Dreaming of a world where humans are another kind of beings, with no wars and no need for hate and greed. A world where children can fix the mistakes of the elders and the elders leave the children alone.
Waking up in the day by day of an average person, confronting reality after such dream is not always easy. One must realize that dreams can be helpful as motivators in life. But instead they often make us sad longing for what we don’t have.

 

 

EVERY NOW AND THEN SHE HAS THIS DREAM

A DREAM WHERE LAND IS ALWAYS GREEN

HUMBLENESS A COMMON THEME IN DREAMLAND

AND IN THE DREAM SHE IS A MAN

WHO WALKS THE LAND AND HAS NO NEED

THERE’S NO PLACE FOR HATE AND GREED

RESPECT FOR ALL THAT LIVES AND BREATHS IN DREAMLAND

IN THE DREAM THE CHILDREN PLAY

THEY ARE ALLOWED TO MAKE MISTAKES

THEY ARE A DIFFERENT KIND OF BEING

THE HUMANS THAT SHE HAS SEEN IN DREAMLAND

 

SHE WAKES UP FROM HER DREAM

LIES IN BED CONFRONTED BY (HER) REALITY

NO TIME TO CONTEMPLATE

PUTS ON HER FACE AND WALKS INTO HER HELL AGAIN

THE EMPTY FACES ON THE TRAIN

REMIND HER WHY SHE HATES THIS PLACE

GROWING BITTER IN HER CIRCUMSTANCE

LONGING TO FALL ASLEEP AND DANCE AGAIN IN DREAMLAND

 

SHE CAN MAKE IT REAL AND TO REALIZE: DREAMLAND

 

STEALING MOMENTS IN THE DAY

DREAMING ABOUT A WAY THAT SHE CAN KEEP IT REAL

CAN A SMALL COG IN THE WHEEL

HELP THIS WORLD TO HEAL AND TO REALIZE DREAMLAND

FANTASIES CAN MEND AND LIFT THE SOUL

CAN SHE BRING HER DREAMS INTO THIS WORLD

HER DREAMLAND
