Maybe the dream is just telling us it’s time to wake up. That’s right, awaken the America of community and compassion, of protest and tolerance, the America of safety and sanctuary. Dr. King tells us to awaken.

I want to run, I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
I want to reach out and touch the holy flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel the sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the hurricane
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we’re building, then burning down love
We’re burning down love
And when we go there, we go there with you
It's all we know how to do

The cities a flood
Our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled in dust
I first saw her face high on a desert plane
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we’re building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when we go there to go there with you
It's all we know how to do

Love, love, love
Only love
Love, love, love
There is no end to love

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we’re building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when we go there, we go there with you
It's all we know how to do
