Last night I dreamt that they dropped a bomb
Oh the sea's ran dry and the winds had calmed
The skyscrapers fell, and crumbled to dust,
Their skeletons of steel were covered in rust

And everything I loved, and feared, had all at once, disappeared

Colours were drained straight from the sky
And nothing living had survived
Mountains were merely removed from the earth
And silver and gold had lost all it's worth

And everything I loved, and feared, had all at once, disappeared
Oh everything I loved, and feared, had all at once, disappeared

I woke from the dream in a cold, cold sweat
I was full of doubt and deep regret
For suddenly, it was all so clear to me
There was nothing left in which to believe

And everything I loved, and feared, had all at once, disappeared
Oh everything I loved, and feared, had all at once, disappeared

    I think the song is about losing something or someone you always feared to lose but once you did life went on. However your perceptions of life changed from the experience.
