North American River Otter_1

This otter couldn’t sleep until he finished fact-checking “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac

Now here you go again, you say
You want your freedom
[True. Freedom is something all otters want]
Well who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
[True. Play is very important and should not be stopped by anyone]
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
[False. Loneliness has no sound]
Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost, and what you had, and what you lost
[False.  Despite the accuracy of one’s memory, one’s heartbeat cannot cause insanity.]
Thunder only happens when it’s raining
[False. Thunder happens when there is lighting. Lightning does not require rain.]
Players only love you when they’re playing
[False. While common, there have documented evidence of love regardless of the game being played]
Say women they will come and they will go
[True. In the grand fullness of time, we will all go]
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know
[False. You will know that you are wet. Knowing whether one is clean requires more than mere rain]
Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself, it’s only me
[False. Visions have been shared in many of Fleetwood Mac’s songs ]
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and,
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
[Possibly true. Selling dreams is possible, though they are usually converted into other forms first, such as novels, plays, or movies.]
Dreams of loneliness,
[Possibly true, but unlikely to sell at a reasonably high price]
(Chorus repeats)
