Imagine all the people
Great men would say
They guess imagine it wasn’t good enough
For hate for them instead
Now I can try to get my point across to you
But it’s gonna take a better voice to listen to
Than a hundred men
And a thousand boys
But all as one here to call

Close your eyes
For once
Think of each other
Reach out
We’ve been here forever
I’m alive
I’ve been dreaming on again
Dream with me

She sits alone on an old wooden porch
Her heart cries out and fills with remorse
The breaking news of burning giants
We’re at the mercy of invisible tyrants
He takes his steps into the gates of hell
Now in the boundaries of kill or be killed
Shaking now with the horror he’s facing
Good men gone mad cuz they train to be crazy

Close your eyes
For once
Think of each other
Reach out
We’ve been forever
I’m alive
I’ve been dreaming on again
Dream with me

Before so long
Now all good has come
You lost the battle
And you thought you won
So I’m down on my knees
And this misery

Close your eyes
For once
Think of each other
Reach out
We’ve been here forever
I’ve been dreaming on again

Close your eyes

    General CommentI'm not positive about these lyrics, especially the beginning, so if anything's wrong, just tell me, and I'll edit.

    I think the meaning of this song is pretty obvious, and the chorus definitely helps clarify. Basically, think of others not just yourself and help others. We've had so much time on earth and yet so many of others never do reach out to others. She's been dreaming of that happening. And also, there's that one verse with bad parts of life in it, the things we need to try to fix.

    Anyway, great song. You can listen to it on curiousculture.com/Members/Music/…

    My InterpretationIt's about the twin towers. Her brother went to help, but she couldn't go with him, so she's imagining what the people would be feeling and what it would look like seen as she couldn't go there
