"The Missing Shade of Blue" takes on a light exploration into the differences between our mind's capabilities and our imposed limits. With a tinge of escapism, it is open to interpretation as dreams would be to their dreamer. It retains its title from the concept of creating our own color.

"The Missing Shade of Blue"

Within a realm of forbidding
Where masses continue; seething
Confined in dear life; unwilling
Unchain from strife; believing

Here, within, lies another dimension
of worlds so true, so full of tension
with feelings so true, we feel the pain
but little do we know that it's all in vain

Here then, lays the blank canvas
the unfilled crevice, the quartz glass
without a whisper we imagine a single thorn
and so, in an instant, life is born

Oh, the enchant of the nude mind form
Wholly unbound, unrestrained by a lone sly storm
And yet, even in such dominance
we remain powerless by recognizance
without feeling the severe aftershock
bound by thought and mind, thunderstruck

So shall the divine overflow
And so shall obscurity grow
Though light always finds it's way
Who are we to think, or even say?
For thoughts are easily misplaced
Trapped inside our mental case

As our phantom builds it's crescendo
So it's secretive voice begins to echo
A melody is heard within that is not ignored
Thus, a new meaning is naturally implored
And so, is thy mind truly thine?
Or brought to life by a sensory lie?
