Karii Kariiyo - The Dream Is Over

-

Let's hear it for the nice days (but)
the dream is over now.
-
I was in love with the most prettiest girl there ever was
the biggest mistake I made was when I lost her and not
only did I lose her but I buried myself deeper..
As I sit alone, I realize I must accept the fact
-
I'm feeling
nebulous, about our first encounter, it's like I'm moments from these irrefutable, tenacious-like grips on my pastoral qualities, it's like I'm living in a bad dream.
-
Sunken ships are prettier than ones still on the sea,
this is true to an extent but mostly just to me...
Drunken nights are great for leaving everything behind,
locked inside a vault downstairs and guarded by some lions.
-
Confrontations, shouting slurs it all just hurts my head.
I don't know what to say so I just stay quiet instead.
Salutations dear old friend, welcome to the end.
The place where all your greatest fears blend into some monstrous figure
(that you thought you laid to waste back in early '98)
-
Let's hear it for those good times (but)
the dream is over, now.
-
I had ambition that I would be the next Kurt Cobain,
I had the misery but not the record deal.
Even my own fantasies lost their own self identity and
as I sit alone, I wave my white flag in the air...
-
because I'm...
nebulous, about our first encounter, it's like I'm moments from these irrefutable, tenacious-like grips on my pastoral qualities, it's like I'm living in a bad dream.
-
Dull faces on a great scale, I see
Doll faces on the weight scale, I see
-
Sunken ships are prettier than ones still on the sea,
this is true to an extent but mostly just to me...
-
Confrontations, shouting slurs it all just hurts my head.
I never know what to say so I'll just stay quiet instead.
Salutations dear old friend, welcome to the end.
The place where all your greatest fears blend into some monstrous figure
(that you thought you destroyed when you were just a little boy)
-
The dream is over, now...
-
Damn these people, If only I existed...

Well, there'd be no more...crying.
Well, there'd be no more...lying.
There'd be no more weapons. No more guns.

Damn these people, the dream has gone...
