just close your eyes, open your head
set the inside of you full speed ahead
believe in your inner sense and all that you feel
because nothing's impossible and everything's real
don't stop dreaming, dream on
you've got to keep on keeping on
always believing
don't stop dreaming, dream on
you've got to keep on keeping on
always believing
floating up high, you can reach for the sky
set your pulse racing, heaven-embracing
sunshiny days, eachways and anyways
all your tomorrows, bye, bye yesterday
unwilling or willing you from the beginning to...
feel it cloaking you, tripping you
guiding you, calling you in
don't stop dreaming, dream on
you've got to keep on keeping on
always believing
don't stop dreaming, dream on...

    Dream-like in sound, in voice and in lyric. I can settle into this song like a cushion and feel its softness envelope me. It's almost hypnotic...... The song's lyrics, however, disturb me. As a fan of science fiction, the lyrics evoke in me the fantasy that this song is nothing more than an advert for a firm that specialises in virutal reality. The lyrics entice the listener to enter a "dreamlike" state where everyrthing is possible and available to experience. The song says to me "leave the hard reality of life behind, join with the experience we can give you, that of VR, where anything you wish for can be realised: that sets your pulse racing, is heaven embracing. VR will consume you whole, divorcing you from your past and providing for you, a new, positive sunshiny tomorrow for always". The chorus is a mantra "Don't stop dreaming, dream on....." that coaxes, teases the listener into giving themselves over to buying into a new reality, VR. It's the hookline in an advert that lingers in the brain after it's finished. Further, I imagine people buying into the firm's VR service. Opening their minds into corporate machines that construct this new, worry-free reality for them - just for as long as they can pay for it. Like alcohol or drugs, VR is mind altering but has a longer life than any ilicit substance. I can see rish people paying and those less fortunate and broke, slowly selling parts (to the company) of a body they will never use again, when they can stay in a reality they prefer. Watch this space for technology to catch up....... will this dream ever become a reality?
