"twbit 02: let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams" as written by and Matthew Fletcher Geert Van Der Velde....
Without pretension
With a sweet chill down my spine

For a time, the clouds lift, and what I have resigned to thinking barren
Does bear fruit

If I am to die, if I must die
I must inspire while I live
Alongside the dreamers

Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams

I surrender all, all I have to give

Those who have survived life's thorns
And provided escape
To those whose creations live forever
To those that wrote the words
Though my knees become weak
I will cause my foot another step
To carry the task
And to those that understood

There is a need for faith
And a need for hope

Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams

As with the brightest and the wisest
I know the need of faith, hope, and dreams

I burn for vision and inspiration, for this is life

If perchance I am dreaming
Please, let me sleep

To spend my time in great Atlantis
In search of Camelot
I drink from the grail, and war with the immortals
Rather than sulk in the ruins of a fallen sky castle

Amidst the remnants of once
Mighty colossus
Comes this call:
Where are the builders?

I clearly see the slayers, and the hope they destroy
I clearly see the thieves, and the wonders they deprive the inspired

Where are the builders?

If I am to die, if I must die
I must inspire while I live
Alongside the dreamers

    General Commentanyone else notice the
    "I surrender all. all I have to give"
    taken from the band Strongarm.
    very similar to Shai-Hulud... possibly better.
    they even shared a drummer.

    General Comment"To those that wrote the words,
    Though my knees become weak,
    I will cause my foot another step.
    To carry the task."

    That entire part is dedicated to Strongarm..."Though my knees become weak I will cause my foot another step to carry the task" is from Strongarm's song These Times That Try Men's Souls. Anyone who can appreciate Hulud will love Strongarm.

    General CommentIt's an ode to autonomous and original thinkers. Which, makes their use of another band's lyrics slightly ironic (perhaps intentional?). Well, I suppose that imitation is the greatest form of flattery...and it is a song dedicated to inspirational people.
