The Real Thing (After Midnight Project)

These pills are the medicine That we use to hide behind when we're awake Money is everything, we blanket ourselves under the greed Fancy cars, elastic smiles, what a show I better wrap my heart in cellophane This is not the real thing This is not real, is not real You fake, you take, you break Every thing around you You still conceal This is not the real thing This is not the real thing I delve for absolution, But my thoughts get distracted by desire Yea it's all about who you know And it's all about being the biggest star The sugar keeps us sweet for an hour at a time All aboard the bullet train This is not the real thing This is not real, is not real You fake, you take, you break Every thing around you You still conceal This is not the real thing This is not I want it all and I want it now Pick me up from the ground then throw me down I'm scared of you Who throws opinions each and every way You're not real You're not real This is not real You're not real You fake, you take, you break Every thing around you You still conceal (This is not real) You fake, you take, you break Every thing around you You still conceal This is not the real thing This is not the real thing I saw you on the screen last night You looked glamorous with pearl, Diamonds and Novocain You looked happier than sin Your bleeding heart is paper-thin You are so far away from where you belong This is not the real thing This is not real, is not real You fake, you take, you break Every thing around you You still conceal This is not the real thing This is not the real thing The real thing
