I could be sleeping
I could be dreaming
I could have ordinary people chasing me from town to town
Mission Impossible
They've got a spy for every blink of your eye

I'm feeling awkward
I'm feeling toungue tied
They've got a knife for every time you take the same train into work
A family's like a loaded gun
You point it in the wrong direction someone's going to get killed

If you had such a dream
Would you get up and do the things you believe in?

Is he your husband?
Or just your boyfriend?
Is he the moron who's been beating you and keeping you inside?
I've never done this kind of thing
But if I kill him now, well who's going to miss him?

I went up to the school
I took a walk up Castlehill
For every step there was a local boy who wants to be a hero
Do you want to do it now?
Outside the butchers with a knife and a bike chain

If you had such a dream
Would you get up and do the things you believe in?

If you had such a dream, would you get up and do the things
If you had such a dream, would you get up and do the things

While your head is clear, while your head is clear
While your head is clear, while your head is clear

If you had such a dream
Would you get up and do the things you believe in?
