lyrics

[Sample: Conversation from the movie "Waking Life", with Roy Orbison - In Dreams also playing in the background]

Hey!
Hey
Are you a dreamer?
Yeah
Haven't seen too many of you around lately. Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming's dead, no one does it anymore. It's not dead it's just it's been forgotten. Removed from our language. Nobody teaches it so no one knows it exists. A dreamer's banished to obscurity. Well I'm trying to change all that and I hope you are, too. By dreaming. Everyday. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems it's ever faced, ever. So whatever you do, don't be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things have just started

[Intro: Fly Academic]
On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

[Pre-Hook: Fly Academic]
My friends don't get it man they think I should forget it
Say I'm living in the clouds
But if I ever dead it then I surely will regret it
And I can't let myself down

[Hook: Turquoise]
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on

[Post-Hook: Fly Academic and Turquoise]
So long farewell take care
Goodbye sleep tight goodnight
So long farewell take care
Goodbye sleep tight goodnight

[Verse 1: Fly Academic]
Another dreamer just a blip on the map
Slipped through the cracks doesn’t know the definitions of his limits or facts
Gifted he raps bout a world concerned ridiculous stacks
Lap of luxury so ugly they kiss so much ass
And they all tell him what he’s missing and lacks
Switch up his act he’s a gemini they splice him up and split him in half
But the spirit’ll never hear it he will stick to his path
Put the petal to the metal down shift and the gas
On the journey of his life and the mission’s intact
A catalog of masterpieces through the wisdom he spat
And he ain’t timid he’ll keep tipping til the critical mass
Until his vitals go flatline and the vision goes black

[Sample: The Notorious B.I.G. - Juicy]
It was all a dream
[Sample: Eminem - Sing For The Moment]
'cept for a dream and a fucking rap magazine
[Sample: Diego from the movie "Blow"]
Do you have a dream, George? You have a dream
[Sample: Common Sense - The 6th Sense]
I've seen street dreams deferred

[Pre-Hook: Fly Academic]
My friends don't get it man they think I should forget it
Say I'm living in the clouds
But if I ever dead it then I surely will regret it
And I can't let myself down

[Hook: Turquoise]
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on

[Post-Hook: Fly Academic and Turquoise]
So long farewell take care
Goodbye sleep tight goodnight
So long farewell take care
Goodbye sleep tight goodnight

[Verse 2: Fly Academic]
Another dreamer with the globe in his head
Strokes of his pen he’s a poet lets it flow when he’s holding the lead
So focused eventually he will be chosen again
To lead a new generation to the road to redemption
The shows and events as dope as it gets
He’s an artist his priorities are over the fence
Outside the box of just folding his bread
Pursuing blow and the sex he’s all heart keeps it close to the chest
But the game is so cold and the vets
Don’t think he’s golden he frets his only goal is that he hopes to impress
And the load on his shoulder’s like an ocean of sweat
The dream he owes to his debt that’s why he knows to invest

[Sample: The Notorious B.I.G. - Juicy]
It was all a dream
[Sample: Eminem - Sing For The Moment]
'cept for a dream and a fucking rap magazine
[Sample: Diego from the movie "Blow"]
Do you have a dream, George? You have a dream
[Sample: Common Sense - The 6th Sense]
I've seen street dreams deferred

[Pre-Hook: Fly Academic]
My friends don't get it man they think I should forget it
Say I'm living in the clouds
But if I ever dead it then I surely will regret it
And I can't let myself down

[Hook: Turquoise]
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on

[Bridge: Fly Academic and Turquoise]
Dream dream dream, dream dream
Dream dream dream, dream dream
(I'll keep) dream dream dream, (dreaming on)
(I'll keep) dream dream dream, (dreaming on)

[Hook: Turquoise]
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on
I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming I'll keep dreaming on

[Outro: Fly Academic and Turquoise]
On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

[Sample: End Scene from Wrestlemania XX]

The winner of this bout and new World Heavyweight Champion, Chris Benoit!
This sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden has erupted! Chris Benoit's 18-year odyssey has culminated by winning the World's Heavyweight title at Wrestlemania 20! Benoit, so many times, has been so close, year after year, mile after mile, continent after continent, but Benoit never gave up! He never gave up, and Benoit has done it! Benoit is living his dream! Finally, finally, by God finally! Chris Benoit has become the Heavyweight Champion of this world
