“Come lay your head down on the stone So cool and white and welcome home Oh, lose your troubles Ease your pain Soothe your soul in golden rain” “Don’t Mess with Doctor Dream” is the most unusual of Thompson Twins songs being anti-drug in theme. Such songs rarely go over in the US so this warning of drug addiction dangers went uncharted there but scaled up to UK #15. This song is more of a rocker as the band was leaving synthpop behind. “Don’t Mess with Doctor Dream” is on the “Here’s to Future Days” album.
