Fake Empire
The National Lyrics


Stay out super late tonight
Picking apples, making pies
Put a little something in our lemonade
And take it with us

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

Tiptoe through our shiny city
With our diamond slippers on
Do our gay ballet on ice
Bluebirds 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 to keep track of you falling through the sky

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

We're half awake in a fake empire

It's hard to keep track of you falling through the sky
We're half awake in a fake empire
We're half awake in a fake empire

The polyrythms are having fun messing with my brain.

my uncle showed me this band during a really depressing time in my life. this song pretty much sums up my feelings at that time, and he didn't even know.
