Murdered in the bedroom
A prisoner of chance
Red glow of the lava lamp
From your uncles and aunts
You're always so distant
Like a star behind a cloud
Relying on your mother's breast
'Cause your father's not around

The greatest of the great
Any troubled soul can write a song

Traces in the garden
Looking at the lights
From the darkness of the suburbs
And the safety of always being right
A dream to dream a child's dream
The glistening of I
We are stood side by side
Trying not to cry

You told me to be strong
That this fear is wrong
When I've had enough of this
Once again I will just move on

The statues and the trees
Have practiced standing still
Trapped in a reality where nothing's truly real
Sing a song and be content
To fall is to be free
All there's left to do is take off these shoes
And wade into this dream

The lion's eyes are tired
From staring at this mess for way too long
