do you really think
you can be given everything
handed on a golden plate
laced with diamonds
and slathered with jewels

could you please tell me
what life it is you live
cause i'd love to hear
if you could share your secrets

or is it just your imagination
that makes you believe all this
lying back and making everyone else work
you really call this bliss?

so tell me now
what kind of dream
are you refusing to awake from?
planning it all out
is the hardest work you've done in your life
i'm so happy to know
that we are nothing alike

pain in my back
the sweat burning my eyes
you look from the comfort of your own home
to me it comes as no surprise

they keep promising change
something we can believe
but how can we trust it
when i just can't leave

someday you'll regret
never working a single hour of a day
cause i'll be alive and strong
while you're dead and on your way

so tell me now
what kind of dream
are you refusing to awake from?
planning it all out
is the hardest work you've done in your life
i'm so happy to know
that we are nothing alike

now years have passed
i've forgotten your face
but i thought i saw you on the street
what a disgrace

lying in the dumspters
begging for a dime
you haven't changed much
but for work you've finally got time

so tell me now
what kind of dream
are you refusing to awake from?
planning it all out
is the hardest work you've done in your life
i'm so happy to know
that we are nothing alike
