Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Visions of you dance through my head
Dark Heroine of the books I have read
Pages torn out, I made up my own world

Deep in the dream, it's all built to last
You'll pull the plug, drain me down fast
Pop my balloon, I fell from a great high

[Chorus 1]
And I'm tired of wasting life
Searching out, going round
What became such a false alarm

'Cause I'm looking for the truth
Not some tired, cheap cliche
False treasure in a shallow pond, alright

[Verse 2]
Fireworks blew out the top of your head
Powder and spark drew me to bed
Drift with you there down a dark and frozen stream

I thought I'd found Jewel of the Nile
You're just a shiny rock in my pile
So many stones, stuck in my shoes

[Chorus 2]
And I know if there's enough
It could make up a road
That could lead me far from this town

'Cause I'm looking for the truth
Not some tired, cheap cliche
False treasure in a shallow pond

[Outro]
And I'm tired of wasting life
Searching out, going round
What became such false alarm

Just a false alarm
Just a false alarm
Just a false alarm...
