Original Poem "Ode" by Arthur O'Shaughnessy. 1844–1881

Lyrics:
WE are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, 5
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world's great cities, 10
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire's glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song's measure 15
Can trample an empire down.

We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth; 20
And o'erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world's worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.

Looking forward to checking out the new track(s) when I get home after this weekend! Back to you goes with Balad of Billy Nye? I know you you heard that one before, I think it's a decent track, especially in terms of lyrics and chord structure: https://www.feed-forward.net/w.5758_The_Ballad_of_Billy_Nye Thanks again, shoham
