We're just half a dream away
Sitting on our fences
Building up defenses
Making up rules by which we play

We're just half way down the road
Staking our positions
But stupid superstitions
Only give fools too heavy a load

The magpie screeched and my window is shattered
Her body's bruised but her soul's not battered
The fireman tried but the hose was frozen
The cupboard's bare but the door needs closing

We spend half our time away
From being where we want to
And seeing who it's fun to
Not blaming ourselves for our mistakes

We spend half a dream away
Just looking out of windows
Waiting for a signal
Waiting for night to return to day

The tree was bare but the birds were singing
The milk turned sour but my thirst needs quenching
The meat was dead and I need me feeding
The room was cold but the night was freezing

The rainbow frowned when the sun was shining
A baby's snatched on a beautiful morning
A dog runs wild and the brakes are screaming
A church on fire is struck by lightning
The dead man's hands had beautiful fingers
The princess frowned at her lovers mistress
She went insane and poisoned the children
A teacher's drowned and a child is laughing

We're just half a dream away
