"Wildest Dreams" as written by Nisan C. Stewart, Michael Carlos Jones, Jack Knight and Adonis Shropshire....
They decorated all the generals
Who fought the war behind the lines
They had forgotten all the soldiers
The brandy puts them way behind the times
Insanity has found its way to TV screens
Vision seems impossible to me
They fight for king and country
I never would have thought this in my

Wildest dreams, wildest dreams
Wildest dreams, wildest dreams

Evening comes, we sit and watch the features
Clips and rushes come from who knows where
From Washington across to California
The fighting breaking out in Leicester Square
We see the soldiers moving on to victory
And children trampled under marching feet
They fight for king and country
How many millions will they put to sleep?

Wildest dreams, wildest dreams
Wildest dreams, wildest dreams
Fly away

No, not in this world
No, not in the next
No, not in my wildest dreams

They recommended you to leisure
For non-conformers anywhere
Some men's dreams for others turn to nightmares
This never would have happened in their

Wildest dreams, wildest dreams
Wildest dreams, wildest dreams
Fly away

No, not in this world
No, not in the next
No, not in my wildest dreams

    General CommentI saw them in a parking lot in MD. They were opening for Yes. Both have fallen quite a bit. Yes needs to retire or at least bring Anderson back.

    General CommentAlright, the song seems to refer to Falklands War. "They fight for king and country", so it's about British soldiers. This war was big victory for UK, but also big tragedy for many people who suffered from it. Generals, admirals, politicians had their victory, they got their medals, but forgot of those who really fought this war, and for whom that was tragedy too. The soldiers now try to forget what they went through and what they did. Now Asia are afraid that this victory, combined with forgeting about the price of it, will result with increasing popularity of militarism, which may lead to totalitarianism repressing all who disagree with that. I understand that all. Though I'm not talking about if I agree or disagree with lyrics, anyway I understand. BUT what's America doing there?!
