An Empty Picture Of Colorful Memories


I've seen the skies crack open
Seen it's blood falling on my face
Blurring the contours, blurring the faith
That I have kept to save myself

It all leaks down my stare
I'm counting the drops, counting the pains
And a tired breath filled with rage
Exhausts the last bit of my soul

The lack of conscience redemptions these days
'Cause I don't seem to know where sanity awaits
Although the scenery is running out of color
I seem to find the stripes to paint a life

A life in black and white
A life in contrast
An empty picture
Of colorful memories

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
