You'll make it up, you'll tell a lie.
Pretend you're real, go on and try.
Praise yourself. Its all ok, it gets easier, it gets easier.
So take your pills (SO TAKE YOUR PILLS), blur your life.
Forget you were ever there, to enjoy the ride.
And bite your lip (AND BITE YOUR LIP), swallow your pride.
How long has it been for you, since you felt alive?

To wave, goodbye.
To wave, goodbye.

The pavement; it dulls your senses.
And visions of black and white, of solid steel,
and flashing lights.
So close your eyes, and lose this fight.

    General CommentThe missing parts of this song (from what i can hear) go like this.(mind you these are probably really wrong)
    (0:53)
    The night you'd show off,
    Your fabulous for me
    The fear of reverence
    No matter how much I try to put you aside
    Who hurt you so badly,
    Who made you a mess,
    Who tore up your heart,
    and left me to clean up the mess...
    well I'm going to finish it

    (2:29)
    So close your eyes,
    and lose this fight.
    Your pupils close,
    In symphony.
    Your bodies limp,
    You try to cry.
    You've lost this fight,
    You've lost this fight.

    and idk the rest after that.

    General CommentActually I might write down what I think it says

    [??] catwalk
    The night you show off,
    You're fabulous for me
    The Theatre of Robots
    No matter how much I try to put you aside
    Who hurt you so badly,
    Who made you a mess,
    Who tore up your heart,
    And left me to clean up the mess...

    General CommentIt reminds me of suicide and giving up on life. Someone tries to get away from everything using things such as drugs and pretending they're not real. They're forgetting who and what is really real.
