They were molded into form
and scattered cross the floor for miles
In ranks of one through 94
in plastic uniforms they'd fight

And we would gather in our haze
and put them into place for battle
Commander bulletproof and brave
Surrounded in some cave with no escape

And you believed it could be real
if we just closed our eyes and tried
to make them come to life

And minutes spent would pass in days
and all our bones would shake and rattle
Until the walls came crumbling down
They wouldn't make a sound, just shadows

The battlefield will sleep till dawn
but we will soldier on in our dreams
and stumble on some secret door
imaginary wars, we will fight
