  • You might know of the original sin
    You might know how to play with fire
    But did you know of the murder committed
    In the name of love you thought what a pity

    Dream on white boy (white boy)
    Dream on black girl (black girl)
    Then wake up to a brand new day
    To find your dreams are washed away

    There was a time when I did not care
    And there was a time when the facts did stand
    There is a dream and held by me
    Well I'm sure you had to see it's up in arms

    Dream on white boy (white boy)
    Dream on black girl (black girl)
    Then wake up to a brand new day
    Dream on white boy (white boy)
    Dream on black girl (black girl)
    Then wake up to a brand new day
    To find your dreams have washed away

    Dream on black boy (black boy)
    Dream on white girl (white girl)
    Then wake up to a brand new day
    To find your dreams have washed away

    Dream on, to play with fire
    White boy, black girl
    Dream on, in the name of love
    Black boy, white girl
    Dream on white boy, black girl
    Black boy, white girl

    Dream on
    The name of love, yeah
    You thought what a pity
