Song Lyric Sunday (6/24/18) – Dream

Helens prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is the word dream. It’s kind of odd that she chose that word for this week’s prompt. Earlier in the week I was telling someone very dear to me that I would love to post a particular song if Helen ever prompted for dreams. And see what Helen did….

My selection for this week’s prompt is from a 90’s progressive metal band whose lead singer has an amazing range. This song is about taking hold of one’s dreams and learning to master them.

Here is the song Silent Lucidity by Queensryche.

Hush now don’t you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

You’re lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game
Of life

So here it is, another chance
Wide awake, you face the day
Your dream is over…

Or has it just begun?

There’s a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run through in the night

Relax child, you were there
But only didn’t realize
And you were scared

It’s a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the years
And ride the whims of your mind

Commanding in another world
Suddenly, you’ll hear and see
This magic new dimension

Will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through
Will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you

In silent lucidity…

Visualize your dream (Yes)
Record it in the present tense (Don’t be scared)
Put it into a permanent form
If you persist in your efforts
You can achieve a dream control
(How’re you doing today?) (Better?)

Dream come true
Dream come true
Dream come true

Help me…

If you open your mind for me
You won’t rely on open eyes to see

The walls you built within
Come tumbling down
And a new world will begin

Living twice at once you learn
You’re safe from pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly

A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize?
Your dream’s alive, you can be the guide but…

Will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through
Will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you…


        1. The hubs reminded me that we saw Twisted Sister separate from Queensryche. They opened for Metallica in 1989. My memory is fading. We were frequent concert goers back in the day. We need to get back into going. Make some new memories.

        1. The hubby reminded me we saw Queensryche with Metallica in 1989. Twisted Sister was a completely different show in 1984ish. He remembered because he got to go back stage as part of the fan club. Ah the good ole days 🙂
