Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming
Sayin’ something about a queen
There were peasants singin’ and drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree

There was a fanfare blowin’ to the sun
That was floating on the breeze
Look at mother nature on the run in the nineteen seventies
Look at mother nature on the run in the nineteen seventies

I was lyin’ in a burned out basement
With a full moon in my eyes
I was hopin’ for a replacement
When the sun burst through the sky

There was a band playin’ in my head
And I felt like getting high
I was thinkin’ about what a friend had said, I was hopin’ it was a lie
Was thinkin’ about what a friend had said, I was hopin’ it was a lie

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying
In the yellow haze of the sun
There were children crying and colors flying
All around the chosen ones

All in a dream, all in a dream
The loading had begun
Flyin’ mother nature’s silver seed to a new home in the sun
Flyin’ mother nature’s silver seed to a new home
