"Lien on Your Dreams" as written by Peter Hayes and Robert Turner....
There's a lien on your dreams
That keeps you going under
And a hole in the floor
That drops us all together
You can fight all you like
There's no way to hide
All the lines on your face
Show you've got no place in here

As long as the setting sun will shine
As long as the setting sun will shine
As long as you fight!

But it's the same every day
It drives the world insane
And the lies of mankind
Burn you up inside
But it hurts and what's worse
There's no way to reverse
When your mind wants to start
Pulling you apart, baby

'Cause I needed more, and I need it more
Will you satisfy
I needed more, I needed more
But this is more than I ever wanted

It's a joke and we hope
Your pleading from a rope
There's a sound comin' down
That burns you to the ground
But they feast while you sleep
It marks you like a beast
But they lie through their eyes
How long can you take it, girl

'Cause I needed more, and I need it more
Will you satisfy
I needed more, and I needed more
But this is more than I ever wanted to believe in

It's a shame how we pay
But love is not a game
And it works when it hurts
But nothin' kills the pain
It's a gas while it lasts
It's knocks you on your ass
Without passion, you're a fashion
How long can you fake it, girl

'Cause I needed more, and I need it more
Will you satisfy
I needed more, and I needed more
But this is more than I ever wanted to believe in

You're all I came here for
You are my lonely soul
You're all I came here for
You are my lonely soul

    General CommentI have actually used this song to describe the recent separation from my wife. I believe that, either soley or within a union with another person, you set goals for yourself. But when you let greed overtake your life (drugs, infidelity, etc), you are basically holding off your dreams and goals for a time farther in the future. You will not truly own your dreams until you are truly focused, espcecially with united with another person. Both parties have to be focused on the same mission in life.

    General Commentlien: "A charge upon real or personal property for the satisfaction of a debt"

    i think it's about society controlling peoples actions, or something like that

    General CommentI like Vilvodka's interpretation and it help me understand the song more, and I think it's about putting your dreams on hold while in a relationship for the sake of of it, but later on destroying the relationship because dreams don't die and people feel unfulfilled as a result and blame the relationship for it.
