lyrics

Just like the tarantula I washed down the drain--
waiting for me to sleep so you can crawl back in my brain.
Just like cat hunting this light up the wall--
got paint under my nails but never catch nothing at all.

And I'm bored with always being afraid
bored with the same old shallow grave--
at the bus stop wait for a tidal wave

Got everything I'll ever need
to get to where I need to be--
an easy bake oven, a time machine
with the frequency to please...

Someday, I'm gonna dream a dream
where the creatures inside of me scream, saying:
"Holy shit. This is real. This is happening."
A phoenix that's afraid to burn
but tonight's your night and it's your turn
You're glamorous. This is finally happening
for us.

Hiding in pools downtown sun blanching our bones--
holding skeleton hands in the sand we'll make our new home.
Pushing up through the floor in our radio active half-life--
these routine little deaths get easier with every try.

And geometry is such a shame
that the shelf life of pleasure and pain aren't the same--
why do we always gotta feel this way?

Don't you catch' The Nothing', Never
To fresh to clean to be lost forever--
A strongly worded letter to a senator:
You're a National Treasure...

Someday, I'm gonna dream a dream
where the creatures inside of me scream, saying:
"Holy shit. This is real. This is happening."
A phoenix that's afraid to burn
but tonight's your night and it's your turn
You're glamorous. This is finally happening
for us.

Put your eyes
in your heart
lead me in to your dark
where the animals hide
yet to be discovered,
to feel Alive.

And oh, my Love
if by chance we survive--
this will be the greatest Rager
of Our Lives.

Someday, I'm gonna dream a dream
where the creatures inside of me scream, saying:
"Holy shit. This is real. This is happening."
A phoenix that's afraid to burn
but tonight's your night and it's your turn
You're glamorous. This is finally happening
for us.
