(yes, it's Wang Chung. And yes, I hate "Everybody Have Fun Tonight". But I love this tune from the movie)

"Wake Up Stop Dreaming" by Wang Chung

Wake up, stop dreaming
The sun is in the sky again
There's a hole in the ocean
And water's pouring through

Oh, wake up, stop dreaming
And wipe the sleep from your eyes
Are you frightened of heights?
Are you falling?

Wake up, stop dreaming
There's more than just two steps to heaven
I'm saying if you wanna get to heaven
You'd better wake up

Wake up, stop dreaming
I'm talkin' 'bout dream and reality
I'm talkin' 'bout love and brutality
And I'm saying wake up, wake up

Wake up, stop dreaming
Before the shutters start to groan
Well it's something you said in the noon day sun
But I don't recall, I don't recall

Wake up, stop dreaming
Stop this seeming half reality
Don't turn your face away
Look at me

As you lie sleeping
Someone's keeping everything I knew
Don't try to run away
It's all new

Wake up, stop dreaming
There's more than just two steps to heaven
I'm saying that if you wanna get to heaven
You'd better wake up

Wake up, stop dreaming
I'm talkin' 'bout dream and reality
I'm talkin' 'bout love and brutality
And I'm saying wake up

Wake up, stop dreaming
There's more than just two steps to heaven
I'm saying that if you wanna get to heaven
You'd better wake up
