I woke up with my feet nailed down
And my head moving the speed of sound
Had a dream I was caught in a maze
And I couldn't find my way back out
Some were born to move mountains around
And some to rot away in jail
I get an itch and when I am scratching
Everything can go to hell

And how far is halfway there? I
Didn't see you on the trail now
Did almost become good enough?
Should a good life be so hard won?
Is that what our dreams have become?

Sometimes when you're shooting an arrow
It can fly across the sky so proud
Well I would go all the way to the sun
If I didn't have to come back down

And how far is halfway there? I
Didn't see you on the trail now
Did almost become I'm good enough?
Should a good life be so hard won?
Is that what our dreams have become?

(Have become)
(Yeah)

Have you got a car? And
Somewhere to sleep?
Someone who loves you?
Something to eat?
I would say you're doing better than most
Though maybe not as well as some

And how far is halfway there? I
Didn't see you on the trail now
Did almost become I'm good enough?
Should a good life be so hard won?
Is that what our dreams have become?

Is that what our dreams have become?

(Ooh ooh ooh)
