Cause out here on the real streets, a dreamer always stay sleep
Nice wordplay here: Dreams occur in the subconscious. When you are dreaming, you are not out living in the real world, hence you’re “sleeping”.
A deeper interpretation for this line could be using the world sleep to mean death. Trying to live a fantasy world where everything is ideal (dreamer) could end up getting you killed out on the streets. The line essentially parallel’s the quote “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”.
