Another World



                                                    ANOTHER WORLD


                      There is no sleep, only naps and dreams

                                   And in those dreams are no kings or queens

                       No beautiful castles, no parties or joy

                                  What is the future for the next girl and boy


                       To what kind of world will they awake

                                  Will they ever taste their wedding cake

                       Raise children with joy, and build their first house

                                  Or inherit a world created by Faust


                        These are the questions that we must ask

                    When this pestilent plague has finally passed
