last night i dreamt that they dropped a bomb.
oh, the seas ran dry and the winds had calmed.
the skyscrapers fell and crumbled to dust,
and the skeletons of steel were covered in rust.

and everything i loved and feared had all at once disappeared.

colors were drained straight from the sky,
and nothing living had survived.
mountains were merely removed from the earth,
and silver and gold had lost all its worth.

and everything i loved and feared had all at once disappeared.
oh, everything i loved and feared had all at once disappeared.

i woke from the dream in a cold cold sweat.
i was full of doubt and deep regret.
for suddenly it was all so clear to me;
there was nothing left in which to believe.

and everything i loved and feared had all at once disappeared
oh, everything i loved and feared had all at once disappeared.

    General CommentInspired by a nightmare that Dallas had once.
    Apocalyptic scenario - wonderful imagery.

    Lyric CorrectionI just added capitalization as well as removing the d from ran.

    Last night I dreamt that they dropped a bomb.
    Oh, the seas ran dry and the winds had calmed.
    The skyscrapers fell and crumbled to dust,
    And the skeletons of steel were covered in rust.

    And everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared.

    Colors were drained straight from the sky,
    And nothing living had survived.
    Mountains were merely removed from the earth,
    And silver and gold had lost all its worth.

    And everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared.
    Oh, everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared.

    I woke from the dream in a cold, cold sweat.
    I was full of doubt and deep regret.
    For suddenly it was all so clear to me;
    There was nothing left in which to believe.

    And everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared
    Oh, everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared.
