Let them sleep on they dreams, you stay lying awake
Great wordplay, to “sleep on” something means to miss out on something that should be paid attention to. We obviously dream in our sleep, but people are ignoring, and thus sleeping on their dreams.
One should never ignore their dreams, instead, focus on them as much as you can and never abandon your pursuit of these dreams. Never sleep on your dreams and let them pass, keep yourself awake so that your dreams have the chance to materialize.
