Right where you are standing
The dinosaurs did a dance
The Indians tell a story
Some have come to pass

The Indians had a legend
War was never known
The white man came and killed them
No they're not really gone

We live in the city of dreams
We ride through this highway of fire
We awake and find it gone
Remember this, our favorite town

Germany and Europe
And Southern U.S.A.
They made this little town here
That we live in to this day

The children of the white man
Saw Indians on TV
Glimpses of the legend
How their cities were a dream

We live in the city of dreams
We ride through this highway of fire
We awake and find it gone
Remember this, our favorite town

Civil War is over
And World Wars I and II
They can learn to live together
And dreams still come true

Underneath the concrete
A hundred thousand lifetimes
Lord in a legends of story
Hundred dreams live and die

We live in the city of dreams
We ride through this highway of fire
We awake and find it gone
Remember this

We live in the city of dreams
We ride through this highway of fire
We awake and find it gone
Remember this, our favorite town
