Dreams of Future Reality

In a dream I seen too many ways to escape
this nightmare that stretched for light years
so I don't know what's real or fake.
the truth suddenly came to me like it does after five beers
in my system the uphill struggle I face.

In a dream I seen it wasn't gonna be easy here
in the pursuit of victory many defeats I'd taste.
I don't know if I have to travel far or near
or stay right here to bump into success I search for.
and if I have to dig into the earth's core is unclear

to find the root of achievement at the ocean's floor
or to drown losing a battle few think I can win
to lose this fight and drown myself in juice & gin...
Now that I'm awake, I'm ready to begin.
