The Dream Is Over – Van Halen

I see the power
Changing hands
Rising from the streets
A self-made businessman
Knows how the system can be beat

Are we lost in a race and
Have no place to go
The road to destruction
Is all we need to know

‘Cause it’s a rip-off
We’re stepped on and cheated
We’re flat stone-cold lied to
But we’re not defeated, no

It’s easy money
It’s a way out
Join the family
No middleman
No IRS
Your ticket out of poverty

Are we lost in a race and
I hold faith from a string
Lookin’ for a direction
Reachin’ out for anything

Chorus:
So dream another dream
This dream is over
Dream another dream
This dream is over
Dream another dream
This dream is over
Over, yeah
So dream another dream

It’s a rip-off
Stepped on and cheated
Flat stone-cold lied to
We’re not defeated, no

(Chorus)
