Your voice is down to write a song
Cause he thinks he's got something to say
Innocence thinks it can change the world
But the world keeps getting in the way

It's a small list for the optimist
Who believes that he can fly
And a long line for the pessimist
Who stops him every time he tries

Some people see things as they are and ask why
I dream things that never were
I take my shot and say why not

Hey, hey, hey
This one's for the dreamers
Hey, hey, hey
The doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I'll bend but I ain't breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby you can sleep while I dream

Convicted by conviction
They were carving out your cross
They came to take your measurements
Just to show you who's the boss

Until I reach that promised land I won't stop
When I get there I'll shake your hand
So meet me on that mountaintop

Hey, hey, hey
This one's for the dreamers
Hey, hey, hey
The doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I'll bend but I ain't breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby you can sleep while I dream

Hey, hey, hey
This one's for the breathing
Hey, hey, hey
The dying and the bleeding
Get out of my way
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels I got demons
Baby you can sleep while I dream

I'm not suggesting that you follow me
Well here's a dose of some reality
We'll swing it out of change up
Boy you better shape up
Here comes the wrecking ball
Good morning here's your wake up call

Hey, hey, hey
I feel a change a'coming
Hey, hey, hey
I can see that train a'comin

Hey, hey, hey
This one's for the dreamers
Hey, hey, hey
The doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I'll bend but I ain't breaking
I'm scared but I ain't shaking
Baby you can sleep while I dream

Hey, hey, hey
This one's for the breathing
Hey, hey, hey
The dying and the bleeding
Get out of my way
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels I got demons
Baby you can sleep while I dream

Hey, hey, hey
I feel a change a'coming
Hey, hey, hey
I can see that train a'comin
Oh, can you see it?
Baby you can sleep while I dream
