WHAT IS A DREAM?
IS IT A DREAM WHEN YOU ARE ASLEEP?
AND YOU IMGINE ALL THE THINGS
YOU WANT AND NEED
OR IS IT A DREAM WHEN YOU ARE AWAKE?
LIVING A REGRETFUL LIFE OF BAD DEEDS
I THINK YOU ARE DREAMING
WHEN YOUR EYES ARE OPEN
SEEING A WORLD OF VIOLENCE AND GREED
AND YOU LIVE YOUR REAL LIFE
WHEN YOUR EYES ARE CLOSED
WAITING FOR YOUR FLOWERED WORLD,
TO SPROUT ITS SEED.
SO IS IT REAL WHEN I TALK,
SEE, TASTE, SMELL, AND HEAR?
OR IS IT REAL WHEN MY EYES ARE CLOSED?
LIVING IN A WORLD WHERE THERE IS NO FEAR
IS IT REAL WHEN PEOPLE DIE,
CRY, LAUGH, AND CHEER
OR IS REAL WHEN MY EYES ARE CLOSED?
WHEN EVERYBODY IS ALIVE IN MY HEART
AND IS ALWAYS THERE.
SO AM I DREAMING EVERY STEP I TAKE?
EVERYDAY I AWAKE?
AM I DREAMING ALL THE SICKNESSES,
THE PAIN, ALL THE LOVE I GAINED?
AM I DREAMING THE FRIENDS,
THE FAMILIES, ALL THE ENEMIES?
AM I DREAMING THE ALCOHOL,
THE DRUGS, THE PLACE CALLED JAIL?
BECAUSE WHEN MY EYES ARE CLOSED
MY WORLD IS NOTHING LIKE THAT HELL.
SO IF IM DREAMING MY LIFE,
A WORLD THAT GIVES AND TAKES.
WHEN WILL I SEE REALITY?
WHEN WILL I AWAKE?
