Chromatics – In Films lyrics

Shiny red car
Do you feel so blue?
When you see your friends
Crashing around you?
Lost inside a daydream
In the afternoon
Matinee in black & white
They hide you behind bars
Kept away from view
They'll take you out on sundays
If the skies are blue
Brando at the drive-in
The girls all look at you
They sing like in the pictures
Shiny red car
Do you feel so blue?
You never get the lead
You always wanted to
Stuck in double feature
Freeze framing into view
Action yells director
And you say there's no substitute
And you're always turning blue
And you say there's no reward for you
But all your lies end on a Monday
And we say we've got some things to prove
But we're always wasting time
And you still think that they're all after you
But all your crimes end on a Monday
They hid you behind bars
Kept away from view
They took you out on Sundays
When the skies were blue
James Dean at the drive-in
The girls all looked at you
They sang like in the pictures
