CATCH THE DREAM
'Catch the dream' is about a man who lives his life in a perfect way, he strives to live by the rules and the perfect ideal of the American Dream. He started with nothing, but he built this life for himself, just like the true self-made man. He is a dream catcher: he catches all the good dreams, and never lets them go. The thing is, he always wants more, it’s never enough. He needs to prove his success, to show his success to his friends and colleagues. What he wants most is to show this, show the world that he’s doing a great job. Showing off like a bird of paradise, proud to present himself. Not willing to give up. Because of all the pressure he’s putting himself under to reach this perfect kind of masculinity, he’s getting crazy, caught in his dreams. It’s almost like he is in a psychosis that’s only about showing off and presenting himself as a successful man. The most important thing is that he stays proud, as long as he shall live.
