Dream A Future -- June 23, 2021

Song lyrics combine a political commentary with a personal reflection. Musically, the song is a simple progression layered up with multiple voicings (I.E. audio tracks).

The commentary portion of the lyrics refers to the frightening attack on Democracy. Broadcast news is now limited to 3-4 stories over a 24 hour period. At the same time, independent news outlets are being censored. A recipe for disaster.

The personal reflection is also about narratives and limits.

Woke up cold in the summer night
Each moment plays on an empty time

[ Chorus ]
Baby Baby won't you stay for a while
Theres a future in your dream tonight
I've been waiting for a time say

Near the border, over what's allowed
She spoke a message, she wove into cloth

[ Chorus ]

A word breaks through their narrow lines
Just a moment, when you lost your head

[ Chorus ]

Every time I have to look around
The silent shadow scream out loud

[ Chorus ]
