Come with me to the sunset strip in the wake of illegal file sharing. See the crippled entertainment industry struggling to re-define itself. Hear the army of entitled performers still expecting their big break. See the dreamer finally understanding that the art is what matters. Watch him live to dream again.


LIVE TO DREAM AGAIN (Flanagan/Franklin)

The sun never sets on sunset – restless in the neon glow
Sold my heart on the boulevard, now I can’t find my way back home.
Nobody sleeps in an endless night. Shadows of ghosts in the streetlight
Happy to compromise and never asking why…

Close your eyes and watch the sun rise.
Live to dream again. Live to dream again.
Chase the moment even if you never reach the end,
Live to dream again.

The dark of the night is shapeless when time passes by so slow
I think to myself, if this is hell, who’s gonna buy my bartered soul?
Everyone’s screaming to just be heard – a choir of white noise and lost words.
But where do you sign when all the dotted lines are blurred?


They say ‘You play in our game’
I say ‘Do it your own way’
One day, they’ll be the ones who say
‘I knew it all along’
