lyrics

I’m safe in the arms of a dream cloud
No, not near the edge of a breakdown
No nightmares allowed in the big chair
Get out of my pretty little picture

Living lean and leaning skyward
Turning into soulless smilers
Learning all these brand new colors
Are they friends or foes, I wonder?

(I’m perfectly preserved in an underworld
And that’s all I want to be)
Sail, drift on a sea as the waves swell
Blue eyes that have wept like an angel
No nightmares allowed and I mean it
Better turn all your problems into secrets

Living lean and leaning skyward
Turning into soulless smilers
Learning all these brand new colors
Are they friends or foes, I wonder?

Stripped of clothes
And stripped of knowledge
How can you be sure?
Apes bang hammers
Bash typewriters
This is who we are

This bears every sign
Of a monster
I thought
I told you not to come here

No more time for fear and silence
Turning into soulless smilers
Learning all these brand new colors
Are they friends or foes, I wonder?

I’m holding on to hope
