I have let you melt me dow
Into a plastic rainbow
And I have left myself to hang
In a halloween sky
I let you tattoo a frown
Onto a face of white snow
Now I see footprints of a man
Running through my eyes
Do I despise these perfect lies
I tell myself each night and day
Go kiss by blackened heart goodbye
I’m running out of things to play
Hey, see I need to forget
That I’ve become a plastic rainbow
And I’m melting in the sun
And I have fallen from the sky
In a million multi-coloured lies
I’ve had enough of your ideals, ideals yeah
I’m gonna break her like a Barbie Doll
Push her face down in the dirt
Blue Maybelline mascara
Is running down my favourite shirt
And whoever thought that messing with me
Was ever gonna hurt?
Your plastic swords, too many times
In black suspenders and her mini-skirts
Do I despise these perfect lies
I tell myself each night and day
Go kiss by blackened heart goodbye
I’m running out of things to play
Hey, see I need to forget
That I’ve become a plastic rainbow
And I’m melting in the sun
And I am falling from the sky
In a million multi-coloured lies
I’ve had enough of your ideals, ideals yeah
Yeah, I became a plastic rainbow
Yeah, I fell from the sky
In a million multi-coloured lies
Your commerce helped for a while
But now all I seem to do is…
Smile
Do I smile.

Marina and the Diamonds - Simplify - Lyrics


Lately I have realised
That I need to simplify
Thoughts pass like ships in the sky
Do, or do not, there is no try


Chorus:
Life became complicated
When modern times arrived
Monopoly is underrated
I want a different life
They say, well get out of the city
We say, well there’s no such thing
As a house in the country (in the country)


I am trying to rectify
Habits that clog up my mind
No time to be meek and mild
Live simply like a child


(Chorus)


Simplify, your life
Simplify, life


Grandpa was a minor
And he gave me my black art
Glittered rivers of black coal dust
Tore our country apart
Covered in coal dust
Waking up too early in the morning
Covered in coal dust
Waiting for the moment the canary sings
Mama was a mermaid
And a Carnaby Street gal
She could have been a model
But she spent her life mopping up spilt milk
Covered in sea salt
Would he, could he, be home when the stars came out to party
Covered in sea salt
Yeah I know it was my fault
That he always ran away because he didn’t want me
Oh, daddy was a sailor
And he gave me a black heart
Oh, daddy was a sailor
The only man that could tear me apart
Daddy, daddy, daddy
Sister dances salsa
And she chants just like a queen
I was a non-believer when she told me I was free
Auntie Emy was a medium
And she worked the Ouija board
Seeking out the lost souls
And taking men back to the Lord
Oh but daddy still was a sailor
And he gave me a black heart
Oh, daddy was a sailor
The only man that could tear me apart
Daddy, daddy, daddy


Yeah I feel I’m watered down
Whenever he’s around
I put on the crown of clowns
And melt slowly to the ground
Yeah I feel it coming on
When I’ve been static for too long
And an explosion comes in time
Before I go and cross the line
Oh yeah, I go and cross the line
Think before you blurt
Out the words you say to hurt
Coz next week you’ll be all ooo ooo
They say you used to be so kind
I never knew you had such a dirty mind
Well, I went to the doctors believing
The devil had control over me
I was finding it hard to breath and
Finding it hard to fight the feeling


That my heart just burst like a glass balloon
And that it fly too high and it shattered too soon
I was the wrong damn girl in the wrong damn room
I broke my glass balloon
I let go of my glass balloon


Oh oh oh
They call him Hermit the Frog
He’s looking for a dog
Did you find a bitch in me
Oh you’re abominable socially
You’re just a little bit too much like me
Think before you blurt
Out the words you say to hurt
Coz last week I was so ooo ooo
But now it’ll be you ooo ooo
She says you used to be so kind
Well baby I give you your dirty mind
Well I, I wanna tell you a secret
You can take your double standard love and keep it
I can’t help the devil likes to make my heart a double bed
And I can’t help he sometimes like to come and rest his little head


When my heart just burst like a glass balloon
We let them fly too high and they shattered too soon
They’ll be the wrong damn people in the wrong damn room
We broke our glass balloons
We let go of their glass balloons
We broke our glass balloons
Let go of my glass balloon
