From the recording Count. Me. In.
There has been a realization that we are stuck in the Dream of the Modern World. The first step is waking up. Then we can build the world we want to come.
Wake the Dreamer
Am G-D Am G-D
Wake the Dreamer, Wake the Dreamer
They are counting on you
Am G-D- E- E7 Am
To be a Sleeper. Oh, Wake the Dreamer.
They say use up this year’s model, And then just throw it away.
Now we know there’s a hidden cost. They profit from hiding a better way.
The Dream says stronger is better, like boys playing King of the Hill.
Like destiny is domination. Bend all life to your will.
The first step is letting in the pain of the world. Go ahead and let yourself cry.
How many times can someone look away and pretend they have no eyes?
The next step is turning off the movie we’re in, Where the wealthy deserve what they get.
And the men are always the heroes. First destruction then a nice sunset.
I know it can feel like there’s nothing left, but that’s where possibility starts.
All life is one big community. We all return to the same heart.
There are places where wisdom still survives untouched by factories.
We can learn to help each other and change the course of history.
