lyrics

LYRICS: by Deacon Burns
Color Outside The Lines
Color Outside The Lines
Color Outside The Lines
You've got to
Color Outside The Lines
Color Outside The Lines
Let me live long enough to die
there's been no compromise to my demise
schizophrenic thoughts of the mind just can't be defined
when you Color Outside The Lines

My fragile egg-shell brain contains the spirit of my father, grandmother, and my dead son.
The world is a runaway train and my back is stuck to the tracks
embrace fate cause i can't run
I guess i'm being taught a lesson cause I refused to listen
deaf ear to God's wisdom
Time is an illusion which has a purpose in this three-ring circus
so take your position
For I'm the Deacon in quick sand sinking
hands to the sky praying for my redemption
the bastard son of an addict
mentally in prison, slave to temptation and the rhythm
I need a vacation from this situation
don't know if i'm coming or going, drowning in temptation
the pressure keeps building so I keep drinking to keep my brain from overloading

Color Outside The Lines
Color Outside The Lines
You've got to
Color Outside The Lines
Color Outside The Lines
Let me live long enough to die
there's been no compromise to my demise
schizophrenic thoughts of the mind just can't be defined
when you Color Outside The Lines

I'm at the bottom of the great black pit
covered in piss and shit, can't do a damn thing about it
except call out to Kaya
drowning in fire water, but i can't breath without it
When you're a never was, hard to remember what it was that made you want to do music
I'm being punished for my habits but I can't control what I inherit
I feel like a hobbit trying to get to Mordor in a fuckin wheelchair, i can't make it
I'm form without content, only content when i'm wasted
nothing but abuse and substance
i'm giving you my two-week notice
emotional sickness
life makes me nauseous
I feel so useless like the dick on a full-blown paraplegic,
life's a bitch!

Color Outside The Lines
Color Outside The Lines
You've got to
Color Outside The Lines
Color Outside The Lines
Let me live long enough to die
there's been no compromise to my demise
schizophrenic thoughts of the mind just can't be defined
when you Color Outside The Lines
