Wipe the darkest shades away Happiness your saving grace Ignorance won't clean the slate Won't find your final resting place
Don't circle 'round the task at hand Or take a fall when you can stand Disregard the reprimand Needing more than secondhand
There's bigger pictures to paint More horizons to chase Something better than searching, reaching Burning, bleeding black and white Deeper oceans to swim Unpredictable whims And you're learning, you're learning Freedom's worth the fight
Dreams dashed with apathy Leave the ledge and set them free Scaling walls in disbelief Oh, you can't climb when you can't dream
Tied up & bound in the cords of our conviction Got my bag of tricks & my pocket full of luck Watercolor, paint by number, a reminder of another Telling me to stay in line But I'm suffocating...
Pictures to paint (How to laugh) Horizons to chase (How to cry) Better than searching (How to live with saying goodbye) Bleeding, bleeding black and white Oceans to swim (How to change) Unpredictable whims (Break away from it all) And you're learning (Freedom's worth the fight)
