You think you had the last laugh Now you know this can't be true Even though the sun shines down upon you now Sometimes you must feel blue You make the best of each new day You try not to be sad Even though the sky falls down upon you Call it midnight, feelin' bad When you wake up to the promise Of your dream world comin' true With one less friend to call on Was it someone that I knew Away you will go sailin' In a race among the ruins If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon The road to love is littered By the bones of other ones Who by the magic of the moment Were mysteriously undone You try to understand it But you never seem to find Any kind of freedom comin' clean Is just another state of mind When you wake up to the promise Of your dream world comin' true With one less friend to call on Was it someone that I knew Away you will go sailin' In a race among the ruins If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon So take the best of all that's left You know this cannot last Even though your mother was you maker From her apron strings you pass Just think about the fool Who by his virtue can be found In a most unusual situation Playin' jester to the clown When you wake up to the promise Of your dream world comin' true With one less friend to call on Was it someone that I knew Away you will go sailin' In a race among the ruins If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon When you wake up to the promise Of your dream world comin' true With one less friend to call on Was it someone that I knew Away you will go sailin' In a race among the ruins If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon
