When someones' wildest dreams turn to people's nightmares ..

https://archive.org/download/cdjbjejgs...
They decorated all the generals
who fought the war behind the lines
They had forgotten all the soldiers
the brandy puts them way behind the times

Insanity has found its way to TV screens
vision seems impossible to me ..
They fight (FIGHT!) for king (FOR KING!) and country
I never would have thought this in my
wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Wildest dreams

The evening comes, we sit and watch the VJs
clips and rushes come from, who knows where
from Washington across to California
with fighting breaking out in Leicester Square

We see the soldiers moving on to victory
and children trampled under marching feet..
They fight (FIGHT!) for king (FOR KING!) and country
how many millions will they put to sleep ?

Wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Fly away


No, not in this world
No, not in the next !
No, not in my – wildest dreams

They recommended euthanasia
for non-conformers anywhere
some men's dreams for others turn to nightmares
this never would have happened in their
wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Wildest dreams
Fly away

No, not in this world
No, not in the next !
no, not in the wildest dreams
