Dystopian Fantasy Boy

about

I love dystopian fiction. Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, 1984,......and some of the newer novels like Red Rising......are among my favorites. I wrote this song with a little bit of humor - poking fun at the predictable plots and doomed love interests - I hope you enjoy it.

lyrics

I hide my books about resisting the government
civil disobedience under the floorboards in my room
you have a dream about a time we'll overcome
the oppression of the masses and we will rise

our hands brush accidentally in the breadline
but our marks are not supposed to mix
there is something about you I can't quite place
and I can't resist

(chorus)
Let me be your dystopian fantasy boy
I could be your dystopian fantasy
It's your dream that I live for
If you let me be your dystopian fantasy

we break our curfew and sneak out into the night
run through the broken streets of the metropolis
we huddle together and feel our body's warmth
as we uncover the secrets of the society

no one can know about our love
we keep it a secret from our friends and our family
my heart beats faster than a drum
but I hold back every time we touch

(chorus)
Let me be your dystopian fantasy boy
I could be your dystopian fantasy
It's your dream that I live for
If you let me be your dystopian fantasy

we'll bring down this society

When we rise - we'll infiltrate the government
When we rise - we'll earn their trust
When we rise - the blood of the revolution will mix
with the dirt and the dust to form the foundation

We will rise - we'll orchestrate the coup
We will rise - we'll bring the ruling class down
We will rise - all people will be equal
and freedom will sound, freedom will sound

We will rise
(guitar solo)

our plan is discovered I'm imprisoned and tortured
but I am just the bait so you'll come and rescue me
you'll raise the resistance and storm the compound
but it'll be to late for you to save me

I will take my last breath in your arms
looking in your eyes
You will give me my last wish
when you kiss me goodbye, kiss me goodbye

(chorus)
Let me be your dystopian fantasy boy
I could be your dystopian fantasy
It's your dream that I live for
If you let me be your dystopian fantasy

We'll bring down this society
(epilogue - our child will grow)

He will rise - he'll be fair and kind
He will rise - he'll have my eyes
He will rise - and the world will know his name
is Justice, is Justice

He will rise.
