Left at the roadside with this rapidly burning map
like a magician with no rabbits in his hat
Line up the measures to fulfill your brothers dreams
across the land we pay in sweat, keepin' up the steam

Now you tell me that you can't afford the dreaming
but I know it's just a lie!
Serious dreamers always can afford the dreaming
and you know we're aiming high

Put on your makeup, put on your dancing shoes
into the wasteland we've all seen you
dance away the blues
No time for introversions no more time to play
Serious distractions always seem to come your way

Now you tell me that you can't afford the dreaming
but I know it's just a lie!
Serious dreamers always can afford the dreaming
and you know we're aiming high

From the nest we descend in a mist,
all like birds on thin ice
From the kingdoms of childhood we dream on
and turn to the wise
And the code that was written in blood & flesh
in an ancient time
From the kingdom of heaven
the ships of dreams were sent to enlighten YOU.

Playground Pirates gaze at the Sun
far out sisters and flying Nun
Poor Picasso gaze at the art
Ahead of time means a Lonely heart

War is over, boys are home
move into the friendly zone
Dream at Diners, dying slowly
where hungry hearts grows cold and lonely

From the nest we descend in a mist,
all like birds on thin ice
From the kingdoms of childhood we dream on
and turn to the wise
And the code that was written in blood & flesh
in an ancient time
From the kingdom of heaven
the ships of dreams were sent to enlighten YOU.
