lyrics

Life is not a game
You can play back again
And all those beautiful strokes
Remember how they went
You try now to depict them
Once again

With measured steps
You walk the final test
No regrets
But will you stand up and be counted
Tow the line
Some go insane or go blind
Obeying innocent
Deceitful cryptic signs
Believing true
The bald-faced lie
Cold metal flavour straight
They used to show the way
But curveballs dashed against the glass
Of all their storied claims

Forget-me-nots and nicknames
They sold us grief
With cloying words and killing phrases
But beneath we saw the letters turn to violets
On a meadow-page

A fortune fair
Forgive my sentimental despair
Its echo-touch will trouble me
Not overmuch
Its poison press engraved in me a maze
Hung deep with flowers of defeat
Whose hue exhumed a long-gone play

I beg you grant me this chance to make it through
The hard-earned bars that comfort also close the rainbow
