Diorama – Defcon Lyrics

Now pull yourself together
Pour a drink, light a cigarette
And tell me about the weather
And how the sky turns violet

"Every time you collide…"
…and how it all gets messed up
"Every time you alight…"
…before the suns comes up at you
"Like a forbidden light…"
….I have a lame excuses
"Undignified…"
…they will do the job for you

[Chorus]
This is the greatest trick of the century
And it runs, runs, runs like a clockwork
Why do you whisper?
Why don't you scream at me?
What a real-fake life we won't be sharing

I store you in the gift box
I take you out on a weary day
We're going deaf when fear talks
We overrule our deity
"Every time you collide…"
…we radiate the brightness
"Every time you alight…"
…from the amazing fallacy
"Like a forbidden light…."
…behind our sweat-soaked faces
"Undignified…"
…but who on earth needs dignity?

[Chorus]

"Every time you collide"
"Every time you alight"
"Like a forbidden light"
"Undignified"

[Chorus]
