Imploding the Mirage

Album: Imploding The Mirage (2020)
  • I was a timid, Rockwellian boy
    She was tattooed and ready to deploy
    Gave me reservation and the like
    For she could be the dangerous type
    But I threw caution 'cause something about that
    Yin and the yang was pushing my boundaries out
    Beyond my imagining

    While you were out there chewing on fat
    For probable cause, I let go
    While you were out there weighing odds
    I was imploding the mirage
    While you were out there looking like that
    I struck my name from the camouflage
    I wasn't lost in the collage
    I was imploding the mirage
    I was imploding the mirage

    I had to do it, I had no other choice
    You've got to listen to the inside voice
    A bullet train will get you there fast
    But it won't guarantee a long last
    Sometimes it takes a little bit of courage and doubt
    To push your boundaries out
    Beyond your imagining

    While you were out there chewing on fat
    For probable cause, I let go
    While you were out there weighing odds
    I was imploding the mirage
    While you were out there looking like that
    I struck my name from the camouflage
    I wasn't lost in the collage
    I was imploding the mirage
    I was imploding the mirage

    I was spellbound by the show
    The matchless power of the glow
    I was bound by golden shackles
    Getting by
    She tripped the breaker, blew the fuse
    Doesn't need no pair of shoes
    Her wings have come
    And she's ready for the sky

    While you were out there chewing on fat
    For probable cause, I let go
    While you were out there weighing odds
    I was imploding the mirage
    While you were out there looking like that
    I walked right out of the camouflage
    I wasn't locked in no collage
    I was imploding the mirage
    I was imploding the mirage Writer/s: Brandon Flowers, Jonathan Rado
