All the shades of grey
Fill my canvas of life
I paint it bright
But the colors fade away
~
Lonely in a crowd
Heartless machines dont see me
I try to talk
But there is no time for them busy bees
~
She runs away
If she sees my empty plate
A glimpse of gold is all she needs
To love me like a saint
~
Terrible lessons I know
Which I tried to always ignore
I gave this world a chance
That it was right and I was wrong
~
Salutations to pretty boy's dad
Now he can sit at home; enjoy the fame
Educated beggers will walk the streets
Knocking on doors; turned back on their heels
~
I carry a burden too much for me
This mountain of sorrows is breaking me
I gave this world a chance, no more
It is foul,filthy and wrong
~
Everyone is painting
The shades of grey
I try to stop them
But they are overwhelming
~
The shades of grey
Ruin my canvas of life
They have left their stains
Of corruption and lies
~
Shades of grey
Till the end of time
