"Worse Dreams" as written by and Chris J Cornell....
Let’s run around you now and let it fall apart
Put it back again and find never it beats but it’s not the same
And you’ve never been this sure just how it looked when it started
Turned around again now and do it all over and over

I get down
From a bad dream
When it’s gone
Worse dreams are born

Spinning you around in a fire
By the old one and free

Everybody in sit down and keep on holding on
Throw your arms around, black clouds 'round them up
Raise walking bodies in the ground right now bounce it up
Feeling warm and hanging on the tail of the sunrise that you can’t let go

I get down
From a bad dream
When it’s gone
Worse dreams are born

I get down
From a sad dream
When it’s gone
Worse dreams are born

I get down
From a bad dream
When it’s gone
Worse dreams are born

I get down
From a sad dream
When it’s gone
Worse dreams are born

Worse dreams are born
Worse dreams are born
Worse dreams are born

Let’s go around
Let’s go around

    My InterpretationThis song is very much dream inspired, the lyrics reflect that throughout. So really the lyrics are describing a dreamscape. According to dreammoods.com a "Doll" in a dream refers to lightheartedness and fun. My understanding is, if that "Doll" is in a sad dream (or bad dream), the idea is turned on its head. Therefore, the dream becomes worse. Quite simple really.
