shes got it all worked out
faded vanity
i think that it shows by now, shes probably on to me.
well shes clear, not far away
at night time they stray.
wont believe nor fear, because i made her real.
dont...

(childish banter)
woe.
closer can you come out?
woe.
will we fall out?
did u come?

your kingdom arose from a fort of sheets
your crown was hailed by the king in me

as we whispered our woes.

    General Commentit sounds like this song can come from two directions.

    first, it sounds as if theres a girl he likes but hes getting into deception and shes catching on.

    but then, if you look at these sort of mythical references,
    'well shes clear, not far away.
    at night time they stray'
    sounds like he dreams of this girl,
    and shes imaginary. a girl that he wishes to meet.
    he wishes was real, so he could love.

    'wont believe, nor fear,
    because i made her real'
    again with the dream-girl reference.

    'closer can you come out?'
    he wishes she was real.
    he loves her, she doesn't exist.

    'your kingdom arose from a fort of sheets
    your crown was hailed by the king in me'
    sounds as if she is royal in his dreams
    and he wishes to be with her.
    to be her king.

    General CommentGreat song! I agree with kayleecutee on the meaning. But I did find these lyrics kind of off and hard to follow so I thought I would just throw these more accurate ones up:

    Well she’s got it all worked out
    Faded vanity
    I think that it shows by now, she’s probably on to me
    Well she’s clear, not far away
    At night time they stray
    Won’t believe nor fear, ‘cause I made her real
    Whoa

    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will you come out?
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will you fall out?
    When you come out, did you come?

    Your kingdom arose, from a fort of sheets
    Your crown was hailed, by the king in me
    As we whispered
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will you come out?

    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will we fall out?
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will you come out?
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will you fall out?
    When you come out, did you come?

    Whoa, WHOA!
    Closer we come out!
    Closer we fall out!
    Closer we fall!
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will you come out?
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer did you fall out?
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer will you come out?
    Whoa, whoa
    Closer did you fall out?
    Did you come?
