Chasing something that doesn't exist.

lyrics

Lucid and dreaming
A whole other life
What's wrong with this one?
Nothing, nothing
You've got what you wanted
And to hell with the rest
Did the enemy give in?
The enemy within

Pretend you're an astronaut
Pretend you're the president
You're nothing special
But nobody is
Some folks they fake it
With perfect technique
You want a denial
You want a quick fix

The dreams you gave up
Were fleeting
They couldn't quench
Your desires
A flash in the pan
Burned you once
And you promised to never
Love again

The fix didn't fix it
It never does
At first an improvement
Then it slips
A soul tracheotomy
To let my heart breathe
Only to find out
It already drips

I cleaned up my act
Enough for a pass
I quietly move
Thru the day
You gave me hope
For a better solution
A silver lining in the
Grey

The dreams you gave up
Were fleeting
They couldn't quench
Your desires
A flash in the pan
Burned you once
And you promised to never
Love again

Lucid and dreaming
Lucky you, lucky you
You found a quick fix
To get you through
I never listen
For uninvited guests
Wrapped up in my own tricks
Give it a rest
