lyrics

The paper, the pen
It shone the rock until the end
Alive inside a colour crystal mind
The picture is black
Dwelling in the comfort of black
She likes to pin her pretty pictures
Now and then

Much of her time she's escaped from her mind
Between blue skies and rationality
She wants to see like she is free
and all of her dreams, they are what they seem
An inverted choice for a mind that has a voice
She only wants to set them free
She wants to set them free
She wants to set them free
She wants to set them free

She insists that they move
and change very soon
She wants a stable man to keep
Keep in her life
Maybe a wife
If he gives up all that he can
and then he stopped doing everything fun
So they could stand one by one
The drugs, the verse
It's only a curse

Her name has changed
The opposite of what she became
She likes to use the names of the criminally insane
She's dark, her skin
Underneath her colours have been
No more
She thinks a normal person is a bore

Inside of her womb, she'll bare very soon
A boy who will charm will come prepared and armed
Against whatever she has to give
Inside of her dreams, they are what they seem
Opulent glory as well as the mystery
She only wants to set them free
She wants to set them free
She wants to set them free
She wants to set them free

The daylight is night
The moon is the sun
and all the clouds are filled with rain
Her thoughts in the atmosphere
To house all her cares
and everybody here will stare
and wonder what will happen when we all die
Is there a heaven in the bright blue sky?
From here to there will we go anywhere?
