Distant Dream

Open yourself up to a timeless possibility
Even if it feels like a complete implausibility
A distant dream in a far away land
That can still be reached by insistent demand
Just come out of the cave and take the test
Leave everybody feeling incredibly impressed
“Struggle builds character”, a wise man once said
Just swallow the nutrients and keep your brain well fed

You can feel the future engorging the present
Engaging the status quo with its wave of dissent
Slicing up conventions and challenging beliefs
Unwittingly launching many fevered beefs
With the stubborn, the scared and the truly dumb
All reluctant to abandon their emotional slum
Them taking the chance is just too much to ask
So lead the way by removing your mask
