{lyrics}

the sky a hallucination of colours,
staining the world and staining my skin,
clouded rainbows and drowning sin,
this is the world we live in.

so where does all the colour go
when my vision is blurred and
there's nothing left to show?

all this painted world is
watercolour
merging into blended
self-destruction 
we're artists at heart
but we pull this world apart
a cycle of madness
where is the art?

the sky alight with our fire,
burning a hole of desire,
cracked hands and beaten feet 
this is the world we live in.

so where does all the colour go
when my vision is blurred and
there's nothing left to show?

all this painted world is
watercolour
merging into blended
self-destruction 
we're artists at heart
but we pull this world apart
a cycle of madness
where is the art?

are we waiting for 
the walls to fall to our feet 
are we waiting for 
the earth to save us at least
but the colours don't light up our street
give up or face the defeat

all this painted world is
watercolour
merging into blended
self-destruction 
we're artists at heart
but we pull this world apart
a cycle of madness
where is the art?

where is our art?
