ANCIENT SPIRIT DREAM WARS

Poem by: Raine Carosin

Summary

Everybody seems to get hooked by the word "freedom" and think that it's being denied to them, but on closer inspection, it's a privilege that has to be worked for. I explored the religious aspect one night and when I couldn't sleep for all the thoughts running around my head, I wrote these lyrics and put a melody to it and recorded it. Hope you enjoy. Comments most welcome.

IN A DREAM I WALKED THIS LAND
THOUSANDS OF YEARS FROM NOW
THE ANCIENT SPIRIT WHO RULED THE SAND
HAD LOST HIS FIERCEST SCOWL
 
NO ROADS, NO RULES, NO PIPES, NO HOLES
NO BRICKS, NO POWER, NO SCRAPERS, NO POLES
NO BORDERS, NO FENCES, NO PAPER, NO BOOKS
NO BULLETS FOR GUNS, NO GLASSES FOR LOOKS
 
HIS SONS AND HIS DAUGHTERS ALL WANDERED FREE
FROM LAKE, TO RIVER, FROM MOUNTAIN, TO SEA
HE’D FOUGHT FOR HIS DREAM OF FREEDOM
FROM YOU AND FROM ME
 
FOR NOW I WALK ON POLISHED WOOD
AND WOULD SLEEP & DREAM IF I COULD
BUT I SEE THE WAR BETWEEN THE DREAMS
AND HAVE TO WRITE NO MATTER HOW CRAZY IT SEEMS
 
I LOVE MY COFFEES, I LOVE MY TEAS
I’D LOVE TO DO WHATEVER I PLEASE
TO ENJOY THIS LAND
AND OVER THE SEAS
 
BUT ‘PLANES MUST LAND ON MORTAR & TAR
AND I MUST WORK HARD TO BE A STAR
TO HAVE THE THINGS THAT MAKE MY STAY
ON EARTH A BRIGHT & BETTER DAY
 
THE ANSWER I GET IS AN ECHO YET
OF THE DREAM I SAW JUST NOW
THE ANCIENT SPIRIT WHO RULES THIS LAND
IS WEARING HIS FIERCEST SCOWL
 
I WALK THE FLOOR WITH ANCIENT FEET
I SEE THE LAMB, I HEAR THE BLEAT
I FEAR THE DAWN WON’T COME MY WAY
BUT THEN GOD CREATES A BRAND NEW DAY
