Neon signs and concrete pavements

Lead you the right way home

Another night awake

Staring at the streetlights

Tell me your dreams:

Scarlet cars, and paper planes?

Maiden beauty and roads to fame?

Tell me a fantasy:

Palm-made hearts and smiling faces?

Tears of joy or endless sorrow?

Soon, too soon, you've awoken

To see starless skies and

Copper moons

A devil's daydream

Tell me your lies:

Meaningless apologies?

Or crafted deceit?

Tell me your soul:

A halo, an aura

Or simply a matter of shame?

I tap varnished finger tips

Upon a broken keyboard

Are you laughing at shattered porcelain?

Don't lie.
