the weapons, fight with words,

Be another Gandhi, he flew like a bird.

So be the same, and don’t talk trash

Speak the truth, and with your might you will bash

Any foe who dares to fight

You will destroy, and you will smite.

So live up to it, don’t go down, and for sake don’t die

Get the heck up and look Evil in the eye.

I’ve got one last thing to say,

Don’t be possessed with the badness of hate,

Don’t be induced, and well no schemer,

Follow your heart, and you’ll be a dreamer.
