Pandemonium - Niki

Smoke puffs are white and piling
This head feels like an island
I am my own asylum
Their stares are beady but I don't mind
Let 'em take their time
'Cause there ain't no new light to shed, no, no

Pandemonium calms me down like an ocean, oh (an ocean, oh)
And I'm kissing pillow lips, drunk off saccharine potions, oh
And nothing really matters

'Cause everybody here is dying
Dying out in slow motion
And everybody here is lying, lying
Silently detonating emotions

Read the spaces between the lines
Mind your own business while I grow mine
No it's never personal
Maybe that's the problem
We loosen up every rung on the ladder
Serve up a smile on a silver platter
No one needs a pillar, just a painkiller or two

'Cause everybody here is dying
Dying out in slow motion
And everybody here is lying, lying
Silently detonating emotions

We're dying in the dark
It's written there in the stars
You're understood by so little and loved only from afar
And counting blessings is hard
I don't quite know where to start
The gold is new, but the gray
Well that's just state of the art
And bottoms up to skeletons all bottled up
Always going when the going gets too tough, oh

'Cause everybody here is dying
Dying out in slow motion
And everybody here is lying, lying
Silently detonating emotions

'Cause everybody here is dying
Dying out in slow motion
And everybody here is lying, lying
Silently detonating emotions
'Cause everybody here is dying
