Well, I told you about the forest and trees and the chlorophyll green
Yes, I told you the birds will endure flutter wings dance on leaves
Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams, tonight

Well, I told you about the high pressure cell coming down on the breeze
And I sense that the things you can't see they are hard to believe
So, hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams, tonight

A new world order has been formed
Between the cheque book and the dawn
A new renaissance man is born

Renaissance man, are you ready?
Renaissance man, yeah
Renaissance man, are you ready?
See what a world that you can make

Well, I heard about the spirit of life is it flickering still
Ooh, I heard that the dark bellied angels come running up the hill
Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams, tonight

Smash and grab the women and child
All the souls are growing wild
Stripped so bare well the universe

Stares it's so close to home
That we got to share with you
So many genuine things surround

You wild weather man well it still confounds
You cast away the greed and death machine
And bytes and abacus and lights
And hold onto your dreams, tonight
(Hold onto dreams)
Hold onto your dreams, tonight

So you found a hard won friend
To hold your hand and hold your head
A new renaissance to defend

Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams, tonight
Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams, tonight
Hold onto dreams, hold onto dreams, tonight

Renaissance man, are you ready?
Renaissance man, yeah
Renaissance man, are you ready?
See what a world that you can make

(Renaissance man)
Where are we going to be?
(Renaissance man)
In three thousand thirty three
(Renaissance man)
What's spinning round your brain?
(See what a world that you can make)

(Renaissance man)
Are you a renaissance man?
(Renaissance man)
Are you a renaissance woman?
If you jump out an angel will give you wings
See what a world that you can make

Renaissance man
See what a world that you can make
