While We Were Dreaming

The Pink MountaintopsBuy this song

While you lie on your back
And move through the scars
So careful you are
To surrender a thing

But Jesus ain't comin'
So don't waste your time
Not yours and not mine
You're only dreaming

And while you were scheming
The silver the sheets
Far above the leaves
I snuck into your scene

Don't lie there, looking
Behind your troubled walls
Wicked as they are
You're not deceiving

And if I could find your heart
I would pull it from your chest
And smash you with my fist
Til it was beating

And if there's a hole inside
Heaven in your bed
'Cause the angel that you kissed
Just left you bleeding

I know it ain't easy
To keep roundin' on
When the voices in your skull
Are always screaming

Broke into your prison
And dropped the sleeping guards
Painted flowers on the bars
And snuck you out the yard

Paralysed and gleaming
With visions of new states
We're wrapped in our embrace
While we were dreaming
