lyrics

Lost in the dream again
Promises of grandeur
Getting beneath our skin
It's so insidious...
Recursive inequity
Collective hallucination
It can be hard to see
Throgh lies that they tell of us
Through lies they tell us of us

And they say you can't get there from here
But we don't know until we try
Swim cross the ocean, fly to the sky, shoot the moon
When we get there we'll find, we've already arrived

Lift up your feet again
You'll get nowhere going nowhere
Dressed like a mannequin
Dreaming the dreamless dream
So listen to what you said
Eternal internal wisdom
Unanticipated
Things are not what they seem
Nothing is as it seems

And they say you can't get there from here
They've underestimate us
Let us tear down the walls in our way
Then there will be nothing to put us up against

Last in a line of kings
First in line for the gallows
Half-truths and whitewashings
Won't protect you for long
So give up the pantomime
The emperor wears no clothing
Looks like your out of time
'Till the end of our song
We've been singing it all along!

And they say you can't get there from here
But who are they? How could they know?
Too many paths obscured by broken dreams
First we overcome and then we overthrow
First we overcome and then we overthrow
