"The Dream" as written by David Tolliver, James Ellis, Jeff Smith and Jeb Stuart Anderson....
You're too far away
Too far away to touch
And this mother's love inside me
Hurts too much

Prettily waving
Playing on the sand
Dreaming of everything
Dancing

Dancing in our hands
Dancing
Dancing

Dizzy dizzy dizzy
As I speak
Like a tumbling cat
I watch in fascination

Like a vampire bat
Don't do it don't do it
Don't do it don't do it
Don't give it away

We'll use it up tomorrow
If we don't use it today

Rest your head
Oh just put it outside
All wrapped up in ribbons
The night

The dream
The time love died

We pushed it in our mouths
Pushed it deep inside
All wrapped up in ribbons
The night

The dream
The time
Love died

    General CommentI don't think that there's to much to say about the meaning of this song. It's pretty obvious. But anyway, I'll write what's I think the meaning is-

    Rest your head \ I think he says to her "Don't let anything bother you right now when you're with me. Just clean your head - rest your head".
    Oh! just put it outside \ put everything that bothers you away-outside.
    All wrapped up in ribbons - I think he tells her that this perfect moment - this night, this dream, this time... and their love (that died) is wrapped up in ribbons.
    The night, The dream, The time love died \ this night, this time that they were together. that moment was like a dream, but then the love died.

    We pushed it in our mouths \ they didn't talk about it. They just kepd seeing each other like everything is okay, and nothing's wrong, but they both know that their love is dead.
    Pushed it deep inside
    All wrapped up in ribbons \ I already talked about the "Wrapped up in ribbons" above.
    The night
    The dream
    The time
    Love died \ And I think that in the end, their love is dead and they actually soped seeing each other, because they figured out that they can't be like this. it's not working when there's no love.


    Love this song.

    Last line ^ should be:
    Like the tumbling head

    I love the abstract lyrical style from this era. Several of the images from this b-side were recycled into later songs (eg. vampire bat in "Torture").
