The Colorless Rebellion

lyrics

The documents were signed,
now our lives are underlined.
Be good, be well, be kind.
And always pay your debts.
I'm feeling manic every day,
until it all comes crashing down,
this new world that is all around
and in it I am bound with barbed wire.
I'm trying my best just to play the part
Of the husband who loves his job
Not the one whose breathing hard
as the panic attacks set in
And everything I knew, was gone without a shot
with no plan, no map, no arc.
No inkling of where to go, or who I am. Anymore.

I have to think about these things now.
And it's a personal hell, believe me.
And I'm not so sure, I'll ever think again
To go where I've gone before.

Sway back and forth and never choose,
what really matters to you
Until twenty years have passed
and you're still without a clue
Of what to do with your life
Should have tried while you had time
some impressionable textbook life
conditioned by the system

Hey you, on that stage
With that cross to bear
to wear as fashion on your sleeve

Hey you, on that stage,
with your six string in tow,
on a screen for a;ll the world

Hey you, on that stage,
With your part to play,
to escape from yourself.

Hey you, on that stage
With those thorns upon your head
those horns upon your head..

Not anymore, not anymore.
I have to think about these things now.
And it's a personal hell, believe me.
I wish that I could support a better life,
for us to share.

But I'm not undone,
I'm not hanging it up just yet.
No I'm not undone,
I'm not hanging it up just yet.
