Dreaming
I was only dreaming Of another place and time Where my family's from.
 Singing I can hear them singing.
When the rain had washed away
All these scattered dreams  Dying Everyone's reminding Hearts are washed in misery Drenched in gasoline  Laughter There is no more laughter Songs of yesterday Now live in the underground 
Life before the lobotomy Christian sang the eulogy Sign my love a lost memory From the end of the century 
Well, it's enough to make you sick
To cast a stone and throw a brick When the sky is falling down
It burned your dreams into the ground 
Christian's lesson is what he's been sold
We are normal and self-controlled Remember to learn to forget Whiskey shots and cheap cigarettes

Well I'm not stoned I'm just fucked up
I got so high I can't stand up
I'm not cursed 'cause I've been blessed I'm not in love 'cause I'm a mess

Like refugees We're lost like refugees Like refugees We're lost like refugees The brutality of reality Is the freedom that keeps me from
 Dreaming I was only dreaming Of another place and time Where my family's from.
 Singing I can hear them singing.
When the rain had washed away
All these scattered dreams  Dying Everyone's reminding Hearts are washed in misery Drenched in gasoline  Laughter There is no more laughter Songs of yesterday Now live in the underground
