Kai’s Dream

Lyrics by Xingzhi Zhang
It appeared to me as a dream
The clear mark of scales
The relentless formations of imperial edifice The dark dragonsong
The river galloping upon Dragon’s Head Peak As I stared into the reticent blackness of the ruin
Let me drink there to awaken a dream Grant me brick and tile
Grant me plant and tree
I know that you dream
A palace of epic proportion
The unification complete
A sweeping vision of the world beneath your feet Dreams once concealed in dark
Like a restrained black Dragon
Let me drink there to awaken a dream To change the course of history
To change the way the universe is seen
This millennia old city
What it needs is our dream
To tear through the vault of heaven
