lyrics

I stood naked in the dark

Waiting to begin a thousand other nights

My heart stood still

It’s too late to be afraid

There had been worse times

There had been close times

Pot times junk times

In that moment my life didn’t fail me
My will is stronger than my flesh

And if it can destroy you it can save you too

Help me out I’m losing time

Help me out I’m losing time

We are dreamers

We are believers

We are dreamers

We are future

You are ignorant of all it takes
For me to stand here

Hate for you drinkers

You talkers

You glass tappers

Sing-alongers

Foot pounders

The eager

The bored

The hip

The square

All those who paid and expect value in return

I gave you a vision once

And you expect me to have it still?
Like a birthmark or a scar

I’m a victim of my past

Help me out I’m losing time

Help me out I’m losing time

We are dreamers

We are believers

We are dreamers

We are future

I am here

I utter my truth in the half dark

In the thronged rooms where everyone’s breath
Tastes of cigarettes and alcohol

Where people leave the day behind them at the door
I stand with you sensation hunters

Impervious to shame or pride

Now I look out

Over a wall of weakness

My pride has nothing left to wound but myself
I’m too old to walk away

Too drunk to make it

Too sick to be afraid

One has to destroy something to create something new

And you are my friend more than anyone
Candy, will you dance with me?

We are dreamers

We are believers

We are dreamers

We are future
