"We Deal In Dreams" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
Don't you feel so very pointless
In the feelings of the rain
And the violence of the sun

I must confess that I feel graciously
Bigger than the rain
And hotter than the sun

What did you do, what do you say
When the blood spilled is of your loved one
And the Kremlins of the world fall around you

We deal in dreams, yeah
We deal in dreams
We deal in structures
That grow cold in our hearts

Oh fearful crying people
The fool is by the river
Watching, but not swimming

It takes energy not to get used to it
And fall into this place
Where everything runs together and dies

This quiet kingdom she is now
Forever will she be
In silent celebration

We deal in dreams, yeah
We deal in dreams
We deal in structures
That grow cold in our hearts, yeah

We deal in dreams
We deal in dreams
We deal in structures
That grow cold in our hearts, yeah

But we deal in dreams
Dreams, dreams
Structures that grow cold in our hearts, yeah

We deal in dreams
We deal in dreams
Structures that grow cold
Structures that grow cold
Structures that grow cold in our hearts, yeah

Don't you feel so very pointless
In the feelings of the rain
And the violence of the sun

    General CommentThey wrote this song (much more stripped down version) in the early nineties. It didn't make it on to one of the earlier albums, so 10 years later they dusted it off and remixed it. Sounds great.
    It might be about how social structures force us into particular ways of acting and living that may or may not be beneficial to us.

    General Commenti think its about how reality bites, and the way to solve it is to resolve in dreams.

    General CommentI think ElKarmaScaramouche is partly correct, but knowing the band's exploration of Krishnamurti philosophy (and indeed my own) I interpret it as an examination of how daily life wears us down and we take the things around us for granted. The message seems to be that we should instead be looking at the world around us in a different light and accepting its beauty and what it can offer us with questioning it.
