Assemblage 23 – Madman's Dream lyrics

I saw cities swallowed by the ocean
I saw children crying in the streets
Hundreds stranded on the overpass
Bodies rotting in the brutal heat

Cries for help fell on deaf ears
5 days passed and no one came
Pointing fingers while the people died
I saw a nation hang it's head in shame

Chorus
Have I awakened
Deep inside some madman's dream?
This is not my country
This is not what I believe
Have I awakened
Deep inside some madman's dream?
I can barely recognize
The place this used to be

Anarchy in the empty streets
The law dissolved like so much smoke
A dying prayer for the humanity
That washed away when the levees broke

[Chorus:]

A year went by and nothing changed
No justice left for the destitute
Abandoned cities, abandoned souls
Tomorrow's dream is yesterday's news

[Chorus:]
