​20th Century Dreaming (A Shaman's Song)

This song is by David Sylvian & Robert Fripp and appears on the album The First Day (1993) and on the live album Damage (1994).

Cold morning, start of another day
Sleeping through the epilogue, waking to the sound of rain
Driven to the crossroads where value's meaningless
What did you do to my faith in justice, hope and happiness

Social, economical, spiritual
I'm moving to the house of love

Take my fire, take my food and water
Forget about those promises of social good and social order
Lassoed by the cowboys, tied down and it shows
Well, I'm roping in those bad dreams and selling off my working clothes

Social, economical, spiritual
I'm moving to the house of love

Gonna take a course of action to restore my sight
Till the heart of motivation is filled with a golden light
They're hiding in the treetops, tugging at my coat
But the power lines are falling down and burning in the undergrowth

Social, economical, spiritual
I'm moving to the house of love

As the river runs
Tumbles and turns
You know you shouldn't stay
Or play the game again
But it could be different this time
You may win

Dreaming, dreaming
Dreaming, dreaming, lying down

Dreaming, dreaming
Dreaming, dreaming, lying down

I'm moving to the house of love

Here comes the dreaming
