We killed the dream!
Yeah!
We killed the...

Here we are, where the fire starts
And then it burns forever
Take a good idea, add in greed and fear
And now our sons, they all got tempers

This is a requiem, sing it

We, we're wasting time
And we, we're running blind

Nails dug in so deep our faces wince
But we regain composure
Buried teeth in skin, with knuckles sliced and red
From sitting quiet in the corner

This is a love song, sing it

We, we're wasting time
And we, we're running blind

Familiarity breeds contempt
And we, we killed the dream
We killed the American dream
We killed the American dream

I'm getting dead tired, oh
Been alone in a meadow, love
You've been out for an hour, oh
Well, I know
Your hollow head's been dreaming for you
Screaming a storm while you lie in plain view
Taking liquids that would make you desirable
Well, I know
Well, I know

Sing it!

We, we're wasting time
And we, we're running blind

Familiarity breeds contempt
And we, we killed the dream
We killed the American dream
We killed the American dream
We killed the American dream!

We killed the dream!
Yeah!
We killed the..
