Nostalgia Goggles

This song was created for Game of Bands round 241 : "Urban Dictionary"

Lyrics:

Daydreams soon plateau
Crumbs and pearls of reverie
Grasping at fixations
Sinking in the depths of discovery

Walls come down in the world inside
Photographs blacken within their shrine
New corrosive stains every other day
Boundaries and barricades get swept away
Shortening the run up towards the edge
Chasms to be crossed without a bridge
Bargaining with wolfs, snakes and fate
Gnawing at the chains of the same old mistakes

One last appeal
One last request
Encase my eyes within
Nostalgia goggles
Exchanging fortunes
And moral dollars
With rose shaded eyes
Nostalgia goggles lie

Thoughts that lay in wait
Gleamed and rattled with sense
Reasoning in revision
Trying to dial in on the send

The castle in the air comes crashing down
Scraps of yesterday for vultures to scrounge
Razing of towers that were built to last
Not a stone or a story will remain uncracked
Every step forced on towards the brink
A fool's paradise will always sink
Bargaining with wolfs, snakes and fate
Gnawing at the chains of the same old mistakes

One last appeal
One last request
Encase my eyes within
Nostalgia goggles
Exchanging fortunes
And moral dollars
With rose shaded eyes
Nostalgia goggles lie

One last appeal
One last request
Encase my eyes within
Nostalgia goggles
Exchanging fortunes
And moral dollars
With rose shaded eyes
Nostalgia goggles lie
[Exit]
