Hey... Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay Her legs spread out before me, as her body once did All five horizons revolved around the sun As the earth to the sun Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn
Oh, and all I taught her was everything Oh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds of what was everything Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything I take a walk outside And I'm surrounded by some kids at play Oh, I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning How quick the sun can, drop away
And now my bitter hands chained to broken glass of what was everything? All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything... All the love gone bad turned my world to black Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll ever be... Yeah...
Uh huh... Uh huh... Ooh... I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be the sun In somebody else's sky, but why Why, why can't it be, can't it be mine?
