This is the realm of imagination
Where everything is all perfection
This is the place where nothing brings me down
Until cold hard reality sets in
And even with all that goes wrong
We stand and fight and sing this song
All of my hopes and dreams fall down and die
I stand upon the ground and yell into the sky
This is the song that I sing
This is the symphony of broken dreams
In this paradise in my mind is where I reside
I see the light amidst the dark
You can not have what you want in life
so accept the truth that cuts like a knife and move on with your life
You must now face the day
You will come back
Feel yourself fade back into conscious
Feel your dreams begin to shatter
None of this is real
None of it matters
You must now accept it
You can’t have what you want
Goal number one is to survive
If you can’t achieve that how do you think you can thrive?
That is, the Symphony of Broken dreams
And our voices we will raise
And it goes on and on
