those days are gone lyrics – fishbone

when you’re alone
can’t find your way out of the maze
life is ablaze
and you’re right there in the flames

is this pain?
are we sane?
and who has established these claims
while we all try to refrain?

i had a dream once, there was a wall inside my head
you all had put it there
we lived a life once, we felt together as one
and now those days are gone

we fled that place
there was a beast kept there
he was mighty and strong
and his name was jealousy

we all laughed, we felt we would rise above
with our unity, our unity
but later on that day he came back to say
that i have a friend and his name is envy

we toppled many lives
we’re like a mighty hurricane
we bring destruction
and we cause dissension

i had a dream once, there was a wall inside my head
and i had a dream once, there was a wall inside my head
and i had a dream once, there was a curse upon my soul

and now those days are gone
and now those days are gone
and now those days are gone
