paper airplanes (makeshift wings) (demo version) lyrics – afi

paper airplanes (makeshift wings) (demo version)

raise high, monolithic, statues so fragile as they fall.
(i am, ever enthralled)
gaze, lie and smirk in time, your arrogance will suit you well.
(’till fashion is dispelled)

as waves of plastic fame go out of fashion,
you’re going out, going out forever unknown.
these waves of plastic fame go out of fashion.
(these waves of plastic fame are drying up and i smile)
you’re going out, going out forever unknown
(because you’re dying to become forever unknown, unknown)

from above a rain of ashes descends
anathema i will remain, forever will remain
from below, in my seclusion
look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn

without habitation, you’ll never find a soul inside
no life, but nothing’s died
no lights, but quite the show (just as long as no one ever knows
all motion is pantomime)

as waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
you’re going out, going out forever unknown
these waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
(these waves of plastic fame are drying up and i smile)
you’re going out, going out forever unknown
(because you’re dying to become forever unknown, unknown)

from above a rain of ashes descends
anathema i will remain, forever will remain
from below, in my seclusion
look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn

dancing in the rain of descending ash
dancing on your grave, i’ll see you all falling
dancing in the rain of descending ash
dancing in your dust, i’ll see you all falling
i’d stop it, had you a heart (your heart)
i’d stop it, had you a heart (your heart)

from above a rain of ashes descends
anathema i will remain, forever will remain
from below, in my seclusion
look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn

from above a rain of ashes descends
anathema i will remain, forever will remain
from below, in my seclusion
look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn
