dream state

like a dusty memory
linen white with a shimmer
she came to visit me
faded by dreams gone astray
faster than a runaway train
that was never meant to stay

when it seems like it's all gone wrong
and time can heal and harm
it's written in every love song
some win, many lose
the odds are well stacked
and sends you reaching for the booze

from the rivers grand canyon
through the forest of mystery
to the elusive sandman
somethings are hard to reach
no matter how hard you try
you can only get there in your sleep

chorus##
it's a dream state
no love or hate
no fire and no escape
it's an idyllic world
where boy meets girl
hearts carved in oak
wake up and smell the joke
(no love or hate,it's a dream state)

call me bitter and twisted
it may be so
good luck MR I'm not listed
call it what you want,don't make it so
fortune or fate
is it a rope or a tow

is it a lift or a stair
a mountain or a well
evil in the air
fire with no smoke
river or a Brooke
ain't it fun to provoke?

dizzy thoughts in a sane head
can this be love at last
does it make you glad your not dead
do we wake just to dream
bring a smile to a tear
all is not what it seems


chorus##
it's a dream state
no love or hate
no fire and no escape
it's an idyllic world
where boy meets girl
hearts carved in oak
wake up and smell the joke
(no love or hate,it's a dream state)

BEGIN AT THE END

put the coffee on early in the morning
the air is so stale,feels like a warning
your heart is where your head should be
can't shake the feeling you wanna be free

catch a glimpse in the mirror
she's so fine your onto a winner
did you hear a lie in a shadow of a whisper
as you wonder who was the last to kiss her

#chorus#
pack your bags and take a hike
you know in your heart
it just don't feel right
you know what to do my friend
just take a deep breath
and begin at the end

the heart of a mountain weeps snow
the hardest part is letting go
when truth is a twisted thorn
it's so easy to sit and mourn

no phoenix will rise from these ashes
everyone's had a love that crashes
hold your head high,no guilt or shame
bourn of ashes was the flame

#chorus#
pack your bags and take a hike
you know in your heart
it just don't feel right
you know what to do my friend
just take a deep breath
and begin at the end
