Track Name: They Are Only Dreams
I am trapped by this building
This house is on fire, I can hear my dog screaming
Next to me is my high school bully
Into his car to the liquor store
I say no thanks but he gives me more
More CPR than is worth fighting for
On the way back to the house
His face melts and he screams
Given the current situation I did the best that I could
Well, I guess that foes can be better people, like frenemies.

Wait, there is a light
But I'm too big for it - It is shrinking in size
I see your Dad, he just laughs
I see your Mom and she wants my autograph
I trip with an awkward smile
Only my nose makes it through
Given this current situation it's time to smell the roses
And drink to celebration
While the rest of me, craps out and decomposes, fades away

Greener grass and bluer skies, sifted through your conscious lies
Well it's not to say that I'm not a better person
But it would be nice to still want what I have, not just what I want

Remember they are only dreams
Never quite as it seems to the untrained eye
I come around and face reality when it appears to me
I throw it up on trial
