DREAMS OF OUR FATHERS
By: Dave Matthews Band

Oh, Iím choking, Iím choking
On the smoke from this burning house
I claw and I scrape
But I canít seem to get out
But who then, who is this
Thatís scratching from the ground
Oh, itís my world, too
But whose gold is this Iím digging out?

When we go, where we go
When weíre dead
Is the verdict still out?
Do we get into line
To line up with those long dead now?
With the muffled tears of sorrow
Bones underground
Is this time our time?
Yes, it is
Without or with this shadow of doubt

I donít want to wake up
Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
Oh, itís such a waste child
To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
Though I must confess, yes
My view is a wonder about this
This love I possess, love
Must be the Dreams of our Fathers

I wanna go, I wanna run
We turn, so sure someoneís looking down
Itís haunting me, haunting me
Leaves us here to get out
Though I donít believe, I donít believe
This flavor in my mouth
Is from my tongue alone
So bitter I wanna spit it out

I repeat these words
They come out
Under the blue light in the sky
My empty pages are filling up
With these wicked lies
But I hear deep in myself
An echo, an echo
Of empty, empty emptiness
Comes up and swells inside

I donít want to wake up
Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
Oh, itís such a waste child
To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
Though I must confess, yes
My view is a wonder about this
This love I possess, love
It must be the Dreams of our Fathers

Rain on my head
Rain on my head
Rain on me
And then give me air
Rain on my love
Again and again
Why canít I dream you away from me?

Look here, look here
Bloated, floating
Go belly down
Belly up in the water
But who is this here thatís drowned?
We followed a drunken man
He got us all spinning round
But itís like he swallowed himself
And didnít leave us a way out

I donít want to wake up
Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
Oh, itís such a shame child
To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
Though I must confess, yes
My view is a wonder about this
This love I possess, love
It must be the Dreams of our Fathers

This love I possess, love
It must be the Dreams of our Fathers
This love I possess, love
It must be the Dreams of our Fathers
This love I possess, love
It must be the love of our fathers

The dreams
The dreams
The dreams
This love I possess love
