It's time for the crying to stop
Cause I love you
It's time for you to grow up
I want you
And I need you

There's a hole in your soul
Where your heart used to me
All the doors are locked
And you can't find the key
There's fish in the sky
And there's birds in the sea
Cause you want me
And you need me

You're drowning from all of the tears in the sky
It's a bad dream
You can't even close your eyes
It's a bad dream
A bad dream

It's time for the burn in the sky
Cause I'm hungry
It's time for you to let it die
You're lonely
All alone

Tigers in their tanks struggle to get free
Skinny little dogs barking up the wrong tree
Snakes in the grass learn their ABCs
And you need me
And you want me

You're drowning from all of the tears in the sky
It's a bad dream
You can't even close your eyes
It's a bad dream
A bad dream

Screaming from a voice inside
Running but you cannot find
A place
To hide
From the bad dream

There's a hole in your soul
Where your heart used to me
All the doors are locked
And you can't find the key
There's fish in the sky
And there's birds in the sea
And you hate me
But you need me

You're drowning from all of the tears in the sky
It's a bad dream
You can't even close your eyes
It's a bad dream
A bad dream

Screaming from the voice inside
Trying to find a place
Inside
To hide
From the bad dream

The bad, bad
Bad, bad
Bad, bad
Dream

    General CommentThe song is about not being able to let go. Yes, possibly of a relationship.
    Who is singing on this song? It was weird to hear it on the website. Then again, I did have a different image of how this bad was.

    General CommentThis song is interesting. I really like it. Anyone else really like this song? How come everyone says it has something to do with letting go? I thought it was just a song about someone having a bad dream and this is the description of the bad dream.

    General CommentI am not sure if I'm ready to call Katie the next big thing. Personally, I don't think her involvement with the band is that big. She just helped give the lyrics a female perspective (along with her input and voice). So I'm not going to call her the next industrial god, although, if she steps up her game, she could be crowned the industrial goddess.

    But I know for a fact that she didn't do the original lyrics. RAVE did that. Rave fyi, is Dave O.

    She's Canadain, which is cool, cuz so am I. From Calgary.

    March the 4th, Jakalope plays in Toronto! Lovely.
