Treating Chronic Pain with Music Therapy

  • A wonderful community member suggested this song, The Dream Is Over by Van Halen, for some rockn' music therapy. Nothing feels better than rocking away the pain (through rocking chairs or rock music). Rock music helps to release aggressive feelings that tend to fester inside you when you're in pain. Listen to the latest music therapy...

     

     

     

    Pain does take away dreams of careers, vacations, and living life. When you are in pain, it is easy to feel "stripped, drawn, and cheated." But, do not feel defeated. "Nooo, sir!"  You can hold onto your fate "from a string" and regain control by "looking for direction." Another direction is all you need to find another dream because "this dream is over, dream another dream." When you are in pain and your dreams are smashed, you just need to keep reaching, keep "reachin' out for anything," and keep reaching for another dream. Just "dream another dream"!

    The Dream Is Over

    Van Halen

     

    Psst, hey, come on man, wake up.
    Oh, yeah, yeah!
    I see the power,
    Changin hands
    Risin from the streets
    A self made businessman,
    Knows how the system can be beat.
    Oh, we're the lost generation,
    Have no place to go,
    The road to destruction,
    Is all we need to know,
    Cause it's a rip off,
    We're stripped, drawn, and cheated,
    We're flat stone cold lied to
    But we're not defeated, nooo, sir
    Easy money,
    It's your way out,
    Join the family
    No middleman,
    No i.r.s.
    Your ticket out of poverty
    Oh, we're the lost generation,
    I hold fate from a string
    Lookin for direction
    Reachin' out for anything, so
    Dream another dream
    This dream is over, (oooh oooh oh)
    Dream another dream
    This dream is over, (dream another dream)
    Dream another dream
    This dream is over, (oooh) over yeah, (dream another dream)
    So dream another dream
    (solo)
    Ah,
    Yeow!!!!
    Oh, it's a rip off,
    We're stepped on an' cheated,
    Flat stone cold lied to,
    We're not defeated, noooo,
    Dream another dream, this dream is over, (oooh oooh oh)
    Dream another dream, this dream is over, (dream another dream)
