  • I'm just as fucked up as they say
    I can't fake the daytime
    Found an entrance to escape into the dark
    Got false lights for the sun
    It's an artificial nocturne
    It's an outsider's escape for a broken heart

    We hide out in the back
    Like shadows in a stranger's dream
    Hiding out in the back together
    Hiding out in the back forever

    I'll make
    All that I believe
    In dreams
    So real
    Faith I have to take the call
    Faith don't fail me now

    I'll make
    All that I believe
    I set myself free
    So take all the time you need
    And let yourself be

    I'm as fucked up as they say
    I can't fake the daytime
    Found an entrance to escape into the dark
    Got false lights for the sun
    It's an artificial nocturne
    An outsider's escape for a broken heart

    I'm as fucked up as they say
    I can't fake the daytime
    Found an entrance to escape into the dark
    Got false lights for the sun
    It's an artificial nocturne
    An outsider's escape for a broken heart Writer/s: Emily Haines, James Shaw
