Influences[edit]

Speed described the ideas behind The Dreamer by saying that it came together in a relatively short time although its concepts had been with him for a very long time. "As I remember from when I was a little kid, I found out that the writer Roald Dahl used to get ideas and write them down on scraps of paper then stow them away in his desk drawer for a rainy day. This music is from my rainy day ideas that were stowed away then brought out and melded together to make this record." [1]

Song ideas[edit]

The songs are described by Speed [1] as:

  • "Unconventional Paradig"m - a proposal on an advancement of humanity
  • "Art Is..." - his philosophy on the nature of art
  • "Miss Bitty" - the story of how he met his girlfriend
  • "The World Song" - a "shout out" to the people of Earth
  • "Ready For Action" - the nature of self-confidence and alter egos
  • "Everybody Needs Somebody" - a song about "pure infatuation"
  • "You Should Be Dancing" - about shyness, skill building and ballroom dancing
  • "On The End Of A String" - his philosophy on living life
  • "Nudity" - about surreal experimentalism and for people who love craziness
  • "Can't Get Home" - a story about two space explorers who are shipwrecked and marooned while on a reconnaissance mission
  • "Don’t Waste My Time" - his response to an unfavourable review of a Curse Ov Dialect album Lost In The Real Sky and also his dislike of procrastination
  • "The Cities" - a story about a sinister city and a crumbling world
  • "Repressive Society" - about repressive societies
  • "Come On!" - a song for people who love the future
