    Lyrics

    Oh, I'm choking, I'm choking
    On the smoke from this burning house
    I claw and I scrape
    But I can't seem to get out
    But who then, who is this
    That's scratching from the ground
    Oh, it's my world, too
    But whose gold is this I'm digging out?

    When we go, where we go
    When we're dead
    Is the verdict still out?
    Do we get into line
    To line up with those long dead now?
    With the muffled tears of sorrow
    Bones underground
    Is this time our time?
    Yes, it is
    Without or with this shadow of doubt

    I don't want to wake up
    Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
    Oh, it's such a waste child
    To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
    Though I must confess, yes
    My view is a wonder about this
    This love I possess, love
    Must be the Dreams of our Fathers

    I wanna go, I wanna run
    We turn, so sure someone's looking down
    It's haunting me, haunting me
    Leaves us here to get out
    Though I don't believe, I don't believe
    This flavor in my mouth
    Is from my tongue alone
    So bitter I wanna spit it out

    I repeat these words
    They come out
    Under the blue light in the sky
    My empty pages are filling up
    With these wicked lies
    But I hear deep in myself
    An echo, an echo
    Of empty, empty emptiness
    Comes up and swells inside

    I don't want to wake up
    Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
    Oh, it's such a waste child
    To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
    Though I must confess, yes
    My view is a wonder about this
    This love I possess, love
    It must be the Dreams of our Fathers

    Rain on my head
    Rain on my head
    Rain on me
    And then give me air
    Rain on my love
    Again and again
    Why can't I dream you away from me?

    Look here, look here
    Bloated, floating
    Go belly down
    Belly up in the water
    But who is this here that's drowned?
    We followed a drunken man
    He got us all spinning round
    But it's like he swallowed himself
    And didn't leave us a way out

    I don't want to wake up
    Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
    Oh, it's such a shame child
    To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
    Though I must confess, yes
    My view is a wonder about this
    This love I possess, love
    It must be the Dreams of our Fathers

    This love I possess, love
    It must be the Dreams of our Fathers
    This love I possess, love
    It must be the Dreams of our Fathers
    This love I possess, love
    It must be the love of our fathers

    The dreams
    The dreams
    The dreams
    This love I possess love
