Lyrics

[Verse 1] The most familiar room Every implement was leading to you And your homely sense of disarray Never once the same Always rearranged But things would never change In the seam between the window frame Where the jackals preyed on every soul Where they tied you to a pole And stripped you of your clothes [Chorus] I was a dreamer Staring out windows Out onto the main street 'Cause that's where the dream goes [Verse 2] And each time they found fresh meat to chew I would turn away and return to you You would offer me your unmade bed Feed me till I'm fed And read me till I'm read But when the morning came You would catch me at the window again In an eyes-wide-open sleeping state Staring into space With no look upon my face [Chorus] I was a dreamer Staring out windows Out onto the main street 'Cause that's where the dream goes [Verse 3] And when I got older When I grew bolder Out onto the streets I flew Released from your shackles I danced with the jackals And learned a new way to move So before you take this song as truth You should wonder what I'm taking from you How I benefit from you being here Lending me your ears While I'm selling you my fears [Chorus] (I was a dreamer) I'm selling you my fears (Staring out windows) I'm selling you my fears (Out onto the main street) I'm selling you my fears ('Cause that's where the dream goes) I'm selling you my fears I was a dreamer Staring out windows Out onto the main street 'Cause that's where the dream goes
