    A beautiful and empathetic sad song by The KINKS with a bittersweet and happy memories remembered with nostalgia. Especially when being in our younger age, imagining of what our average life became and could've become to be made better or worse by ''dreaming'', when seeing and watching our Hollywood movie stars and entertainers playing their roles of our heroes and villans that acted out of themselves for the rest of us to see them, to imagine and dream through them ''ourselves'' that in real life we're all stars with a role to play in our own life. Where in reality we all struggle and suffer, being fragile and hard with everyday life that unfortunately at times comes those moments of ''shattered reality'' remembered by the 911 tragic war events that came upon us on that day. Where our ''celluloid heroes'' sadly didn't seemed as real and important for us as they were in the movie shows, compare to real life Heroes that gave a helping hand when losing our loved ones for real who were and are the real Heroes in God's name that didn't die in vain.
