A great man had a dream
Ending in a murder scene
And I'm not such a man
Never been so brave or grand

But little one
I had a dream
About a nation that became...

A dazzling sky
The heroes of youth

A burning ache
Resurrecting Truth

My dreamy one
I had a dream
About a nation that became...

A guiding hand
Wipes the greed away

A whistle blown
Digs corruption's grave

My dreamy one
I had a dream
About a nation that became...

A jasmine wind
Turns the air so sweet

A cleansing spring
Washes stained elites

Oh, little one
I had a dream
About a nation that became...

A brilliant star
'Bove a poor man's house

A treasure chest
Let the magic out

My dreamy one
I had a dream
Oh, dreamy one, Oh, dreamy one
I had a dream...

This shadow of a man
Had a dream he can't forget
A shadow with a dream
A nation changed, a nation blessed

And let us sing...

Lux et Veritas... Victoria
Let's make our dreams come true

Lux et Veritas... Victoria
And the dream begins with you

My dreamy one
I had a dream

A nation changed
A nation blessed
