End of the Dream

Here I stand again at that old grey fence
There’s a part of me that I’m still trying to free
Dogs barking off in the distance pause
When I lean against the rotten wood

Could I run, run, run this place
So far and wide and green
Yes I’ll run, run, nothing to face
And that is the end of the dream

Here I stand again at that old grey fence
Been growing into me and I just can’t get free
The dogs have come and a man with a gun
He says, I thought I told you, now

Better run, run from this place
Your own is the dark in the trees
And when I run, run, the dogs give chase
And that is the end of the dream

Lying everyday in misery
Dying for a way to get out of me

Gotta get through, gotta break that line
Gotta get to where I’m outta confines
Light awaits me, powers undefined
Regenerate me tonight

I stand again at that old grey fence
Now there’s a part of me that I can’t bear to see
The dogs are blind and their man is grown kind, he says
Walk through the clover now

Cause it’s done, done, your life is done
You’ve buried it under the trees
Yes, it’s done, done, there is nothing to come
And that is the end of the dream

Lying everyday in misery
Dying for a way to get out of me

Here I stand again
Been given one more chance
And I see myself
Climb over the rail, and then
I look back on all these years I waited within
And now the fear is opening

Gotta get through, gotta break that line
Gotta get to where I’m outta confines
Light awaits me, powers undefined
Regenerate me tonight

The dream will pass me through
The dream will pass me through
The dream will pass me through
The dream will pass me through
