Deviant Dreams
Lyrics: Oteil Burbridge, John Popper
Music: Oteil Burbridge, John Popper

Every morning he wakes and he sets upon his neighbor
Fixing only on that which he's deemed to control
Neatly filing and faxing and filling in the aspects
Always eating but absent to notice the hunger

And these are his daily bread
And isn't it better left unsaid?
And why even question what you don't see
When your eyes are shut?

Nervously he gets through his two-week vacation
Sleeping mostly but never remembering the dreams
Evasively he puts up with the time with his family
Keeping busy 'til the cable can drown out the screams

And these are his daily bread
And isn't it better left unsaid?
And why even question what you don't see
When your eyes are shut?

What deviant dreams lurk beneath the skin?
What happy little secret are you living in?
Always alone and convinced that you're made up of deviant dreams
But are you afraid
To dream about anger?
Dream about pain?
Dreams lead to feelings that awaken everything
Perchance to gain freedom
Perchance to abound
To ripple your water
Knock you up or down

And these are his daily bread
And isn't it better left unsaid?
And why even question what you don't see
When your eyes are shut?
And sometimes love can hurt you more
Than any pain or fire or famine or war
But even worse is missing what you don't see when your eyes are shut

What deviant dreams lurk beneath the skin?
What dirty little secret are you living in?
Always alone and convinced that you're made up of deviant dreams
But are you afraid
To dream about anger?
Dream about pain?
Dreams lead to feelings that awaken everything
Perchance to gain freedom
Perchance to abound
To ripple your water
Knock you up or down
