"INSANE DREAMERS"

Verse 1
If we're dreaming,
Let's continue to dream,
Though the whole world
Thinks we're way off the beam.
If this is Heaven,
Let's live it well.
Some may not like it,
But it sure beats their hell.

[If we're ----dreaming, let's continue to ----dream.]

Rap 1
All of those passive, little pip-squeak, Mr. Milk-Toast,
Milk-and-water, String-for-a-backbone, jelly fish-
They just drift with the tide, never step out of line.
They just drift along with the slop and the garbage,
And the flotsam and the jetsam and the froth and the foam
And the slime and the ooze of normality,
The silent majority, who never make a dent in history.

But it's the un-conventionalist, non-traditionalist, non-conformist, individualist,
Radical, fanatical, iconoclast, idol-smasher, breaker-downer, rooter-outer and rebuilder,

Chorus 1
Insane dreamers
The ones who God can really use.
There are so few. -
All those insane dreamers,
Who actually get things done,
And they really have a lot of fun.
I want to be one of those insane dreamers.

Rap 2
Like Noah and Abraham, Moses, Joseph,
Joshua, Gideon, Samson, David,
Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Ezekiel,
Jeremiah, Hezekiah, Zedekiah, Zachariah,
Jesus!
Peter, Paul, John, Saint Augustine,
Brother Sun, Sister Moon, Savanarola,
Martin Luther, Tyndale, and Knox. Don't put us in a box! 'Cause we're …

Chorus 2
Insane dreamers
The ones who God can really use.
There are so few. -
All those insane dreamers,
Who actually get things done,
And they really have a lot of fun.
I want to be one, want to be insane.

Rap 3
If some brave pioneer of the Spirit, not flesh,
Is so foolhardy as to even suggest,
Like any courageous iconoclast,
To be so presumptuous and dare to smash
Idols of self-called normalcy,
What's psychologically accepted by the un-silent majority
Who justify themselves by comparing themselves with themselves,
They are immediately,
Hooted down as a maniac,
Denounced as demented,
Hanged as heretics,
And crucified as criminals.
But no matter how hard they try to make us conform
To their politically correct accepted norm,
We're never ever, ever gonna be the same.
So now help us, Lord, in Jesus' name,
To be …

Chorus 3
Insane dreamers
The ones who God can really use.
There are so few. -
All those insane dreamers,
Who actually get things done,
And they have an awful lot of fun.
Want to be one, want to be insane.

[If we're ----dreaming, let's continue to ----dream.]

Chorus 4
One of those insane dreamers
Just having so much fun.
Wanna be one, wanna be one,
Wanna be insane dreamers.
