Many Dreams

They told us we could rule world

And we dreamt in swirls of gold

They told us all we could learn

And we did what we were told

.

Dreams of fulfilling dreams

Wishes to fulfill all that we gleaned

.

.

Not everybody's dreams come true

Life cares not for your plans

Your wants and needs differ slightly

So what's to do?

Work hard, pull your strength, and perspire

Bleed to the bone, tired and uninspired

.

.

Years later we were on our own

No one had our backs

Listening to what we'd been told

Forgetting solid facts

.

Clich├ęs of dreams coming true

Of Disney endings too

.

.

Not everybody's dreams come true

Life cares not for your plans

Your wants and needs differ slightly

So what's to do?

Work hard, pull your strength, and perspire

Bleed to the bone, tired and uninspired

.

.

Prince Charming one night failed to come

And Romeo was off-duty

That night my dreams were of burnt out suns

The gold had lost its sheen

.

Lost and bitter dreams

Nightmares are all I see

.

.

Not everybody's dreams come true

Life cares not for your plans

Your wants and needs differ slightly

So what's to do?

Work hard, pull your strength, and perspire

Bleed to the bone, tired and uninspired
