When lightning strikes and we are sleeping, tell me where my friends go
When everyone around is dreaming, tell me where my friends go
When children aren't children no more, tell me where my friends go
When parents aren't behind the door, tell me where my friends go
When football's over and the beer's gone, tell me where my friends go
When TV set no longer turns on, tell me where my friends go

If I could float and drift forever, tell me where my friends go
I'd join the shattered dreams together, tell me where my friends go
I'd spy upon the disbelievers, tell me where my friends to
And scatter them into the seasons, tell me where my friends go

When winter comes I'll keep on moving, tell me where my friends go
To fill the cup of understanding, tell me where my friends go
I'd fly, tell me where my friends go
To hidden places in the sky, tell me where my friends go

My hesitation is strong today, the indications all point away
To somethin' better for everyone, has something gone astray?

I'll follow you until I die, tell me where my dreams go
With outstretched arms into the sky, tell me where my dreams go
When all is said and come undone, tell me where my dreams go
The words have come, the words have come
Tell me where my dreams go

We'll chase the ghosts into the shadows, tell me where my dreams go
The specters watch through every window, tell me where my dreams go
We'll run like dogs and jump the fences, tell me where my dreams go
And howl at men behind their faces, tell me where my dreams go
We'll bark at night and wake the neighbors, tell me where my dreams go
And tell the world of our adventures, tell me where my dreams go

My hesitation is strong today, the indications all point away
To somethin' better for everyone, has something gone astray?

My revelations have lost control, my better judgment has gone away
Our evolution is full of holes, has something gone astray

Tell me where my friends go, tell me where my friends go
Tell me where my friends go, tell me where my friends go
Tell me where my friends go, tell me where my friends go
Tell me where my friends go, tell me where my friends go
Tell me where my friends go, tell me where my friends go
