about

Luftschloss (noun): Pipe dream. Literally "sky castle."

lyrics

We stapled three sheets to the window
So we couldn't see the light or hear the wind blow
We disconnected phones and told our friends to leave us alone

We closed our eyes just as the dawn broke
And as the sun rose we yawned and woke
Coffee and cream and attempting to remember our dreams

And it's true we might be living high in a castle in the sky
Forsaking all responsibility
But that don't bother you or I, because we're feeling so alive
We can't imagine there's anything else that we need

I'm afraid our parents resent us
We're unlicensed and licentious
And I stay on the couch downstairs when your folks are home

We stay up all night swapping drunk texts
They leave for work and we have hangover sex
Is it any wonder they hardly ever leave us alone?

And it's true we might be living high in a castle in the sky
Forsaking all responsibility
But that don't bother you or I, because we're feeling so alive
We can't imagine there's anything else that we need
