drained again by you and the summer
i'm shadows of monsters
i'm showrooms of glistening glass
with amphetamine comedowns
i'm spinning and turning
alone on saint valentines
but i think that i hear celestial angels
they riccochet
sounds of moments of glory that passed
now my pipe dreams are calling
they sing to me sweetly of soul and sincerity
let's reset our instrument dials
somewhere the moment will come
when we crash through the heart of the sun
- we are unstoppable now -
somewhere the night will explode
on the back of this wave that we rode
- we are unbreakable now -
just how well do you know me?
i'm countless calamities
a maleable creature who speaks with a laudanum toungue
and i promise you deeply
the righteous will triumph over all adversity
because sometimes the melodies come
leaving trails like stars as they fall
and sometimes i have to hold on
or be overwhelmed by this all
so reset your instrument dials
because somewhere our spirits will soar
as the audience started to roar
- we are unswayable now -
can you feel the air under your wings
as a thousand throats started to sing
- we are unbeatable now -
well my head is a box whose secrets are open
we're candyfloss children who live in a city of clouds
with the ghosts of dead robots
where fiction and fantasy roll like a cannonball
on moments when planets collide
emerald city doors swing open wide
hold your breath and the music will play
and we'll puff and just blow em away
somewhere the moment will finally land
as i pick the crowd up in my hand
to hear their roar echo away

    General Commentwho gives a shit about the lyrics? the music creates such a profoundly optimistic vibe that could only go with a title such as the one it was so aptly given. with music this beautiful lyrics come second.
