How many times have you taken advice from a man who hates?
Seemingly selfishless sentiments hiding his war paint
How many nights have you laid awake fearing the next crusade
Did you sleep well last night
What will it take?

The clock on the wall it sees everything
And I worry 'bout it 'cause
It's tick tick ticking opn
It's just ticking away
And I wake
And I want to say
That I'm done with the sleeping
And all is fine
And I wake and
I'm standing here
If it's not a dream
Then I can't believe
That I'm awake

I see a place where the houses are all just exactly alike
All of the cars are one color and there's only one type
Each has the same dog and same cat and same fucking tank of fish
Dinner's the same time and all the same dish

The clock on the wall it sees everything
And I worry 'bout it 'cause
It's tick tick ticking opn
It's just ticking away
And I wake
And I want to say
That I'm done with the sleeping
And all is fine
And I wake and
I'm standing here
Waiting for the day
When we open our eyes
And I wake
And it seems to me
That's it's all or it's nothing
Are we so blind
And I say
Hey is it time to see
This is not a dream
And I can't believe that I'm awake

How many times have you taken advice from a man who hates?
Did you sleep well last night
What will it take?

And I wake
And I want to say
That I'm done with the sleeping
And all is fine
And I wake and
I'm standing here
Waiting for the day
That we open our eyes

And I wake
And it seems to me
That's it's all or it's nothing
Are we so blind
And I say
Hey is it time to see
And I can't believe
That we're standing here
With our hands on our eyes and ears hoping it goes away


This is not a dream
This is not a dream
This is not a dream
