  • Living in colour, living in colour
    I can see the paint on your toes
    Living in colour
    Even in the blackout, I know

    I am floating, I, I am floating
    With my eyes closed, with no sails
    I am soaking, I am weathered by the winter of mixed drinks

    Am I dancing am am I nervous simply spinning in my own grave
    You were asking, you, you were asking
    And with two steps, I'm saved

    Living in colour, living in colour
    I can see the paint on your toes
    Living in colour
    Even in the blackout, I know

    Weeks gone by, I was weak
    I was paler than a pine box that holds bones
    She poked the iris, then she pierced a hole
    And watched the colour rush forth

    Modern Madonna, who held my head in
    Warm hands, with pink nails
    Mark my mouth, whisper that the sickness will go away

    Living in colour, living in colour
    I can see the paint on your toes
    Living in colour
    Even in the blackout, I know

    Living in colour, living in colour
    I can see the paint on your toes
    Living in colour
    Even as I blackout, I know

    And though I dreamt with a rapid eye
    By day I hope to rapidly die
    And have my organs laid on ice
    Wait for somebody that would treat them right
    And as the night started swallowing
    You put the blood to my blue lips
    Forced the life through still veins
    Filled my heart with red again

    Living in colour, living in colour
    I can see the paint on your toes
    Living in colour
    Even in the blackout, I know

    Living in colour, living in colour
    I can see the paint on your toes
    Living in colour
    Even in the blackout, I know

    Living in colour, living in colour
    I can see the paint on your toes
    Living in colour
    Even as I blackout, I know Publisher: DOMINO PUBLISHING COMPANY
