Sleepwalking

Album: Love, Save the Empty (2009)
  • Turn the corner, too familiar
    Turn around into your past
    Oh

    You hide and seek the same addiction,
    Hope you find the better one of the last
    Oh

    You're sleepwalking through your big bed of lies
    Wish on up a new star every night, oh yeah
    I see you're at it again, sitting on your hands
    Waiting around for the wind to change direction, oh yeah
    And there you go again
    Stuck in your head, having a ball as you throw your optimistic ways
    It's a beautiful day
    So off with your masquerade

    All the people look so happy, safe beneath their plastic skin, oh
    Get a rise from another's tragedy, but tip-toe so nobody can get in, oh

    You're sweet-talking through you're big bed of lies
    Wish on up your new star every night, oh yeah
    I see you're at it again, sitting on your hands
    Waiting around for the wind to change direction, Oh
    There you go again
    Stuck in your head, having a ball in you're fully optimistic way

    Oh, doubt in you, you suffocate in your feather sleep
    You twist inside your hollow eyes when the mirror speaks

    I see you're at it again, sitting on your hands
    Waiting around for the wind to change direction, oh yeah yeah yeah
    There you go again
    Stuck in your head, having ball in you're fully optimistic way, yeah

    I see you're at it again, sitting on your hands
    Waiting around for the wind to change direction, oh
    There you go again
    Stuck in your head, having a ball in you're fully optimistic way
    So off with your masquerade Writer/s: ERIN MCCARLEY, WAYNE RODRIGUEZ, JAMIE KENNEY
