"The State of Dreaming" is a song by Marina and the Diamonds on her second studio album, Electra Heart. The song was used as part nine in The Archetypes video series.

Background and compositionEdit

"The State of Dreaming" was written about the public's memory of Marilyn Monroe. Inspired by a tweet reading, "Message to girls, stop living off that one quote," Diamandis wrote the song about how people can choose to remember and perceive people any way they please. She further added, "[Monroe] basically died in this really undignified way. It inspired me as people are living off this one quote...It's connected with deception and how people see this beautiful image of her when she was a really deep troubled person and that one image is strong enough to make people behave in a certain way".[1]
