"Dreams" as written by and R. Shad....
We think till we're emotional
Then drink till we're sociable again.
This whole century is sensory overload.
Stay the night.
Roam the globe.
We go from low
To overdose,
Back to comatose --
Brightest lights;
Coldest roads.
My generation's a rose
That's grown from concrete
Rubble under a broken home
In a busy city, where we've never felt
So alone.

Let's get out of here, baby,
Barry Bonds.
I know we've both got baggage,
I hope they're carry-ons.
Same age as Pops when he married Mom's
Pipe dreams;
Cherry bombs --
Blow up,
Gone.

Grow up,
Achieve,
Succeed.
You know that you've arrived
When you've always gotta leave,
And you're up all night
'Cause you're living all your dreams.

The fantasy:
A black room,
One mirror.
The man I see
In the side of the vanity
Can't believe
That he can't believe
Anymore in any force stronger than a
Bombshell blonde that's twenty-four.
The room had many doors --
How to choose?
He said the echo in the space
Made him sound confused.
Then the mirrors all around,
Hundred-thousand views,
Became a thousand faces in a now-crowded room.
Loud music all around him,
Booze, and the sound of youth.
Gotta dance 'cause they only know
How to move.
