Have you heard about the lucid dream?
Do you know about the lucid dream?
Do you dare have a lucid dream?
Do you care for a lucid dream?

You can live in a lucid dream
You can die in a lucid dream
You can fly in a lucid dream
You can lie in a lucid dream

Dream on but remember to stay awake
While you’re in deep sleep
Dream on but remember to
stay awake while you're in deep sleep.

Here's the deal about lucid dreaming
Before you hit the sack you got to know exactly
what to dream about!
Sex, lust, power, peace, love, wealth, dope, life, birth,
death, peace, birth, death, power, birth, life , power, birth,
life, power, birth...

Now the last thing on your mind
must be exactly the thing you want to dream about...
in the moment you fall asleep!
Fall asleep in your lucid dream...
Take a ride in your lucid dream...
Have a laugh in your lucid dream...
Just make love in your lucid dream....
Dream on...
Stay awake!
Give me a hug in your lucid dream
Dream on!
That's the deal about lucid dreaming
Stay awake
Dream on, that's the deal...

This is so original! Let's see, we have Rock, Blues, Trance and Latin rolled into one. Who would have thunk??!! You are one of the most creative musicians I know. I never know what to expect when I click onto one of your songs for the first time...but I know I am going to like it!

Nice panning on the vocal effects. Love it! I'm not sure how much of a market there is for this type of music, but I'm a fan!

Great guitar work, as usual. And the production is superb. Your a pretty cool Viking, Ken! All the best, my friend.

That is a great intro! This song is drenched in jj cale -- and that's a good thing. But it is still a Ken original and mighty cool. I am not sure about 8 lines of "lucid dream" in the beginning, I found that a little too much.

Pretty fine stuff.

This is so cool , really enjoyed the listen !!! That intro bass drew my attention. Good vocal. Love the way you produced it.
Keep up the good work.
All the best

That drew my attention all right
Definitely qualifies as original.
Actually, I used to dabble in that some--
(Well, maybe you have to be a mite strange, but I qualify on that score<G>)
Enjoyed it

Hi Ken,

For some reason, the intro to this song always makes me think of a 747 heading slowly down a run way, gather up its speed and power and then take off into the sky. I have it on disc and when I'm drivin' in my truck and it comes on when I'm going up one of the bridges in town, it's a great feeling.

Love the production, love your sexy Danish-accented English...well, it's true, I do....this is a sexy song with a great groove!

deres sangfugl,

Hey Ken, man this is a brilliantly produced piece of music, the
instrumentation equally so, with the vocal, lyric, delivery,
and effects it all adds up to a very enjoyable listen almost
hypnotically so, real good,

This might be one of the most original pieces I have heard on this forum. Extremely cool, Ken. smile

Perfect match of everything on this - vocal, panning, production, lyric. And a very cool subject too!

Oh man!
I'm sure I replied to this one days ago, but maybe it was a dream.
Well anyway hello everybody - I'm awake (in my sleep)

Thanks Alan, my best man!
You are always so cool to have a message from.

Hi Kevin,
Thanks for pointing the repetes out.
I'll reconsider the lines when re-recording.

Thanks Jan(-:
Vikings rules! (at least somewhere up north)

Hi Wyman.
Nice to hear from a fellow lucid dreamer

Ellen, I know you are out of town these days, and I'm sending best vibes to you and your husband hoping you are having a nice journey.

If you got a bit hypnotized, I'm glad.
If I can devolop further, I have something special on my hand...ha ha ha.

Hi Scott.
Thanks man!
I've got the feeling, that you could be a lucid dreamer too?

Hi Ricki.
Thanks a lot!

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
