Dreamer [Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2004, 10:44 pm]

Been listening to this Ozzy Osbourne song over & over again on iTunes:

Gazing through the window at the world outside
Wondering if mother earth will survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her, sometime

After all there痴 just the two of us
And here we are still fighting for our lives
Watching all of history repeat itself, time after time

I知 just a dreamer, I dream my life away
I知 just a dreamer, who dreams of better days

I watch the sun go down like everyone of us
I知 hoping that the dawn will bring a sign
A better place for those who will come after us this time

I知 just a dreamer, I dream my life away, oh yeah
I知 just a dreamer, who dreams of better days

Your higher power may be God or jesus christ
It doesn稚 really matter much to me
Without each other痴 help there ain稚 no hope for us
I知 living in a dream, a fantasy
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

If only we could just find serenity
It would be nice if we could live as one
When will all this anger, hate and bigotry be gone?

I知 just a dreamer, I dream my life away, today
I知 just a dreamer, who dreams of better days, ok
I知 just a dreamer, who痴 searching for the way, today
I知 just a dreamer, dreaming my life away
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

I think that song presents a very sad picture of a man who has no hope. If it was true that we as humans essentially "created oursevles", then I suppose it would make sense to be depressed about it, as he apparently is. I would be too, if there was nothing to live for but myself.

I find it interesting that, although he seems to be agnostic, he clearly yearns for a better place. That seems typical of human beings. Funny, isn't it? As much as I do pity Mr. Osbourne, I have to identify with his search for serenity. I only wish he would look in the right place...
