(Yo!) In this hole I'm reaching for the light
(No!) A lot of dreams are lost in the night
Tech is crawling out of his dark hole and working his way into the light, and he does this because too many dreams are lost (either forgotten or stolen) in the night (darkness).
Since K.O.D., Tech’s sad songs are considered as part of The Hole, which has been used several times after this album to introspective songs. He means that in this song he’s trying to fight his way through the dark and find positive.
Also, the dream part is actually a triple-entendre:
1 When you wake up, it’s hard to remember the dreams you had during your sleep.
2 When times are dark, sometimes you have to abandon your dreams to be able to recover and gain some stability in your life.
3 “Dreaming” is a song by N.O.R.E. feat. ¡MAYDAY! (Signed to Strange) and Tech N9ne. Even tho' critics welcomed the album with mixed reviews, the album didn’t perform that well commercially, meaning that one of his great collaborations got overshadowed by other artists.
