lyrics

Stay out super late tonight,
pickin' apples, makin' pie.
Put a little something in our gatorade and take it with us.

We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
We're half awake,
in a fake empire.

Tip toe through our shiny city,
with our diamond slippers on.
Do our gay ballet at night,
with blue birds on our shoulders,

We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
We're half awake,
in a fake empire.

Turn the light out, say goodnight,
no thinking for a little while.
Let's not try to figure out everything at once.
It's hard keeping track of you,
falling through the sky.

We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
