As the buildings crumble, tumble to the ground
And the dust-filled smoke rises in the air
You know that somebody somewhere looks with pride, theyre satisfied

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that theyre right
Dyou ever wonder why
Dyou never ask the question even in the depths of night?

Now as the daylight fading ends another day
For too many life will never be the same
And it is all for the reason they will never understand

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that theyre right
Dyou ever wonder why
Dyou never ask the question even in the depths of night?

And on the morning after do you realise
See the ruined faces and the ruined lives
Inside your head do you never have the thought a moment of doubt?

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that theyre right
Dyou ever wonder why
Dyou never ask the question even in the depths of night?

There are only dreams one like any other
What means the earth to one or few means nothing to another
There are only dreams like any other

Drawing lines upon the sand, on the land, on the sea
Then dying to defend them seems quite meaningless to me

Dont you know what means the earth to some or only one
Can mean just nothing nothing nothing to another

There are only dreams like any other
There are only differences, worth living but not dying for

One mans joy makes another man weep
Nothing you can do is ever gonna change it
One mans saint is another mans fool
One mans hot is another mans cool

And when the war is over, won
Will there be peace for evermore?

Statues carved right out of stone, out of wood, made from gold
Praying for their mercy that wont save their souls

Dont you know what means the earth to some or only one
Can mean just nothing nothing nothing to another

There are only dreams like any other
There are only hopes and beliefs one like any other (there are only dreams like any other)
Worth living but not dying for
Living but not dying for not killing for
There are only dreams like any other like any other

To all of those who think that they know
All I can say yes all I can say

One mans joy makes another man weep
Nothing you can do is ever gonna change it
One mans saint is another mans fool
One mans hot is another mans cool

There are only dreams like any other
There are only hopes and beliefs, one like any other
There are only dreams like any other...
