Don’t look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, trapped in my minefield
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?

And I know, you will never believe
I play as though I’m alright
If life is but a dream, then
Wake me up

Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from Hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
Daydream until all the blue is gone
Don’t look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, trapped in my minefield
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?

And I know, you will never believe
I play as though I’m alright
If life is but a dream, then
Wake me up

Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from Hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
Daydream until all the blue is gone
Don’t look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, trapped in my minefield
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?

And I know, you will never believe
I play as though I’m alright
If life is but a dream, then
Wake me up

Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from Hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
Daydream until all the blue is gone
Don’t look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, trapped in my minefield
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?

And I know, you will never believe
I play as though I’m alright
If life is but a dream, then
Wake me up

Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from Hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
Daydream until all the blue is gone
Don’t look, just keep your eyes peeled
Thoughtless, trapped in my minefield
Shotgun, never behind the wheel anymore
Danger, monsters of smoke and mirror
Slowly, can one so lost be found?

And I know, you will never believe
I play as though I’m alright
If life is but a dream, then
Wake me up

Fallen leaves realize they are no friend of autumn
The view from Hell is blue sky
So ominously blue
Daydream until all the blue is gone
