Looking out my window staring
At the things that I can't see
If I listen closely,
I can hear a dying dream

I'm wrapped up in the warmth
Of an unforgiving mind
I'm on vacation in another time

And we can thank the TV
We can thank the men of old
For this legacy of hate
Somehow they have sold

I'm wrapped up in the the warmth
Of an unforgiving game
I'm on vacation in the land of shame

When the pigs are flying
And it's freezing cold in hell
Maybe we'll forgive the children, baby
Only time can tell....yeah, yeah

If I listen closely
I can hear a dying dream
I'm on vacation in the land of shame

We'll be alone together
In a world we call our own
We'll be alone together
In a place that doesn't feel like home

I can hear a dying...
We'll be alone together
We'll leave this land of shame

    General Commenti'll have to agree with the 1st comment.....it seems like its about his isolation from the world being more of a sanctuary where he is protected from disapointment outside the walls of his room

    General Comment"if i listen closely..
    i can hear a dying dream"
    that line is genious to me, somehow i think the song about apathy and solitude all at once
