lyrics

Overnight
the world went fake
Everything has been replaced
With pale imitations
Gray reflections
The food has no taste

Surrounded by automatons
Programmed not to see what's going on
Cheap props
and flimsy sets
A tired plot
and bad effects

It never rains anymore
Not like it did when you were here
The wind is tame and bored
The gray skies never clear

I go to sleep and I wake up
Nothing's changed
Everything is still the same
Still the same
Broken rain

Another copy of the day
Standing in the broken rain
I know it wasn't
always like this
I remember how we used
to kiss

Living in an infinite loop
All the drugs can't hide the truth
Love made it real
Your love made it real

It never rains anymore
Not like it did when you were here
The wind is tame and bored
And the gray skies never clear

It never rains anymore
Not like it did when you were here
The wind is tame and bored
And the storm never appears

I go to sleep and I wake up
Nothing's changed
Everything is still the same
Still the same
Broken rain
