Saturday morning a while before daylight I'm
Lying here hoping for rain
By tomorrow I could be anywhere
Passing streetcars alive without breathing
I'm lost in the city again
Without a purpose I can't believe anything
And I know it's not my place
To be asking these questions but I know I
Can't just chase every world that I see
Because

This isn't real life
This isn't happening
Seems so believable
But it's not the real thing
This isn't real life
It's just some enormous lie
And I know I'll be fine this isn't real life

Such a mystery
Am I supposed to believe these illusions are real
Out of focus, step out of character
Into a world I can feel
Maybe it's only a sense of propriety
Keeping us grounded at all
Or we'd run screaming
Into the morning and out of control
Maybe I can find some piece of a world I can handle
Or a common line, any one sign
All a part of me

This isn't real life
This isn't happening
Seems so believable
But it's not the real thing
This isn't real life
It's just an enormous lie
And we'll be fine if we can find a real life

Listen
The world is listening in
Every name and number
Suddenly I can't believe my eyes
We're gonna need those alibis
Hoping it all just fades away
Maybe they're all just paper
Airplanes and imaginary cries
They're not your neighbor
We all have our alibis
We've got our reasons and our reasonable words
But we all just hide our eyes and make believe we never heard
And when the sirens rise
We're gonna need those alibis
Helpless and hopeless on the screen
Maybe another channel
Might change the dialogue
To talk about it doesn't hurt at all

We all have our alibis
We've got our reasons and our reasonable words
We talk and talk as though there's nothing to it
We can change it all
As long as we don't have to do it
We all have our alibis
We've got our reasons and we
Lie and lie and lie
We all have our alibis
We've got our reasons
And if we're not afraid to fall
We're not listening at all
And when the silence fills the sky
We're gonna need those alibis
What does it matter if they're all lies
