  • I think the kids are in trouble
    I do not know what all the troubles are for
    Give them ice for their fevers
    You're the only thing I ever want anymore
    Live on coffee and flowers
    And try not to wonder what the weather will be
    I figured out what we're missing
    I tell you miserable things after you are asleep

    Now we'll leave the Silver City
    'Cause all the silver girls
    Gave us black dreams
    Leave the Silver City
    'Cause all the silver girls
    Everything means everything

    It's a Hollywood summer
    You'll never believe the shitty thoughts I think
    Meet our friends out for dinner
    When I said what I said, I didn't mean anything
    We belong in a movie
    Try to hold it together until our friends are gone
    We should swim in a fountain
    Do not want to disappoint anyone

    Now we'll leave the Silver City
    'Cause all the silver girls
    Gave us black dreams
    Leave the Silver City
    To all the silver girls
    Everything means everything

    I was afraid
    I'd eat your brains
    I was afraid
    I'd eat your brains
    'Cause I'm evil
    'Cause I'm evil

    I'm a confident liar
    Have my head in the oven so you'll know where I'll be
    I try to be more romantic
    I want to believe in everything you believe
    If I was less than amazing
    I do not know what all the troubles are for
    Fall asleep in your branches
    You're the only thing I ever want anymore

    Now we'll leave the Silver City
    'Cause all the silver girls
    Gave us black dreams
    Leave the Silver City
    To all the silver girls
    Everything means everything

    I was afraid
    I'd eat your brains
    I was afraid
    I'd eat your brains
    'Cause I'm evil
    'Cause I'm evil
