Dollanganger, Nicole - Nara Dreamland Lyrics




We broke into Dreamland
Just so we could have one more day there
But I could not stand to see it in such sad disrepair
He wanted to hold me in the roller coaster carts
Sunken into the ground
All I could think about
Was how much I wanted to
Burn it all down

He tried to tell me things get abandoned
It's okay for them to rot
I told him that we should find some gasoline
He said we'd better not

We broke into Dreamland
To find the parts of us that we left behind
But I could not stand the smell of death
When everything was still alive
If only I could pull out the clown's teeth
Take them home to keep with me
Euthanize the carousel ponies
Put the park out of its misery

    Everyone: this song has a lot of depth behind it

    Meanwhile, me: Free real estate for my Chara Dreemurr playlist

    I was hearing this on a bus when I was going to an amusement park, captured the feeling of going on that amusement park, it was so relaxing...

  3. Sarah and Cecilia Bohman

    Her songs always make me feel so... Sad. It makes me feel like I've been through the things she's talking about. This song... It makes me feel so... I can't describe it. It's just a sad feeling I get when I listen to songs like this.

    Same!
    When I hear this I feel like I lost something important.

    we broke into dreamland
    just so we could have one more day there
    but i could not stand to see it in such sad disrepair
    he wanted to hold me in the roller coaster carts
    sunken into the ground
    all i could think about
    was how much i wanted to
    burn it all down

    he tried to tell me things get abandoned
    it’s okay for them to rot
    i told him that we should find some gasoline
    he said we’d better not

    we broke into dreamland
    to find the parts of us that we left behind
    but i could not stand the smell of death
    when everything was still alive
    if only i could pull out the clown’s teeth
    take them home to keep with me
    euthanize the carousel ponies
    put the park out of its misery

    Beautiful

  8. Dead Haven

    one day I woke up with this song in my head...this was when I was grounded for 7 days.

    chew you up like bubble gum

    Dead Haven that must’ve been hell, a song stuck in your head that you can’t even listen 2

  9. Melody

    i feel this song so much... i started crying when i heard it on the radio. going back to something that used to mean a lot of to you and seeing how theyve faded over time can fuck you up. its difficult to see something expecting to feel the same happiness you did originally, and get reminded again and again that you won't, ever.

    A couple years ago, there was a fire where a few of my old houses were. It burned down the house that I grew up in. I lived there for my whole childhood. I had my best memories there of when my family was still together. I remember so many little things, like carving my name into the treehouse in the backyard, and painting eggs with my brother for Easter. I remember getting my first dog, my first day of school, losing my first tooth, my first everything. I went to go look at the damage that had been caused by the fire, and I couldn't bear it. To see a part of me be torn away really messed with me. There was just nothingness everywhere. My treehouse was gone. My swingset was gone. The bus stop across my street was gone. I felt a piece of me gone as well. I know that this isn't quite the same scenario as the song, but I can't help but think of that house when I hear this song. Now, i can't even get through this song without tearing up.

    boo you whore

    Melody it was on the radio? i didn’t know they played her songs there, since she's not that famous. but I agree with you. its kind of like that with people too.
