I see the power changin' hands
Risin' from the streets
A self-made businessman
Knows how the system can be beat

Oh, we're the lost generation
Have no place to go
The road to destruction
Is all we need to know

'Cuz it's a rip-off
We're stepped on and cheated
We're flat stone cold lied to
We're not defeated, no

It's ah, easy money
It's a way out
Join the family
No middleman, no IRS
Your ticket out of poverty

Oh, we're the lost generation
I hold fate from a string
Lookin' for a direction
Reachin' out for anything

So, dream another dream
This dream is over
Dream another dream
This dream is over
Dream another dream
This dream is over
Over, yeah
So dream another dream

Ow! It's a rip-off
We're stepped on and cheated
Flat stone cold lied to
We're not defeated, no

Dream another dream
This dream is over
Dream another dream
This dream is over, over
(Dream another dream)
Dream another dream
This dream is over, oh
Dream another dream
This dream is over, over, yeah
(Dream another dream)

Dream another dream
Dream another dream
Dream another dream
Oh, this dream is over
Dream another dream
(Dream another dream)
Dream another dream
