about

Living in the Dream captures surreal and subconscious perceptions of post industrial city living, inspired by traffic jams, monolothic buildings, busy streets, and urban routines.

lyrics

Travelling through the night in the urban chaos
I’m blinded by the light of the neon chaos
Living in the dream, all the world is turning ‘round on me Caught by the machine, all the world is burning down on me, burning on me

All the skies ablaze in the urban chaos
I’m wandering through the maze of the metal chaos
Living in the dream, all the world is turning ‘round on me Caught by the machine, all the city’s burning down on me, burning on me

I knew you weren’t waiting for me, for me
I could tell by the scent you wore
Wish I was waving my hands like the clouds
Wish I was catching your eye through the crowds

It’s Thursday, in November.
I’m lost in the gridlock of the rush hour in the rain. The banks are all burning, the city’s in riots.
The chemical darkness is raging
Out on the horizon a train escapes into the night.
A thousand lives pass as silhouettes on the skyline, But there is no escape, there’s no way out.
We’re all lost in the metal gridlock.
It’s Thursday, in November, and I’m living in the dream

Living in the dream, all the world is turning Caught by the machine, all the city’s burning Burning, burning, burning, burning, burning In the machine

And all the moments you turned to take my hand Are they all washed away like patterns in the sand? Wish I was hanging my dreams on the clouds
Wish I was catching your eye through the crowds

Living in the dream, all the world is turning Caught by the machine, all the city’s burning Burning, burning, burning, burning, burning In the machine
In the machine In the machine
