China dreams of India
tea dreams by candlelight
I dream of music tones
I'd never heard before I smoked the white.
She dreams of the babe they took
dreaming of a mindless mother
He dreams up a wordless book
as their dreams dry up beneath cloud cover.
Claim your fears, and they will surely fade away
To live your dreams, you'll find the demons in your way
Dreaming lives that never can be, never have been
Don't let that demon claim to be your friend.
'Cause once he's in, he'll never leave again
Misty-eyed and ashen-faced
starving spirits of the world
Chained to demons caked in red
a mockery of innocence long-sold
Too many lives not ever lived
cowering behind fear's power
Grace to those newly forgived
mercy to the children all gone sour
Dreaming lives or living dreams
A burdened choice, neither what it seems
Running scared to a painted nightmare where you don't exist
Or working hard to build a world more worthy of your gifts.
