Empire of suburbia

Base-jumping fantasies                                        back

From the view of balconies

Hearts shaped by broken dreams

Where everything is what it seems

Behold the new kings and queens

The garden party new regime

Greener grass for everyone

Suicides behind the throne

But everything will be ok

Behind the walls of slow decay

The suburbs dressing up tonight

The suburbs dressing up tonight

Empire of suburbia

Dirty deeds on TV-screens

Working on their new routines

Lonely neighbor dressed in green

Taking Polaroid’s of the family teen

Dogs held on short tight leash

Parading down Self-pity Street

Greener grass for everyone

Suicides behind the throne

But everything will be ok

Behind the walls of slow decay

The suburbs dressing up tonight

The suburbs dressing up tonight
