"Dream"
Written by Antonio Rosario
Performed by Orikal Uno
2012

I had a dream that we were kickin' it the other day
Talkin' bout life, and the fight to live another way
an upgrade, from the headaches caused by the strugglin'
you told me every human being has something they struggle with
...it's all relative, consider you a relative
bloodline or not, never thought that it was relevant
We were by a lake, underneath the sunshine
Listenin' to Sublime, talkin' bout that one time
We had many, and they've never erased
Within the old film projector of my memory banks
The clouds were floatin' by, the time paused
jokin' bout your downfalls, makin' fun of my flaws
We all got em... nobody's perfect
We're all rodeo clowns in this short circuit circus
I had a dream that we were kickin it the other day
But if I saw you now, don't even know what I would say...

like,
how've you been?
what have you learned?
you haven't left this earth
as far as i'm concerned
how've you been?
what have you learned?
you haven't left this earth
as far as i'm concerned

I had a dream that we were kickin' it the other day
Talkin' bout life, and the fight to live another way
I told you that I wanna quit chasin' my dreams
you told me that success, really ain't what it seems
we had our ups and downs, it didn't really matter
I came to the conclusion we all end on different chapters
We were by a lake, underneath the sunshine
Listenin' to Sublime, talkin' bout that one time
We had many, and they've never erased
Within the old film projector of my memory banks
The squirrels were runnin' by, birds chirpin' flyin' high
discussions about life... and what it's like to die
Perfect weather in a setting that stood still
Just chillin' with my friend, in a time that I could still
I had a dream that we were kickin it the other day
But if I saw you now, don't even know what I would say...

like,
how've you been?
what have you learned?
you haven't left this earth
as far as i'm concerned
how've you been?
what have you learned?
you haven't left this earth
as far as i'm concerned
