  • Dream awake (dream awake), said get 'em and get 'em and go aah, get 'em and get 'em and go aah
    Oh, dream-a-dream awake (dream awake)
    Dream awake, said get 'em and get 'em and go aah (dream awake)

    Dream awake make no mistake
    Strive to be alive most everyday
    You can listen stereo or monotone
    Mega phone, mellow drone DJ with delay
    Relay super surfer high stereo sound

    Radio station super space nation fight the foe
    This one's about to blow up
    Two flews over the cuckoo's nest and won't rest
    Bless up with no vest with a shield to protect

    Smash lies, wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Wake up, stand up and jump off to this (some piece of mind from the daily grind)
    (Smash lies) wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this

    Dream awake (dream awake), said get 'em and get 'em and go aah, get 'em and get 'em and go aah
    Oh, dream-a-dream awake (dream awake)
    Dream awake, said get 'em and get 'em and go aah (dream awake)

    Dream awake, find lines to move guys rely on a vision
    Filled with rhymes, the room is filled with villains and ghosts
    We toast and coast to the next host
    Many boast of battles won and the day is fading fast

    The work is passed through the self-destruction
    Why you wanna burn, why you wanna drown?
    Why you wanna die by the highway?
    The front lines intertwine

    Smash lies, wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this (some piece of mind from the daily grind)
    Stand up, said wake up, stand up

    We'll bounce over beats and rock shows
    So fast so slow never know where the day may go
    Bounce and we bubble over hills and valleys

    We go through the fields of green in-between destinies
    Or just get high, nah there's no need (said wake up, stand up and jump off to this)
    No need to feed on the scraps of the enemy (said wake up, stand up and jump off to this)
    Where's the bad guy, on the inside one day I might try

    Smash lies, wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this (wake up, up, jump off to this)
    Smash lies, wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, stand up and jump off to this
    Dream-a-dream awake, dream awake
    Some peace of mind from the daily grind
    Smash lies, dream awake
    Stand up and jump off to this
    Said wake up, dream awake, jump off to this
