Lyrics

Verse One:
Pictures flash what's in today.
By tomorrow, it's all gone away.
I turn the page, it's just another cliche.
Nothin's real it's just a game that we play.

What we see can be had for a price.
Just another face, in a masquerade.
After all there's nothin you can't have.
In a bad dream, will it go away.

Bridge:
What is the image in the mirror?
I don't know who I am.

Chorus:
I'm in a bad dream, I can't wake up
Just a bad dream, can't take too much
I'm in a bad dream, too much of this
Just a bad dream...bad dream.

Verse Two:
Society tells us how we should look.
What to wear and how to live our life.
A mannequin is what I've become.
There's no room for what is inside.

I'm feeing trapped in somebody's net.
I don't know what's real or is an illusion.
I close my eyes, and images attack me.
In a bad dream, will it go away.

Bridge:
How do I escape from this place?
Feelin' that I'm out of control.
What is the image in the mirror?
I don't know who I am.

Chorus:
I'm in a bad dream, I can't wake up
Just a bad dream, can't take too much
I'm in a bad dream, too much of this
Just a bad dream...bad dream.

Running line:
What you see is not what you get now.
It's not complicated, the look is overrated.
Stop...Let it be.

It's a fake reality now.
All regulated, the vision's way too faded.
Stop...Break it down.

Over Chorus:
Bad dream
It's just a nightmare.
It's not a fantasy.
It's an illusion.
I can't get up.

Chorus:
I'm in a bad dream, I can't wake up
Just a bad dream, can't take too much
I'm in a bad dream, too much of this
Just a bad dream...bad dream.

Vocal opera scales

Chorus:
I'm in a bad dream, I can't wake up
Just a bad dream, can't take too much
I'm in a bad dream, too much of this
Just a bad dream...bad dream.
