This guy’s got a picture of you 
 Hanging up in the walls of his mind
 A technicolor tinge she’ll throw in the mix 
 When you’re feeling black and white 
No sign of insecurities
 You do well to conceal these
 But then I think that you’re not real
 So you shoot me a smile 
Effortless to surmise 
That you’re just being ideal

 My reoccurring reverie
 When I’m not with her 
I slip into a place where I 
 Don’t want to leave until 
 My hand is back around her side
 Been orbiting the ordinary 
It’s not what she does but how
 She does it for me

 This guy’s got it all under wraps
 By a front that’s weakening by the day
 You’re looking through the lenses of love 
 And it tends to make these versions of reality sane

 And with this picture of hers 
 The reverie reoccurs
 Are you sure you want to know if she’s real?
 Cos when the symptoms persist
 You’d knowingly run the risk 
I’ve tried and can’t have it
 Any other way 

 My reoccurring reverie
 When I’m not with her
 I slip into a place where I 
 Don’t want to leave until 
 My hand is back around her side
 Been orbiting the ordinary
 It’s not what she does but how
 She does it for me

Like the ‘x’ she puts
 At the end of that text looks
 Like we’re on our way.
 We’re on our way.

Sometimes the words that I say Come back and bite me in ways That are not yet clear to me Just 'cause I can't recollect Half of the shit that I've said Doesn't mean I still that way It doesn't mean I still feel that Chorus: I'm wearing thin when you're wearing those Cancelling eyes staring at me You can't take the cold Pretend it lends to the night You're tape recorder mind That fierce opponent of mine Telling tales of indiscretionary me A 50/50 for now No damage done this time round Next time it's control I could lose Next time it's control I could lose A state of the art handle on Your state of mind In these trying times That's all I ask for A talent for toeing the line between Having it all and restarting It's easier said than done But every little simple thing is. I'm wearing thin when you're wearing those Cancelling eyes staring at me You can't take the cold Pretend it lends to the night

I am the narcissist that everyone insists they aren't That kind of arrogance allowing me to speak on your behalf Online veneers be your own idea of yourself Your own ideas the online veneer speaks for itself Now these words of mine they seem so insincere If only you could see my eyes You'd know that we're alright Looking in the mirror just to make sure that you look Like they think you should. I am the fare evader on the train of thought I guess Taking the ride just to arrive at where I was before So don't take my side If only you could see my eyes You'd know that we're alright Looking in the mirror just to make sure that you look Like they think you should Looking like your Online veneers be your own idea of yourself Your own ideas the online veneer speaks for itself

I've been busy thinking How underneath your thumb is where I wanna stay How underneath your thumb in chains I can escape A sucker for that substance A tonic for the soul now inertia's in play Do you feel at all like basking in the charade? Now you're always at the top of my recently searched list Now you're always at the top of my recently searched list I can give her up Give her up anytime I can give her up Anytime just you watch I can give her up Give her up anytime I can give her up Tellin' you I can stop Anytime Them other bubble gum girls They hold the interest for maybe a minute max But I'm like Violet Beauregarde if it's you Stuck behind my ear whispering the commands Now you're always at the top Yeah you're always at the top I can give her up Give her up anytime I can give her up Anytime just you watch I can give her up Give her up anytime I can give her up Tellin' you I can stop Anytime x2 Anytime I can give her up x4

My grip on the handlebars is loosening And there's routine whispering, "Ollie, won't you let me drive? I know a way to make you forget time; Mayonaisse coloured lenses Try them on for size and drift away! Where there's no need to think again" Going round Going round The absence of a dream Absent-minded me Going round Going round On the same circuit where nothing ever happens. Sliding under the rain Sealed from sight It's bleeding through again 'Cause there's no slowing down When you're life deprived Anodyne-laced adventures Count backwards from five And drift away Where there's no need to think again You're going round Going round The absence of a dream Absent minded me You're going round Going round On the same circuit On the same circuit On the same circuit It's the same Someone drifting along, drifting alone. x4
