"Race the Dream" as written by and Matthew Devine....
Love, my angel on silver lines,
So young and so terrified..
Somehow we realized, only the strong survive

Our Doctors say,
"You know the drill. This broke heart won't ever heal.
She needs drugs, and he needs 'em just as bad."

He said:" Be my love, and race the dream together,
Then I'll know they can't tear us apart!"
(Can't tear us apart, can't tear us apart)

Careful, for when it was all the rage,
We were glass managerie.
"Some pills and you'll be fine."
Only the strong survive.

But my love, we'll race the dream together,
Then I'll know they can't tear us apart.

All my love,
The King and Queen together,
Now I know they can't tear us apart.

They can't tear us apart
They can't tear us apart
They can't tear us apart

They can't tear us apart
They can't tear us apart
They can't tear us apart

    General CommentI love this song. Also, I think it has some vague musical similarities to Nirvana's "Smells like Teen Spirit". It's really catchy, that's for sure.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. For some reason, I love the lyric "But my love, we'll race the dream together"
    It means something to me for some reason. But I have a question. Am I the only one that thinks there's about 4 or 5 songs on here that are missing? Such as "courageous"?
