Colors

  • Your little brother never tells you but he loves you so
    You said your mother only smiled on her tv show
    You're only happy when your sorry head is filled with dope
    I hope you make it to the day you're twenty-eight years old

    You're dripping like a saturated sunrise
    You're spilling like an overflowing sink
    You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
    And now i'm tearing through the pages and the ink

    Everything is blue
    His pills, his hands, his jeans
    And now i'm covered in the colors pull apart at the seams
    And it's blue
    And it's blue

    Everything is grey
    His hair, his smoke, his dreams
    And now he's so devoid of color
    He don't know what it means
    And he's blue
    And he's blue

    You were a vision in the morning when the light came through
    I know I've only felt religion when i've lied with you
    You said you'll never be forgiven till your boys are too
    And I'm still waking every morning but it's not with you

    You're dripping like a saturated sunrise
    You're spilling like an overflowing sink
    You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
    And now I'm tearing through the pages and the ink

    Everything is blue
    His pills, his hands, his jeans
    And now I'm covered in the colors Pull apart at the seams
    And it's blue
    And it's blue

    Everything is grey
    His hair, his smoke, his dreams
    And now he's so devoid of color
    He don't know what it means
    And he's blue
    And he's blue

    You were red, and you liked me because I was blue
    But you touched me, and suddenly I was a lilac sky
    Then you decided purple just wasn't for you


    Everything is blue
    His pills, his hands, his jeans
    And now I'm covered in the colors pull apart at the seams
    And it's blue
    And it's blue

    Everything is grey
    His hair, his smoke, his dreams
    And now he's so devoid of color
    He don't know what it means
    And he's blue
    And he's blue
