After The Gold Rush (Neil Young Cover) (Lyrics)

Well I dreamed I saw the knights in armour coming 
Saying something about a queen. 
There were peasants singing and 
Drummers drumming 
And the archers split the tree. 
There was a fanfare blowing 
To the seen 
That was floating on the breeze; 
Look at Mother Nature on the run 
In the nineteen seventies. 

I was lying in a burned out basement 
With the full moon in my eyes 
I was hoping for replacement 
When the sun burst thru the sky. 
There was a band playing in my head 
And I felt like getting high 
I was thinking about what a friend had said. 
I was hoping it was a lie. 

Well I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships lying 
In the yellow haze of the sun. 
There were children crying 
and colors flying 
All around the chosen ones 
All in a dream All in a dream. 
The loading had begun. 
They were flying Mother nature's silver seed to a new home in the sun.
