I woke up and my dream was alive
But dying
It was dark it was still it was calm
It took a moment to think
Why I ever started
Another moment to put my clothes on

I tried to sing but the song
Was a little broken
It was here it was there it was wrong
Took a moment to be who I thought
Was talking
Another moment to put the face on

All the ins and outs and how
Am I supposed to know?
When to give of myself
And when to close the door?

Sometimes I want to just walk through the door
And holler
Kick a table and pull someone’s hair
Get arrested and call someone
To get a dollar
Get released and start all over again

I am NOT a free man
Don’t put that on me
I was born in prison
Trapped in this body

I woke up in a dream
There was skin growing all over me
There were ships sinking into the sea
Consumed by the industry
But I can’t seem to get you to care
It’s the truth but you’re barely aware
Yeah you’re cute
But in your heart
You’re scared
That’s the truth and you’re barely aware

This is your first day
First hour anyway
What happens from here is a choice
A push
A pull
A stone’s throw away

I woke up in a dream
There was skin growing all over me
There were ships sinking into the sea
Controlled by the industry
But I can’t seem to get you to care
It’s the truth but we’re barely aware
Yeah we’re cute
But in our hearts we’re scared
That’s the truth but we’re barely aware

And I just wanna get you to care
It’s the truth and you’re already there
Every soul has a cross to bear
That’s the truth and we’re already there
