Wake me up if I'm dreaming
put me to sleep if I'm awake
I hear the earth mother screaming
she's nearly had all she can take.

People where are we going
why must we get there so fast
we do things without really knowing
how long the side effects will last.

Slow down people
where are we going so fast
there's still time to change the road we're on take
the less traveled path.

What kind of sanity is this
where phony values reign supreme
when you're successful if you're rich
we call it the American dream.

And in this land of sleepwalkers
what will cause us to awake
and find the dream is really a nightmare
leaves us unconscious in it's wake
