Refugee from the Dreamworld


I am a refugee from the dreamworld
In this new home my wings don't work
People here are suspicious of me
When I look at them, they look away


Artist: Cyril Rolando

I am a refugee from the dreamworld
Everything here makes too much sense
There is so little mystery
That I'm afraid to fall in love

Artist: Andre Masson

I am a refugee from the dreamworld
My old home has been blown to bits
People here use it for target practice
It only lives in my memory

Artist: Joan Miro

I am a refugee from the dreamworld
And I will never go home again
Home is a word that has no meaning here
My language has become extinct

Artist: Paul Nash

I am a refugee from the dreamworld
Maybe you are too
Tell me your story so I understand
Maybe we can build a new homeland
