Mile: Have you ever wished that you lived in a dream?

Mile – Dear Mr. Sandman

8 Mile is a 2002 American drama film written by Scott Silver and directed by Curtis Hanson. It stars Eminem in his film debut. Rap is definitely nothing for me, but I enjoy the band simply called Mile.

Swedish melodic metal band Mile proudly release their second single Dear Mr. Sandman, which is taken from the upcoming album A Shattered Mind due for release via Wormholedeath.

The band, speaking of the single: «Have you ever wished that you lived in a dream? This song is about asking the Sandman for a place where everything is clear and happy but then realizing that it is the real world and your real life that really matters. It is time to break free and live your life».

Lyrics:

Dear Mr. Sandman, is this my reality?

Dear Mr. Sandman, won’t you give me a dream?

One, that gives me all the answers, that is shining full of light.

Can you hear me plead as I long and pray for the night?

Dear Mr. Sandman, can you change reality?

Dear Mr. Sandman, can you make me a dream?

Where I surely will be happy, and I’m full of joy and life.

Can you make me feel like I’m finally coming alive?

I’ve been searching for the light. My life…

Is nothing more than a lie. Wake up!

This time I’ve had enough.

I’ve been dreaming all my life, but I’m finally awake.

‘till the end of time, I will fight or die, to get out

Dreaming all my life…

‘till the end of time, I will fight or die, to get out…

Of this dream

Dear Mr. Sandman, this is my reality!

Dear Mr. Sandman, won’t you let me be free?

I am tired of illusions, and I’m longing for the truth.

And it’s clear to me that the only devil is you.

I’ve been searching for the light. My life…

Is nothing more than a lie. Wake up!

This time I’ve had enough.

I’ve been dreaming all my life, but I’m finally awake.

‘till the end of time, I will fight or die, to get out

Dreaming all my life…

‘till the end of time, I will fight or die, to get out…

Of this dream

[Talking]

The human mind can be a prison, as well as the key.

Nothing more, and nothing less, can set you free.

Is this life the truth or just a simple…dream?

I’ve been dreaming all my life, but I’m finally awake.

‘till the end of time, I will fight or die, to get out

Dreaming all my life…

‘till the end of time, I will fight or die, to get out…

Of this dream

About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
