I'm known to be a dreamer,
It's my way of sanctuary
but surrounded by closed minds,
Made me less a believer
I am a dreamer, but darkness shrouds me
Storms my mind until my memory
Is washed away
With broken fragments remain,
Darkness covers my eyes
So I cannot see,
I may be a dreamer
But the nightmare is me
A bullet to the head
Is how I blew my mind
Releasing all the evil
Out on a few lines
Confused with entities
Attacked by serenity
A war with myself
Heaven versus hell
I may be a dreamer,
Because I wanna see better
But I'm not a believer
So happiness sends a good bye letter
At the backs of these ropes
Drugs and alcohol may cope
I may be high in clouds
But I am not no dope
I am a dreamer,
And it is time to act
Wash away all this crap
Just to get my soul back
For finding peace within
Is where happiness begins
I am a dreamer
This war I WILL WIN
Never give up never let up
Never bow down never surrender
I AM A DREAMER
Me and myself together
NO MATTER HOW HARD
THINGS GET FROM END OR START
I am a dreamer,
I will fight with my heart
