 Verse:
 
 Oh, I'm choking, I'm choking
 On the smoke from this burning house
 I claw and I scrape
 But I can't seem to get out
 But who then, who is this
 That's scratching from the ground
 Oh, it's my world, too
 But whose gold is this I'm digging out?
 
 When we go, where we go
 When we're dead
 Is the verdict still out?
 Do we get into line
 To line up with those long dead now?
 With the muffled tears of sorrow
 Bones underground
 Is this time our time?
 Yes, it is
 Without or with this shadow of doubt
 
 Chorus:
 
 [A]I don't want to [Dsus2]wake up
 [Bm]Lost in the Dr[D/F#]eams of our Fathers
 [A]Oh, it's such a [Dsus2]waste child
 [Bm]To live and die for the D[D/F#]reams of our Fathers
 [A]Though I must conf[Dsus2]ess, yes
 [Bm]My view is a wo[D/F#]nder about this
 [A]This love I poss[Dsus2]ess, love
 [Bm]Must be the Dr[D/F#]eams of our Fathers
 
 Verse II:
 
 I wanna go, I wanna run
 We turn, so sure someone's looking down
 It's haunting me, haunting me
 Leaves us here to get out
 Though I don't believe, I don't believe
 This flavor in my mouth
 Is from my tongue alone
 So bitter I wanna spit it out
 
 I repeat these words
 They come out
 Under the blue light in the sky
 My empty pages are filling up
 With these wicked lies
 But I hear deep in myself
 An echo, an echo
 Of empty, empty emptiness
 Comes up and swells inside
 
 Chorus:
 
 I don't want to wake up
 Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
 Oh, it's such a waste child
 To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
 Though I must confess, yes
 My view is a wonder about this
 This love I possess, love
 It must be the Dreams of our Fathers

 [E5]Rain on my h[E5/C#]ead
 [D5]Rain on [A]my hea[A#5]d
 Rain on me
 And then give me air
 Rain on my love
 Again and again
 Why can't I dream you away from me?
 
 Verse III:
 
 Look here, look here
 Bloated, floating
 Go belly down
 Belly up in the water
 But who is this here that's drowned?
 We followed a drunken man
 He got us all spinning round
 But it's like he swallowed himself
 And didn't leave us a way out
 
 Chorus:
 
 I don't want to wake up
 Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers
 Oh, it's such a shame child
 To live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers
 Though I must confess, yes
 My view is a wonder about this
 This love I possess, love
 It must be the Dreams of our Fathers
 This love I possess, love
 It must be the Dreams of our Fathers
 This love I possess, love
 It must be the Dreams of our Fathers
 This love I possess, love
 It must be the love of our fathers
 
 End: A Dsus2 Bm D/F#
