"The Dream Is Dead" is the closing track of the Type O Negative album Life Is Killing Me, released in 2003. The elements in this song resembles that of elements typically utilized in October Rust. The lyrics is about a lover leaving them for good, reflected from Steele having hard time to celebrate Valentine's Day as the date coincides with the anniversary of his father's death.

The title of this track was originally going to be used to title the parent album. The reason for this refusal was that Pete thought that fans would think this may be their last album that'll ever be released by Type O Negative. The band would release one more album after this.

Lyrics Edit

Champagne glass of blood and wine
On chocolate hearts alone I dine
Candles weeping waxing tears
Ten for roses each one a year - disappear

Arrows fester in my heart
Each memory another dart
Love and death both colored red
Showing my past, the dream is dead

Another lonely Valentine's Day
I can't believe that things turned out this way
And though I hate to see you go
I know it must be so
Another lonely Valentine's Day

Nobody will break your fall
All for none, yeah, none for all
Nothing's so cruel as the truth
Join the Festival of Fools

Nobody will break your fall
All for one, yeah, none for all
Nothing's so cruel as the truth
Join the festival, my fools

Another lonely Valentine's Day
I can't believe things turned out this way
And though I hate to see you go
I know it must be so
Another lonely Valentine's Day

The dream is dead

The dream is dead
The dream is dead
The dream is dead
The dream is dead
The dream is dead
