Under the Cuenca Ecuador Spell?

Are you under the "Best place to retire abroad" spell?

Let’s see….

It’s close to midnight, and something’s bugging you in the dark

Under the moon light you feel a sight that almost stops your heart

You try to scream but luxurious pictures take the sound before you make it

You start to freeze as crafty copy looks you right between the eyes

You’re paralyzed

Cuz this is dream night

Greener  night

And no one’s gonna save you from the clock about to strike

You know its Greener, Dreamer  night

You’re fighting for your Mind inside a dreamer, greener tonight


You hear the door slam and realize that your wife is rolling her eyes

You feel the siren pulling and wonder if it’s all green grass abroad

You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination

But all the while you wish your life was better anyway

You’re out of time

Cuz this is your retirement dream,   Dreamer night

There ain’t no second chance against the grim reaper

You know its Dreamer,   Greener night

You’re fighting for your life inside a greener, dreamer tonight


There’s no escaping the jaws of father clock (they’re open wide)

This is the end of your life

They’re out to get you there’s emails closing in on every side

They will possess you unless you change that email address now

Now is the time for you and I to reason together

All through the while we’ll save you from the sizzle on the screen

We’ll let you see

That this is greener   Dreamer night

Cuz we can reason together more than any sales pitch would ever dare try

So let us hold your vision and share a reality check tonight

Cuz this is Dreamer 

Darkness falls across the land the midnight hour is close at hand

Sales pieces crawl in search of retirees to suck you into their daily breeze

And whosoever shall be found that dares tread clearly must stand and face the retirement wizard

And rot inside their solitude

The crafty copy is in the air the funk of 30 traveling years

And grizzly goblins from your home town are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to understand your mind and body start to shiver

For no mere mortal can resist the greenest lure of foreign lands
