Thugs and badmen
Punks and lifers
Doped up interns
Pigs and snitches

Rest your weary heads, all is well

You won't be strip-searched, torn up tonight
You won't be cut up, bleeding tonight
You won't be strung out, cold, shaking to your bones
Wishing you were anywhere else but right here
So dream on

Thieves and muggers
Tricks and hustlers
Cheats and traitors
Scum and low-lives

Rest you weary heads, all is well

You won't be sad or broken tonight
You won't be squealed on, ripped up tonight
You won't be back-stabbed, double-crossed, face down
Teeth knocked out, lying in a gutter somewhere
So dream on

Freaks and junkies
Fakes and phonies
Drunks and cowards
Manic preachers

Rest your weary heads, all is well

You won't be pushed or messed with tonight
You won't be lied to, ruffed up tonight
You won't be insane, paranoid, obsessed
Aimlessly wandering through the dark night
So dream on

    No matter your crime, your sin, or your action, you can be forgiven if you first forgive yourself and have a dream and drive of getting a better future. :)

    The meaning is. It doesn't matter who call you what name, what your reputation is, or what happened to you in life. If you have a dream, you need to follow it. It could be stupid to other people, but if you have one, follow it! If you believe in yourself, you can do it.
