Feel the pull
More sunshine
So profound
Feeling fine
Edify me
Do you fear you?
Are you free?

How am I supposed to know
Is where I'm planted good to sow?

I step outside to bold alarms
I breathe in air that borders red
I dream I'm in Grandmother's arms
I'm dreaming that the dream ain't dead
(Dream ain't dead)

I look at crumbling pillars:
How do I avoid this?
So many orbits 'round the suns of others
These unsung talents sung by mothers
And souls ascend because of colour

'Lost more lives beyond my own
Let's be real, we die alone

I wake up fighting for that little light
I see through lies inside my head
I saunter through this morning fog
Daydreaming that the dream ain't dead

And it's hard, to admit when you are failing;
to admit that night ship sailing represents your part
Hardened, as I'm gifted words of wisdom;
Like an aphoristic biscuit that I'll sure discard

I make the pledge to see this through
I vow to see it to the end
I know that we are not alone
In dreaming --
In knowing that the dream ain't dead
There's life and laughter I've misread

Bloom where you are planted,
Sow seeds of joy
