In my home
They put so many pictures of me
And I live
In hopes that I can live up to me
And I'm just
As grim as I could possibly be
In my head
Where the saddest king reigns supreme

This time
I wanna find
A hope in me as big as
The stars in my eyes
This time
I wanna find
A hope in me as big as
The stars in my eyes

Our hearts
Our hearts
Breathe the same as dirty fiction
Look the same as dirty fiction
Honestly
Our hearts
Our hearts
Breathe the same as dirty fiction
Look the same as dirty fiction
Honestly

In my home
They put so many pictures of me
And I stand
Alone upon on a hill of debris
And I've seen
As much as I could possibly see
In the land
Of blind the one-eyed man is the king

This time
I wanna find
A hope in me as big as
The stars in my eyes
This time
I wanna find
A hope in me as big as
The stars in my eyes

Our hearts
Our hearts
Breathe the same as dirty fiction
Look the same as dirty fiction
Honestly
Our hearts
Our hearts
Breathe the same as dirty fiction
Look the same as dirty fiction
Honestly

It's a mystery how I keep my head
Over water and out of bed
And it's a wonder how I keep my feet
On the ground and walking under me

Our hearts
Our hearts
Breathe the same as dirty fiction
Look the same as dirty fiction
Honestly
Our hearts
Our hearts
Breathe the same as dirty fiction
Look the same as dirty fiction
Honestly (repeat)

    General CommentObviously this is about fame, or more simply being known for something. Even just the favorite child in the family. there are so many people talking about you and commenting on your acomplishments that you have to continually live up to and defeat expectations, and how sometimes you can't.

    and also I think it is about hollowness and how recognition doesn't bring you anything.
