about

A new single from the upcoming album Suburban Gothic.

lyrics

the streets all look the same they’re lit with cotton candy sunsets
and who’s the one to blame that all the kids smoke cigarettes
and oh-me, oh-my, it’s a dangerous game
and oh-me, oh-my, i guess it’s all the same

i like the way the trees look just like skeletons in winter
they hollow in the breeze caress the air and leave it splintered
and oh-me, oh-my, it’s a heavenly fall
and oh-me, oh-my, you’re left with nothing at all

lullaburbia
where you sleep with your eyes open just to feel awake
lullaburbia
where you sleep with your eyes open just to get a break
lullaburbia
where the kids run wild away from your mistakes
lullaburbia
where you sleep through your life and you take, take, take

the diner tastes so good but something’s rotten in the store room
you look so pretty dear but something’s dark behind the costume
and, oh-me, oh-my, we’ve been here for so long
and oh-me, oh-my, can’t you tell something’s wrong

i like the way the teenage heartaches seem to linger
i like the way that midnight wraps you round her little finger
and oh-me, oh-my, it’s a heavenly scheme
and oh-me, oh-my, it’s a dangerous dream

lullaburbia
where you sleep with your eyes open just to feel awake
lullaburbia
where you sleep with your eyes open just to get a break
lullaburbia
where the kids run wild away from your mistakes
lullaburbia
where you sleep through your life and you take, take, take

i like the way it’s so familiar and at once so strange
i like the eerie way these streets just never seem to change
and oh-me, oh-my, it’s a heavenly shape
and oh-me, oh-my, i just want to escape

lullaburbia
where you sleep with your eyes open just to feel awake
lullaburbia
where you sleep with your eyes open just to get a break
lullaburbia
where the kids run wild away from your mistakes
lullaburbia
where you sleep through your life and you take, take, take
