May 12th 2004. Clay was scheduled for an exclusive interview with Larry King on CNN but at the last minute he was conscripted to do a command performance for American Idol season 3 and according to his restrictive management contract, he had to do it. This was the last time he would perform for American Idol under contract to them. By the end of May 2004, Clay was free of their control and this song and the way he performed it was an inspired "see ya later" to AI because he was free of their control. You gotta love a guy who can enjoy the performance, sing the heck out of a great old song and flip the bird all at the same time. The final 4 contestants seemed to have as much fun singing back-up with Clay as he had making lemonade out of lemons. He even dressed like he did for his original audition, complete with untucked shirt and glasses but he looked every inch the star he had become!

That's my take on it anyway. Enjoy! It makes me smile every time!

Fantasy- Lyrics

Every man has a place, in his heart there's a space,
And the world can't erase his fantasies
Take a ride in the sky, on our ship fantasii
All your dreams will come true, right away

And we will live together, until the twelfth of never
Our voices will ring forever, as one

Every thought is a dream, rushing by in a stream,
Bringing life to our kingdom of doing
Take a ride in the sky, on our ship fantasii
All your dreams will come true, miles away

Our voices will ring together until the twelfth of never,
We all, will live forever, as one

Come see victory, in the land called fantasy
Loving life, a new decree,
Bring your mind to everlasting liberty

Our minds will explore together, old worlds, we conquer, forever
We then, will expand love together, as one

Come to see, victory in a land called fantasy,
Loving life, for you and me, to behold, to your soul is ecstasy
You will find, other kinds, that have been in search of you,
Many lives have brought you to
Recognize it's your life, now in review
And as you stay for the play, fantasy, has in store for you,
A glowing light will see you through

Its your day, shining day, all your dreams come true
As you glide, in your stride with the wind, as you fly away
Give a smile, from your lips, and say
I am free, yes I'm free, now I'm on my way...
