Lyrics:

   I sat alone with the dreams of children
   Weeping willows and tall dark buildings,
   I've caught a fashion from the dreams of children
   But woke up sweating from this modern nightmare, and

   I was alone, no one was there
   I was alone, no one was there

   I caught a glimpse from the dreams of children
   I got a feeling of optimism
   But woke up to a grey and lonely picture
   The streets below left me feeling dirty, and

   I was alone, no one was there
   I was alone, no one was there

   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight

   I fell in love with the dreams of children
   I saw a vision of all the happy days
   I've caught a fashion from the dreams of children
   But woke up sweating from this modern nightmare, and

   I was alone, no one was there
   I was alone, no one was there

   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   You will choke on your dreams tonight
   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
   Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
   You will crack on your dreams tonight
