Cinderella

 

“Pull your eyes down from the stars” He said
“Take off your shoes of glass
Take the ribbon off of your heart
And listen” is all he asked

I dance around 
I paint the town
The clock struck 12 and here I am still in my gown
Cinderella, Cinderella, Cinderella, Cinderella

“You’re running out of time” He said
“Soon you’ll be walking on glass
I wont pry the shards from your feet
You better wake up if you want us to last”

I dance around
I paint the town
The clock struck 12 and here I am still in my gown
Cinderella, Cinderella, Cinderella, Cinderella

Planet Glitter

 

They said "your planet's got no gravity

You're floating through space

You'll be squished back to size

When the weight of the earth

Has you in its brace."

 

It's all about cosmic rays, and planetary phase, and the international space station

Supernovas, and an old moon rover, and the pillars of creation

They say you... "live on another planet"

Planet Glitter sparkles even where there is no light
Planet Glitter glows and spins and feeds your heart with life
Planet Glitter is the lustre in your skin

The whispers are insisting the charade is wearing thin

All I hear is...

 

They said, "You think you're the life on Europa
Smell the roses god damn it

How can you look at me and smile
Like you're not affected by our planet?"

I said, "we're microcosms in a macrocosm

There's so much more to see
Fear is pollution cosmic inflation is the key"

 

It's all about cosmic rays, and planetary phase, and the international space station

Supernovas, and an old moon rover, and the pillars of creation

They say you... "live on another planet"

Planet Glitter sparkles even where there is no light
Planet Glitter glows and spins and feeds your heart with life
Planet Glitter is the lustre in your skin

The whispers are insisting the charade is wearing thin

All I hear is...

Puppets

 

Imagine we’re puppets on a stage 
Puzzle pieces in a play 
Thinking we are wise 
Like Superheroes of the Milky Way 

Tick tock tick tock 
Racing cycles on a steady clock 

Imagine we’re drawn by strings 
Sticking to a plan 
Fixed to cycles of numbers 
Obeying The Eternal Hands 

Tick tock tick tock 
Racing cycles on a steady clock 
Tick tock tick tock 
Racing Cycles on a steady Clock 

Imagine we’re addicted 
Bathing in honor and pride 
With painted features 
We are taken for a ride, 

Tick tock tick tock 
Racing Cycles on a steady clock 
Tick tock tick tock 
Racing Cycles on a steady clock 

Tick tock tick tock…
