  • Be careful what you dream of
    It may come up and surprise you
    I can't confess my life's a mess
    I've come to idolise you

    You liken it to walking on hot coals
    I'll keep my boots on
    Wisen up and fly straight
    There's a shape on the horizon

    In a hollow horse I'll steal my way
    Inside your guarded heart
    So selfishly the needs I harbour
    When we are apart

    My past strung out behind me,
    Contradiction and disaster
    I'm in search of charity,
    A union I could master

    We'll be as we are
    When all the fools
    Who doubt us fade away
    Fortune deep and wide

    Intimidated, restless in the wait
    Things I chose to value
    I no longer have a use for
    I ridicule myself for all the things

    Those symbols stood for
    When vanity has played a part
    In every leader's downfall
    Wait to storm the gates, what's left

    Undone to hang around for
    We'll be as we are
    When all the fools
    Who doubt us fade away

    Fortune deep and wide
    Intimidated, restless in the wait
