lyrics

I am the queen of diamonds, this is my house of cards
I thought it was worth thousands, thousands, thousands till it fell apart
This is my friend Diana, she is the Queen of Hearts
Behind the blond and glamour, glamour, everybody plays a part

In a world of madness, everybody copes
Building paper houses, burning paper hopes
In a world of madness, everybody copes
Painting paper dreams and lifting up their souls to paper hopes

They found him dead on Tuesday – shotgun suicide
Model student, A-grade, A-grade
Poison-bleeding soul inside
He had been slowly fading, eyes like drawn blinds
He had everything but nothing, nothing
Nothing worth a damn inside

In a world of madness, everybody copes
Building paper houses, smoking paper hopes
In a world of madness, everybody copes
Painting paper dreams and lifting up their souls to paper hopes
