Let this dagger bury deep
i'm not afraid to bleed
through all the spaces in-between
that never meant anything
cause I gave everything I had
to build a promised land
a place where proudly I could stand
this castle made of sand
is slipping through my hands

the dream is over now
our hearts have been misguided - lost somehow
the dream is over now
our fate has been decided - it's all been lost somehow

was this a bledding or a curse
z message well rehearsed
means to justify the end
or only what could have been
I'll bury every word i've said
in the city of the dead
drown this masterpiece in red
the color in my head
this tired skin i'll shed

the dream is over now
our hearts have been misguided - lost somehow
the dream is over now
our fate has been decided - it's all been lost somehow

the water's rushing in
we're fighting over the remains
of a scene too crowded to repair
we're dying to defend
a feeling that has lost it's way
cause the dream's no longer there

    General CommentI definitely think this song is about the American Dream and how its dead, not what it used to be.
