"Return to Fantasy" as written by and Ken ...
Searching every day
Looking every way
Trying to make a connection
To find a piece of the action
Like a hungry poet
Who doesn't know
He is close to perfection
Choice is the question

Moonlight night
After moonlight night
Side by side
They will see us ride
But if they cared to look
Then they would see
It's our return to fantasy
Fantasy, fantasy

Can you understand
That in every man
There's a need to unwind
That's never been defined
Somewhere deep within
There's another being
You are somehow abusing
By the person you're using

Moonlight night
After moonlight night
Side by side
They will see us ride
But if they cared to look
Then they would see
It's just our return to fantasy
Fantasy, fantasy

Traveling faster than lightening
Closer than ever before
We can go on for you
And take you nearer to
The legend of mystery
From the beginning of time
Dreaming time dreaming
We can return to
The land of the good and the kind
Time dreaming time dreaming
Why don't you come to our party
And open your minds

In another place
There's a newer face
Like an unfinished painting
Your creator is waiting
The brush and pen describe
What it is inside
That will set your mind thinking
While the others are sinking

    General CommentWonderful song again. I love this thing - it's not a return to reality, but a return to fantasy. After you've lost your life in fantasies and you've started living in reality, there always should be a time when you return to fantasy. No matter if others don't care to look.

    General CommentI am going to post what the song means to me. Not the meaning intended, if my interpretation is what the song is about, then it's a conincidence.

    To me, Return To Fantasy is about how humans aren't perfect but are trying to be, but don't know that their ascension to the afterlife or heaven will grant them perfection (Like a hungry poet who doesn't know he is close to perfection). The Return To Fantasy part can come from how the afterlife is something that we don't know much about, it's a fantasy fueled by belief.
    "We can return to the land of the good and the kind", going to heaven where everything is perfect and the inhabitants are god and kind people.

    "Travelling faster than lightning, closer than ever before" can be how they're ascending, they're closer than they've ever been to the afterlife and it's secrets.

    I know there is more to it, but I've laid down the essentials.

    General CommentThe meaning to me is basically "I never want to 'grow up'"

    Even if you're a rational mind like me, it doesn't mean you can't have fun letting your imagination run wild.
