AFI – Paper Airplanes lyrics

Raise high monolithic statues so fragile.
As they fall, I am ever enthralled
Gaze, lie and smirk in time.
Your arrogance will suit you well
'til fashion is dispelled.

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
you're going out (going out) forever unknown
these waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
you're going out (going out) forever unknown

From above a rain of ashes descends.
Anathema I will remain (forever will remain)
From below, in my seclusion
look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn.

Without habitation.
You'll never find a soul inside, no life, but nothing's died.
No lights, but quite the show
(just as long as no one ever knows all motion is pantomime.)

Dancing in the rain of descending ash. Dancing on your grave.
I'll see you all falling.
Dancing in the rain of descending ash
Dancing in your dust
I'll see you all falling.
I'd stop it, had you a heart.
