We had dreams, they were better off dreams
So you kept them away from me
But the time will come, yes, the time will come and we'll need them
This ain't a scene, it's just a generation caught in between
It's just a generation caught in between
You said "Someday they'll need us"

This ain't a scene, it's just a place to be
We won't be settled down until we've seen everything
That we've payed to see
Well, I, I can't bank, I'm somebody's mind to change
I want to know right now how long you've spent being awake

Well, I was wiping all the sleep from my eyes
And you, you were talking about some other time
That you wish you could've been alive
This ain't a scene, it's just a place to be
This ain't a scene, it's just a place for you and me and we can meet

You said "I, I can't bank, I'm somebody's mind to change,
I need to know right now how long you've spent being awake"
But, before you invest, oh you should find a safer bet
And don't you celebrate now because you haven't found him yet

You said "Bury a hole*, it was better buried alive
Oh, we'll call you on the phone, to see if you made it back alive
Oh, well I, I can't bank, I'm somebody's mind to change
I need to know right now how long you've spent being awake
I need to know right now.

    Lyric CorrectionHere's how I hear it. Awesome band. Love. This song breaks my heart.


    We had dreams, they were better off dreams
    So you kept them away from me
    But the time will come, yeah, the time will come and we'll need them
    This ain't a scene, it's just a generation caught in between
    Oh, it's just a generation caught in between
    You said "Someday they'll need us"

    This ain't a scene, it's just a place to be
    We won't settle down until we've seen everything
    That we've payed to see
    I, I can't bank, on somebody's mind to change
    I need to know right now how long you expect me to wait

    Well I was wiping all the sleep from my eyes
    And you, you started talking about some other time
    That you wish we could've been alive
    This ain't a scene, it's just a place to be
    Oh, this ain't a scene, it's just a place for you and me and we can meet

    Well I, I can't bank, on somebody's mind to change,
    I need to know right now how long you expect me to wait
    But before you invest, oh you should find a safer bet
    And don't you celebrate now because you haven't found him yet

    Buried alone, it was better than buried alive
    I will call you on the phone, to see if you made it back alright
    I, I can't bank, on somebody's mind to change
    I need to know right now how long you expect me to wait
    I wanna know right now
