[J-Dog]
Dead of the night we go into the world unknown
Just let us go
I know that I'm breathing slow, inhaling smoke
I just awoke
A bottle of pills I'm choking down
With dancing demons all around
But I'm hearing sounds
And I know I'm hearing voices now
With all the buildings crashing down
It's Armageddon again
I'll drink the poison from the crown
And make a toast to the end
For all the kids and all the ones and even some
Who've just begun to feel the pain
'Cause they can't stand to stay awake

[Danny]
I see the streets burn every time I fall asleep
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice
That speaks inside of me

[Charlie Scene]
I saw you walk into a room
I saw a face I thought I knew
And all along, it was true
It was me, it wasn't you
I asked myself if it's the truth
A guilty conscience isn't proof
A finger print, well, what's that do?
'Cause gasoline can burn that, too
So hide your knives and save yourself
It's just you, there's no one else
Will I change? The time will tell
I cannot dream, what is this hell?
So maybe I should stop this time
And draw the line, and see the light
But it's too late, I can't this time
I lost my mind, so save the night

[Danny]
I see the streets burn every time I fall asleep
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice
That speaks inside of me

I see the streets burn along with all my memories
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice
That speaks inside of me

If I lay my head down would you admire
The way I can close my eyes tonight
And burn my conscience for the choir

[J3T]
Who's to judge who's insane?
Watch it all wash away
Save us from what we've made
It doesn't die, it only fades
If I can't feel, there isn't pain
Another day, it's all the same
I always pray, I never change
It seems to me, we're all to blame
Push your matches, no more rain
Burn this fucking world today

[Danny]
I see the streets burn every time I fall asleep
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice
That speaks inside of me

I see the streets burn along with all my memories
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice
That speaks inside of me

    To me.. Street dreams is basically.. Taking pills to try to sleep. Try to dream. Trying to escape the pain, if only just for a moment. Then realizing no matter how much you want to, you cant have a dream. Because they've all been destroyed. And every time you close your eyes you see the worst things that could happen. You keep hearing the voice in your head telling you what to do, even though you know its not right. Street dreams... Is the hell hole i call life.

    Street dreams means going to sleep so you can been in your dreams. They cant stand being awake because all it gives them is pain, but if dreaming is better then feeling the pain, why not just stay there. So really, street dreams is about staying in your dreams forever, sleeping to get to them or being awake just not knowing it because your on drugs to get to your dreams.

    This song is really just about losing your mind. Nothing fancy. "i see the street burn every time i fall asleep, i'm losing all my sanity," "who's to judge who's insane," "all along it was true, it was me it wasn't you... " these are all things pointing to a person realising that they've completely lost their mind, as illustrated in the line "i've lost my mind, so save the knife. " even insane people have moments of clarity, and in these moments there are thoughts of suicide. (i know this from a family member who lost her mind and killed herself. ) so those of you that say this song means so much to you... I advise you get some help.

    This song is about people who have so much going on in their life that it's driving them to the point where they are hearing voices in their head to the point where they'd rather be asleep then be awake. To the point where in there dreams they see everyone burning

    This song is to do with
    Psychological disorders - hearing voices
    * psychosis
    * psychotic depression
    * schizophrenia
    * see also hallucinations
    You get these disorders when you've been taking drugs. In this case a tablet. People mix harmful chemicals into the drug so they can make larger doses of the drug not caring if they shove cleaning detergents into it killing their customers. Therefore this song is a message to fans, if your going through this, don't throw your life away. Don't think your alone.
