we’ve had our dose of reality, you and i
so let’s try the fantasy, try the pie in the sky

what have we to lose, we’ve hardened our hearts
let’s soften it now, better yet replace the parts

from now on a diet very rich in love
it takes getting used to, so lets give it a shove

exercise it with a regimen of tenderness
though the strongest muscle, it also needs to destress

last but not least, here’s the best way to medicate
say a prayer, make a wish, better yet meditate

thoughts that swirl in our mind have the most impact
if they are poor it’s like an oft repeated soundtrack

but if you practice enough, work at it you’ll see
what is now fantasy will one day turn to reality
