Some people call you a dreamer by trade
An optimistic fool who never made the grade.
You see a future that rust will not fade
Time cannot destroy and lies will never jade.

All around you there are apathetic eyes
Driving through the day in mega super-size.
Never free, their faces smile in disguise
Always wanting more…nothing satisfies.

Imagine war as a word no one knows
Truth is the only thing that anybody owes.
There are no smokestacks all standing in rows
A greedy man only reaps what he sows.

Some people call you a dreamer by trade
An optimistic fool who never made the grade.
I see an honest man who earns what he gets paid
Believes in what is right and will not be afraid.

I see a man.
