If you stand for something
You must give it a try
To live through a tango
Our complicated lies

I'm dreaming
But this is the real thing
I'm dreaming
Of much better things

It's not what I thought you had
It's not the life I thought we had
Ohh...

Conventionalism
Covers the divine
We miss the picture
Our eyes open wide

I'm dreaming
But this is the real thing
I'm dreaming
Of much better things

It's not the world I thought we had
It's not the life I thought we had
Oh yeah...

I'm dreaming
But this is the real thing
I'm dreaming
Of much better things

I'm dreaming
Oh, this is the real thing
I'm dreaming
Of much better things

I'm dreaming, oh
I'm dreaming...
Lalalalala...
Babumbumbumbum...

    Thats the best lyric from the whole album.

    People do what they're told every day, and don't like people who don't, but by doing that, they're missing out on some beautiful things & beautiful people.

    The narrator is 'dreaming', but realizes that its just a dream and the world may never change (but this is the real thing), but still keeps dreaming of a better world.
