Dream World
by Leah Smith



In the city I was raised in
They're neglecting the children
Raised by TV or the thugs in the streets
(Gotta make that money)
The school system's ballistic
Miseducated statistics
(Every four years we hear politicians say they gon' make it better, but no)

Oh ohh oh
Noooo no
Oh ohh oh
Nooooo no
Oh ohh oh
No no no nooo
We keep on burying each other
(Ohhhhhh)
Carrying on like it's routine
(Ohhhhhh)
Waiting for someone to stop and shout (Ohhhhhh) "This is crazy!"
Wake us up!
Wake us up!
Wake us up out of our dreamworld
Wake us up!
Dreamworld
Wake us up!
Dreamworld

Well now this ain't no dream, it's a nightmare
And while we're sleeping, we're breathing lies in the air
As slowly we make peace with all the evil that's around
Around....
Around....
La La La La Laaa

We keep on burying each other
(Ohhhhhh)
Carrying on like it's routine
(Ohhhhhh)
Waiting for someone to stop and shout (Ohhhhhh) "This is crazy!"
Wake us up!
Wake us up!
C'mon ya'll let's - Wake up
Confront the realities that - Make up
The world all around us gotta - Change up
(The way that we respond to the )
How much longer can we - Fake it
Faith without works is simply - Worthless
Praying for change but also - Working towards (seeing the world restore)
C'mon ya'll let's
