The dream is over

I'm cold and sober

We never made it to the top

We're going nowhere

Took so long to get there

And I'm thinking of giving up.

The boulevard is lined with shattered glass

They sparkle like diamonds

When life is a gas

Our clouds are lined with nickel

Oh luck is so fickle

You see?

Every 'me' that I traded for 'we'

Every dream that was put on layaway

I've ripped too many shirts,

Can no longer save the day.

My armor once shined,

And now it's rusting away.

You're my shining star

And I've faded into grey.
