$ARRATOR
SOME FOLKS DREAM OF THE WONDERS THEYLL DO
BEFORE THEIR TIME ON THIS PLANET IS THROUGH.
SOME JUST DONT HAVE ANYTHING PLANNED
THEY HIDE THEIR HOPES AND THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND.
NOW, I DONT SAY WHO IS WRONG, WHO IS RIGHT,
BUT IF BY CHANCE YOU ARE HERE FOR THE NIGHT,
THEN ALL I NEED IS AN HOUR OR TWO
TO TELL THE TALE OF A DREAMER LIKE YOU.
WE ALL DREAM A LOT.
SOME ARE LUCKY, SOME ARE NOT.
BUT IF YOU THINK IT, WANT IT, DREAM IT,
THEN ITS REAL
YOU ARE WHAT YOU FEEL.

BUT ALL THAT I SAY CAN BE TOLD ANOTHER WAY.
IN THE STORY OF A BOY WHOSE DREAMS CAME TRUE.
AND IT COULD BE YOU.

JOS"P'
I CLOSED MY EYES, DREW BACK THE CURTAIN
TO SEE FOR CERTAIN WHAT I THOUGHT I KNEW.
FAR, FAR AWAY SOMEONE WAS WEEPING
BUT THE WORLD WAS SLEEPING.
ANY DREAM WILL DO.

JOS"P'

WITH GOLDEN LINING

BRIGHT COLORS SHINING

WONDERFUL AND NEW

A CRASH OF DRUMS, A FLASH OF LIGHT
MY GOLDEN COAT FLEW OUT OF SIGHT.
THE COLORS FADED INTO DARKNESS
I WAS LEFT ALONE

TO THE BEGINNNING
THE LIGHT IS DIMMING
AND THE DREAM IS TOO

JOSEPHS COAT ANNOYED HIS BROTHERS.
,ROT'"RS
BUT WHAT MAKES US MAD
ARE THE DREAMS THAT JOSEPH TELLS US
OF THE DREAMS HES OFTEN HAD.
JOS"P'
I DREAMED THAT IN THE FIELDS ONE DAY THE CORN GAVE ME A SIGN#
YOUR ELEVEN SHEAVES OF CORN ALL TURNED AND BOWED TO MINE.
MY SHEAF WAS $UITE A SIGHT TO SEE, A GOLDEN SHEAF AND TALL.
YOURS WERE GREEN AND SECOND RATE AND REALLY RATHER SMALL.
,ROT'"RS
THIS IS NOT THE KIND OF THING WE BROTHERS LIKE TO HEAR.
IT SEEMS TO US THAT JOSEPH AND HIS DREAMS SHOULD DISAPPEAR.

JOS"P'
I DREAMED I SAW ELEVEN STARS, THE SUN AND MOON AND SKY
BOWING DOWN BEFORE MY STAR. IT MADE ME WONDER WHY.
COULD IT BE THAT I WAS BORN FOR HIGHER THINGS THAN YOU'
A POST IN SOMEONES GOVERNMENT, A MINISTRY OF TWO'

,ROT'"RS
THE DREAMS OF OUR DEAR BROTHER ARE THE DECADES BIGGEST
YAWN.
HIS TALK OF STARS AND GOLDEN SHEAVES IS JUST A LOAD OF CORN.
NOT ONLY IS HE TACTLESS BUT HES ALSO RATHER DIM.
FOR THERES ELEVEN OF US AND THERES ONLY ONE OF HIM.

THE DREAMS, OF COURSE, WILL NOT COME TRUE.
THAT IS, WE THINK THEY WONT COME TRUE.
THAT IS, WE HOPE THEY WONT COME TRUE.
WHAT IF HES RIGHT ALL ALONG'!
THE DREAMS ARE MORE THAN CRYSTAL CLEAR. THE WRITING ON THE
WALL
MEANS THAT JOSEPH SOMEDAY SOON WILL RISE ABOVE US ALL.
THE ACCURACY OF THE DREAMS WE BROTHERS DO NOT KNOW,
BUT ONE THING WE ARE SURE ABOUT# THE DREAMER HAS TO GO!
