"Dream Again" as written by Nicholas John Mccarthy, Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
Don't be afraid if you hear voices
Or feel the sweet air spoken upon you

Sometimes the sound of a thousand whispering words
Of hope will reassure
Show me the future

Will see us joined together
If the oceans fled or the mountains sigh
Then I will keep on dreaming

I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again

Don't be afraid if you're descending the deepest despair
Without a handrail to guide you
Sometimes the sound of a thousand whispering words
Can confuse

But when you're sleeping
They shift and slide together
Bring meaning to the canyon's cry

Oh, I...I keep on dreaming

I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again

Sometimes the sound of a thousand whispers
Are where you live a little fear
But feel the future

Well I feel us dream together
I feel no fear, I feel no fire
Oh, I...I keep on dreaming

I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream again
I live to dream

    General CommentCheck out this monologue from Caliban in Shakespeare's The Tempest Act three, Scene two.

    Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
    Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
    Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
    Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
    That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
    Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
    The clouds methought would open and show riches
    Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,
    I cried to dream again.

    Bam. Alex said on Twitter, when a fan pointed it out: "Well spotted. It was Nick's idea."

    General Commentgod, i love the line "Don't be afraid if you're descending the deepest despair, Without a handrail to guide you." so lovely.

    it's "bring meaning to the canyon's cry."

    My InterpretationFirst time i heard this I thought "wow, this is such a stoner song". But then I examined the lyrics ^.^

    Generally, I think this song is about staying strong and rational and preserving one's individuality in times of trouble. "I live to dream again"--that can be talking about either always living in order to dream and work for a better future (which goes with the staying strong thing). It could also be like "don't get despaired if life sucks, because you can stay strong in your dreams [the sleeping kind]". I like the first version better.

    General CommentI think that this song is about wake induced lucid dreams. Before you dream, you must go through the sleep paralysis, where you can hear loud noises and the whole thing is very terrifying. After sleep paralysis, you start lucid dreaming.
