I dreamt I was an astronaut
safely orbiting the womb
I came across my wife and baby
already clinging to this singularity
dear wife, please forgive me
if I sometimes forget what
blessings I should be rejoicing
the prophet is a shipwrecked son
keeps waking up here
the kingdom still is a hoax
gotta build your own, son
I dreamt I was a firefighter
but the flames were never real
I dreamt I was an engineer
and I designed it, dear
the world's perfect treadmill
I dreamt I was a hypnotist
a farmer and an architect
a poet and an acrobat
I dreamt the flames were real
the prophet is a shipwrecked son
keeps waking up here
the kingdom still is a hoax
gotta build your own, son
I dreamt I was an astronaut.

    General CommentThe song-writers throws out a lot of bad lines in his songs, but, by means of the law of probability, he has some real killers, as seen in this song. "I dream I was a firefighter/but the flames were never real" -- if only he had more of those lyrics.
