Red brick walls, bright red lights and concrete Behind the glass And waiting there for me Pink and yellow stars, they circle me Around my head But they’re not all I see Life and death may be only a dream But while I’m here I’ll see all I can see Shining stars, tall trees and summer heat Behind the glass And waiting there for me And waiting there for me Pretty lovers deep beneath the sheets Behind the glass And waiting there for me Pink and yellow stars, they circle me Around my head But they’re not all I see Red brick walls, bright red lights and concrete Behind the glass And waiting there for me Life and death may be only a dream But while I’m here I’ll see all I can see I’ll see all I can see

My new best friend is the terror wave And pink and yellow summer stars, they circle ‘round my head In my dream I was an airplane flying high above your house And little ghosts of summer fireworks shot up and shot me down Oh no no no… Like balancing on a razor blade No, I don’t want to die, just bleed my heart to know it still runs red When I woke I broke a mirror just to touch the other side And little shards of glass - They shimmered, showed my face a thousand times Oh no no no…

When you were 23 I asked you why your feet Float four inches above the sidewalks of the city Your parachute failed you You fell down and down And fifty weeks later You still haven’t touched down Oh no, Oh no, Oh no Back then you were new here A red bow in your hair On the run from these ghosts, they Were chasing you everywhere Ducked into the corners Dark alleys and side streets And given a task you Could never hope to complete Oh no, Oh no, Oh no

Killing time Oh please Please believe The things I say ‘Cause today I’m not I’m not the same I’m not the same at all And fuck it. Yesterday Your dress I’m a mess I’m a mess All summery and bright Packing light Fly away Fuckin A But I’m already gone Long gone Sucked up Dragged away Some kind of terror wave Don’t save Me now Don’t even try it Shining bright I might Strike you down Strike you down And crush you with my love My love My love My love And my most maudlin thoughts I’m not A violent man But I can’t control What’s inside of me

You’re not real Covered you in light You’re not real Covered you in light You’re not real Covered you in light You’re not real Come on out tonight You’re not real Come on out and fight Show yourself Step into the light It’s not real Come on out and fight In light

How could you forget that night When you came along for the ride Smiling, laughing by my side And the sky was shimmering, shimmering Summer fireworks lit our way Like we were heroes on parade Shooting down the dragonflies In your eyes and shimmering, shimmering Then I laid down all my cards Licked the sugar from your heart Fast cars shine through window bars And their headlights shimmering, shimmering Now I can’t afford to wait Lost in memories of your face Let this summer go to waste Watching time just slip away I want to know

Come on over Don’t come sober Don’t be shy Don’t hold back this time Come on baby Don’t say maybe Dance with me and Be my lady Come on Come on by and Feel alright and Stay the night I know that you might Want some other Motherfucker But he can’t love you Not like I do Come on

Hospital, Tuesday Oh Doctor Doctor Cut off the head to save the body Stare at the mirror I just can’t shake it Sparkle reflections, oh the sparks and the smoke Check the computers Turn off the lasers Hang up the phone and dust me for fingerprints I’m swept up in something Don’t know where I’m going Don’t tell me it’s heaven Don’t you tell me Five O’Clock bell rings Home from the factory I bought this crazy new car, it runs on compliments Pardon me misses Don’t mean to be rude, dear I wouldn’t have meant to offend anyone
