I'm Not Simone Choule

from Anatomy Of A Plastic Girl - EP by The Opiates

lyrics

Now I know descending stairs are long
I’ve seen their faces gather, quite aware
This dream could last a lifetime

Now I see my fate ahead of me
I wear her floral dress my teeth are bare
This dream will last forever

And there’s no rest
Despite the silence
And there’s nowhere left to run
There’s a light there
At the bottom
They won’t find me
When I’m done

Now there’ll be someone that isn’t me
The lipstick on my mouth
It isn’t fair
The wig I’ll wear forever

There’s a ghost called isolation
It’s a tenant in my home
Where I will be who they tell me
When I’m down there
They’ll have won

And there’s no rest
Despite the silence
And there’s nowhere left to run
There’s a light there
At the bottom
They won’t find me
When I’m done
