lyrics

a troubled mind it seems I hide myself
from what I truly need
cheap disguise put on to blind each other
from necessities
it’s a plastic dream
lived out to fill between the lines
don’t hide from me
your feet can’t keep up with a lie

lonely nights I count them one by one
bittersweet tranquility
come get high with me and close your eyes
I’ll tell you who I’m gonna be
these plastic dreams
they help me get some sleep at night
and if you can’t tell me
well I need to move on with my life


(chorus)
looking into your eyes, I just see the wall
thats right behind you, but oh you're walking tall
your lies will bind you, and they wont catch you when you fall
I’m right behind you, but you’ve put your back against the wall


I still taste the ginger of your lips
but you’re getting harder and harder to see
clinging helplessly to whatever's left of us
well just forget silly old me
these plastic dreams
they instill forgotten blissfulness
now what’s wrong with me
I need to push towards the light that’s guiding me

so much tension lingers in the air, so tell me
whats it gonna be?
last ditch effort made to save yourself
once again you've forgotten me
these plastic dreams
they highlight the ugly things you hide
and you best believe
that I’ve got to let you go tonight, so easily

why can’t I breathe?

CHORUS

these plastic dreams
they show us what life’s really like
and if you’re done with me
well I need to move on with my life
let me please
