And we'll dance until midnight

-

I don't want to be a hypocrite

lying all the time and

soaked in disinfect

they paint themselves over with blue paint

(like Jamie Bulger, only he didn't want to)

to cover up what they wrecked

-

I don't want to be a shadow

sinking into the dark and

always being left out

they shy away from sunshine

(but only because it's a symbol of happiness)

and hold everybody's doubt

-

I don't want to be the ray of hope

shining in your eyes

because if you follow the path I make

I'll glimmer for the last time

(yes, I only want to save myself)

and I'll. Descend. Into. Heartbreak.

-

And we'll dance until midnight

and this time, baby...

let's not play by the fairy tales.
