  • I'm walking through a dream
    I'm walking through the finest place I've ever seen
    Hey man, won't you wake me up?
    Said, "Hey man, won't you wake me up?"
    Wake me up
    I'm walking through the fire
    Defiant on the wire, burning up my desire
    Hey man, won't you come, come give me a gun?
    Help me blow the lights right out of the sun

    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Wake me up

    (I'm walking through a dream)
    Wake me up
    (Hey man, won't you wake me up?)
    Wake me up

    I'm dancing on the screens
    I'm dancing in the mountains where I've always been
    Hey man, won't you wake me up?
    Said, "Hey man, won't you wake me up?"
    Wake me up
    I'm kicking down the doors
    I'm climbing up the walls of the house that's yours
    Hey man, won't you come, come give me a gun?
    Help me blow the lights right out of the sun

    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Wake me up
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"

    We're dancin' on the serpents, we're dancin' on the coals
    Deny your own expression, you deny the things you know
    We're livin' through the ages
    We're dancing on the tiles
    Commit to any handshakes
    Or believe a Duchenne smile
    I'm burning all my bridges
    I'm pulling up the ropes
    Deleting all the codes
    No, I'm not that man you know
    You walk into a trap
    Then you walk into your youth

    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life (wake me up)
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life (wake me up)
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life (wake me up)
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life (wake me up)
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life
    You're living all that life (said, "Wake me up")

    Said, "Wake me up"
    Said, "Wake me up"
