As Scotland lies dreamin'
No fear today
The dreams everlasting
But the summers decay
They asked me to ask you
Why you went away
Your heart wasn't in it
So why should I try
To keep you holdin' me and feelin' me?

Apart from the altar
Distorting you time
Their hands out to greet you
Disguising their crimes
They'll meet you on Monday
to be trained by a fool
They'll withhold explanations
Till they put you through it
Till they've been schoolin' you and foolin' you

And all my life, I'll never see
The evidence is right there before me
They weave it in the tapestry
The CGI and the BBC

And all my life, I'll never see
The evidence is right there before me
They weave it in the tapestry
The CGI and the BBC

Is there something down in you
that pours from the heart
Get replaced by a mistuned and discordant start?
All the things that you mean turn to dust in the streets
Are replaced by the din of a thousand heartbeats
And you stand here before me and say it's okay
Do you really think that I was born yesterday?
And I know that you mean well and want me to win
But I think you should start by just lettin' me in

Beyond all of the black clouds
But when they're on sun
Your duty is clear now
Tell everyone
There's too much to lose now
And so much to see
And they'll take all the good things
Away from me
Don't take the good things all away from me


And all my life, I'll never see
The evidence is right there before me
They weave it in the tapestry
The CGI and the BBC
And all my life, I'll never see
The evidence is right there before me
They weave it in the tapestry
The CGI and the BBC

And all my life, I'll never see
The CGI and the BBC
And all my life, I'll never see
The CGI and the BBC

And all my life, I'll never see
The CGI and the BBC
And all my life, I'll never see
The CGI and the BBC

And all my life, I'll never see
The evidence is right there before me
They weave it in the tapestry
The CGI and the BBC

And all my life, I'll never see
The evidence is right there before me
They weave it in the tapestry
The CGI and the BBC

Scotland lies dreamin'
(All my life I'll never see)
Scotland lies dreamin'
Scotland lies dreamin'
It's lost all its feelin'
Scotland lies dreamin'
Dreams everlastin'
Scotland lies dreamin'
Dreams everlastin'
