Dream of me… we can live how we want now… this world
has no boundaries. We shall never wake up. Lets kill
them all, let’s torch the world. This is for us. Let’s
meet them for the first time… this isn’t awkward is
it? It can’t be… there are no worries… all we have to
do is cut the switch… wake the fuck up… this is all
I’ve ever dreamed… this dream is all I’ve ever wanted,
cared for, I only hope things haven’t changed when I
awake… life doesn’t work like this… once a night my
life is “yours to create”… mold me and make me the
child of the night, with all the ambition in the
world… my hate and worries cease to be… my fucked up
little head controls me… “dream is destiny”… wake the
fuck up… I kill, I love, I end nightmares, I begin
romances, I travel through sexual situations, I only
hope to never wake… I only hope, cause the exterior
world is not making sense anymore… I tend to get
scared… wake the fuck up… no… “Whatever you do, don’t
be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we
could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are
just starting”… make this dream reality… love you… “If
the world that we are forced to accept is false and
nothing is true, then everything is possible”… make
this dream reality

    General Comment"This song is inspired by the movie "waking life". It¹s about how interesting and weird dreams can be. You can live any life you want in dreams and sometimes it seems better than life itself. The sentences are very random and sometimes don¹t seem to make sense. I did this on purpose because when you dream, everything is very random. So I wrote it like it was a dream. The subject of dreams has really interested me lately, and I have a newer song written focusing on that subject as well. -tommy" -------- betweentheburiedandme.com

    General CommentI'm not sure exactly what the term "Shevanel Cut a Flip" means but Tommy mentions Shevanel and Plip in the song Mordecai (also an amazing song). On the website Tommy explains that Shevanel and Plip were a homeless person and his pet that he had met in some city that looked like the saddest, poorest beings on the planet but actually were some of the happiest beings that he had ever met. He is referring to Shevanel in the title of this song because even though he may have a sad reality, his dreams could be everything he ever wanted and perhaps that was why Shevanel seemed so happy.

    General CommentThe lyrics in quotations are taken directly from the moving waking life.

    General CommentI've never seen waking life but based on descriptions it makes a perfect connection to the lyrics. I love this song because its insanely unusual and rare and in a way, balanced out. Listening to the first 3 1/2 minutes makes me think "man this song is brutal as fuck" because it's INSANELY spastic and while tommy is still a great vocalist, in the first 2 albums he had psychotic range! Anyway after my ears were raped by the intensity of the first few minutes, I was intrigued by a 6 minute ballad section, where the last sentence is sung beautifully. Do I think a 6 minute ballad is what you should hear after a 3 1/2 minute deathcore section? YES!!! Brilliant idea.

    General CommentAlso the second wake the fuck up sounds like "WAIT TO BURN YOUUUU!" lol. And the part after that where all the lyrics overlap is so awesome.

    General CommentOk, now after I've seen waking life, i listened to this song and most of it made sense. And during the movie I recognized some of the lines from this song. Waking life is such an unusual movie and mostly insane but in general I liked it. The funny thing is my mom HATED this song and walked out of the room after watching half an hour of waking life. It's a love or hate movie, but anyway, this song is even more badass.
