Perfect Crystal World

This song was created for Game of Bands round 250 : "Mods vs. Everyone"

Lyrics:

Verse 1
Keep an eye out for the limo
Jesus Christ is coming
Wearing diamond studded garments
And his skin, they say, is stunning
Everybody clear a pathway
The red carpet’s been rolled down
He strolls into the theatre
His entourage surrounds

Pre-Chorus
But behind the wave and blinding smile
Is light that burns the eyes
A glistening bit of salty water
Welling up that does belie

Chorus
A perfect crystal world
Insulated air
Calculated fantasies
For all the fans to share
A perfect crystal world
Undulating on a ledge
Blurring all the emptiness
That lies beyond the edge

Verse 2
In a hollow hotel room
The ceiling feels so low
Though there’s space enough for legions
Still the walls, they seem to close
The table makes him angry
So he smashes it to bits
Takes his knife and shreds the curtains
Breaks the mirror with his fist

Pre-Chorus
He’ll pay for all his rage again
It’s known with words unsaid
Yet still the lasting loneliness
Rings loudly in his head

Chorus
A perfect crystal world
Insulated air
Calculated fantasies
For all the fans to share
A perfect crystal world
Undulating on a ledge
Blurring all the emptiness
That lies beyond the edge

Bridge
And if he falls, he fears
There’s nothing but the void
But maybe that’s the only
Way to stop the noise
Building grand illusions
A double sided blade
Surrounded by a gilded cage
That he alone has made

Pre-Chorus
His mother used to tell him
As mother’s sometimes do
Be careful what you wish for
Your wish might just come true

Chorus
A perfect crystal world
Insulated air
Calculated fantasies
For all the fans to share
A perfect crystal world
Undulating on a ledge
Blurring all the emptiness
That lies beyond the edge
[Exit]
