Long Song Description:
Story Behind the Song:
The Dream that is Iran was produced for the people of Iran, to inspire them during their coming difficult hour of revolution to overthrow the oppressive regime that now rules their country.

For the record, I am a Gnostic Christian mystic who believes that God is love and that love is letting go of the fear that causes human beings to harm each other in the name of hatred and hypocrisy, religious or otherwise.

Lyrics
The Dream That is Iran
lyrics and music
by Bruce Anderson

Whenever you can dream you can see beyond yourself,
Whatever you can dream you can be,
However you can dream take your strength now off the shelf,
Good people of Iran you can see,

It's time to light the fire that exists in every soul,
The light that is required to be free,
The freedom you desire is right here within your heart,
The lion and sword in you and me,

Refrain:

Now see through the darkness and come out into the light,
Your destiny's waiting as you overcome your fright,
The lion and sword will soon return to free Iran,
But each must do everything you can,

Remember the dream that is Iran,
-

You once believed a dream Allah gave you from above,
Muhammed then received sacred words,
Now blind men have deceived and distorted Allah's love,
Their hatred a shame throughout the world,

But God is not deceived as they strike good people down,
The truth that you believe sets you free,
Will rise up once again when the last Imam is found,
As the lion and sword makes history,

Refrain:
