about

An epic track that starts as a piano ballad and ends in a driving chanty rock out. Romeo sums up the album in this song, which is really about an ideal to “live the dream”. For Romeo, the dream is about something bigger than himself. “To work every day for something bigger than me, I live the dream”. Romeo gets vulnerable commenting on his struggle to balance work with an ever elusive state of happiness. “I’m a busy worker bee, honey give me something sweet now.” The song climaxes with a Billy Joel style collage of memories as his life flashes before his eyes.

lyrics

Verse

I’m running, I’m running, I’m running caught up in a bound.
I’m rolling like a pin ball marble, but way out of bounds.

Like a cigarette burning at the end and wet in the mouth.
Light me up, burn me down, spit me out, spit me out, spit me out.

Chorus

To work everyday for something bigger than me, I live the dream.
To change the lives of all my family, I live the dream.
I live the dream yeah yeah yeah, oh oh oh ooo whoa oh ooo whoa ooo whoa
oooh oooh whooo ooo

Verse

I’m a busy worker bee, honey give me something sweet now.
I have a fear of flying, but the hive is well alive somehow.
I want more than ever, more than ever now.
Happily ever after, more before the after, now.

Chorus

To work everyday for something bigger than me, I live the dream.
To change the lives of all my family, I live the dream.
I live the dream yeah yeah yeah, oh oh oh ooo whoa oh ooo whoa ooo whoa
oooh oooh whooo ooo

Outro

Hi Ho, here we go, everybody, rock’n’roll

Elton John, Dosey Doe, Honky Tonk, Billy Joel

Holiday, Home Alone, singin Marilyn Monroe

Live the dream, let ‘em know, everybody rock’n’roll

Buy the bus, hit the road, my beloved, is my home

Love her till I’m out of money, ain’t it tragic, ain’t it funny

Caffienated, signs vital, Hollywood, suicidal

Start a family, start a war, what the hell we fightin’ for

Holy moly, disco joe, rollie pollie, Figaro

Line it up, ready roll, 650, Istanbul

Price is right, Colorado, getting’ lucky, win the lotto

Flavor Savin’, Cincinnati, Red Hot, rusted Caddy

Lovin’ but no elevator, take the stairs, see you later

Raspberry, back ache, laugh until my bones break

Seattle, Gabrielle, not a tipper, ring the bell

Salisbury, steak day, biker mice, buck hay

High divin’, bangarang, what up cuz? hot dog dang

Mickey Dog, trapper keeper, eat it up, mom’s beeper

Riverboat, drink the wine, Happy Birthday, Time to die

Life flashin’ right before my eyes, flashin’ right before my eyes
