It was all just a dream, Oh no
Yet I wish it was real
All my pets they were there and they smiled
Take a ****, it was fine

Everybody's so inviting
They've got in it for me I know
It's not that I don't really love you
It's just that I don't really know
The hateful things you think you want to say
Time will turn them into jokes

Yes it was all just a dream, Oh no
Was it real? I don't know (I hope so )
If it was you were all there with me
Overjoyed and at peace

Here we go, can I play?, can I watch?
He would like one more night in your life
I saw worlds, they don't stop they're like us
They go fast like a sun that's been shot

Everybody at the party
Shouldn't worry if I'm there
Everybody at the party
Shouldn't worry what they wear
'Cause today they'll talk about us
And tomorrow they won't care

This whole life is it a dream? I can't tell
I got up, then I waved then I fell
I recall you were all there with me
Overjoyed and at peace

First time around
Second took so long
Third time's the charm
Circle of fourths

Five days to rehearse
Six to make it work
Seven notes in a scale
Eight in some countries

Nine in fancy keys
Ten is you and friend
Eleven seconds to hell
And of course twelve major chords
