"Once Upon a Time" as written by Corey Woods, Y and T. Washington....
I am scorned in this heavenly scheme
With the stench of destruction
I'm a reaver of beautiful dreams
And she knows I'm on the edge, sacrilege

(Push me over)

Tell me once upon a time
I close my eyes and see myself reborn
Righting the wrong
I won't stay to stand in line
And wait for God to shine all over me
I wait for the storm

I am you and I know that you heard
You and I are the last at the end of the world
Then we talk, we run, and we hide
Then so what, the human race suffocates?

(Leave me breathless)

Tell me once upon a time
I close my eyes and see myself reborn
Righting the wrong
I won't stay to stand in line
And wait for God to shine all over me
I wait for the storm
I wait for the storm
I wait for the storm

Move along
Through the ashes of a dream
Move along
I see myself in you again

Tell me once upon a time
I close my eyes and see myself reborn
Righting the wrong
I won't stay to stand in line
And wait for God to shine all over me
I wait for the storm

    General CommentHow can no one have commented on this song? It's a masterpiece!! Amazing synth solo at the beginning and a catchy chorus.

    My InterpretationIt seems like the character portrayed is surrounded by chaos in the real world but then in his dreams he is basically "the one" and doesn't need anyone to help him stop all the wrong in the world.
