There is fiction in the space between
Write it down but it doesn't mean
There is fiction in the space between
You will do and say anything
There is fiction in the space between

You and me
Where I am the scary monster
In my spaceship I am laughing
There's no one but you standing
Leave the pity and the blame
You write the words to get respect and compassion
You write the words and make believe

You and everybody
Give us one more sad sordid story
Sometimes a lie is the best thing

Is the best thingThere is fiction in the space between
Write it down but it doesn't mean
There is fiction in the space between
You will do and say anything
There is fiction in the space between

You and me
Where I am the scary monster
In my spaceship I am laughing
There's no one but you standing
Leave the pity and the blame
You write the words to get respect and compassion
You write the words and make believe

You and everybody
Give us one more sad sordid story
Sometimes a lie is the best thing

Is the best thing
