A man with a club that threatens your life
is cause to be alarmed.
But a man with a club or gun or knife
Can be disarmed.
You might rout a man with a club or a gun
With a threat or frantic scream,
But beware the man....the deadliest man......
Armed with a dream!
A dream....with the faith to follow the dream,
Is keener than a blade,
For out of a dream and faith in a dream
Our world was made!
Let there be light....and there was light.
Let there be wings.....we fly,
Let there be dreams and faith in dreams.....
NEED WE DIE?
What a man can dream a man can do....
Trips, perhaps to the moon?
Who dares say that we canít or wonít?
Iím booking soon!
