Misc. Lyrics                    David Byrne
"Dream Operator"

When you were little
You dreamed you were big
You must have been something, a real tiny kid
You wished you were me
I wished I was you
Don't you wake up
The dream will come true
Every dream has a name
And names tell your story
This song is your dream
You're the dream operator

It's bigger than life
You know it's on me
My face is a book
But it's not what it seems
The three angels above
The whole human race
Dreamed us to life
You dreamed me a face
And every dream tells it all
And this is your story
You dreamed me a heart
You're the dream operator

Shake it up dream
Hi di ho dream
Fix it up dream
Look at me dream
I been waiting so long
Now I'm your dream
Hard to forget
Hard to go on
When you fall asleep
You're out on your own
Let go of your life
Grab onto my hand
Here in the clouds
Where we'll understand

And you dreamed it all
And this is your story
Do your move all you want
You're the dream operator

And you dreamed it all
And this is your story
Do your move all you want
You're the dream operator

"Dream Police"

Combing the snakes in his head
Reading a book in his bed
Getting ready for the night to begin
Waiting for daylight to end

In this court of law
This court of common pleas
The crimes that you committed
You claim were only a dream

Everyone has the same dreams
On different days of the week
We are the watchdogs of your mind
We are the dream police

The judge has closed his eyes
The court begins to dream
Of crimes that you committed
While you were lying asleep

Everyone has the same dreams
On different days of the week
We are the watchdogs of your mind
We are the dream police

Combing the snakes in his head
Reading a book in his bed
Getting ready for the night to begin
Waiting for daylight to end
Getting ready for the night to begin
Waiting for daylight to end
