Fake Empire

  • Stay out super late tonight
    Picking apples, making pies
    Put a little something in our lemonade
    And take it with us

    We're half awake in a fake empire
    We're half awake in a fake empire

    Tiptoe through our shiny city
    With our diamond slippers on
    Do our gay ballet on ice
    Bluebirds on our shoulders

    We're half awake in a fake empire
    We're half awake in a fake empire

    Turn the light out, say goodnight
    No thinking for a little while
    Let's not try to figure out everything at once
    It's hard to keep track of you falling through the sky

    We're half awake in a fake empire
    We're half awake in a fake empire Writer/s: Bryce David Dessner, Matthew Donald Berninger
