"Painting The White To Grey" as written by Mark Hunter, Robert Arnold, Jim Lamarca, Chris Spicuzza, Andy Herrick and Jason Hager....
Face I am nothing face
Complete by sarcastic tastes
What a waste I think I'd rather die
Wanting never gaining I find myself pondering life
Always situations I can never hide
Crying tears of anger, hate

Depressed I never know the me, never know what to do
Slit pour out the life a bottle of the "vive"
A desperate cry for something else to justify
I'm in a daze caused by pain
A failing force that wants to change
Painting the white to grey
Numb body shivering
Blood dripping from the skin
Painting the white to grey
Plastic always drastic

A vision of a psychopathic with a razor crawling through the attic
I know somewhere out there someone cares
Wanting me to get my head out of the clouds as they think it's time repair
These scars will never clear
I'll never be the same little one with hopes of one day maybe being sane
I might have tried before, but I locked the door
Now I need a reason to unlock it
I'm in a daze caused by pain
A failing force that wants to change
Painting the white to gray
Numb body shivering
Blood dripping from the skin
Painting the white to gray
Cutting and popping

I know I'm not the definition of your model I'm always dropping
Lying and crying
I rarely find the relevance in always competing or trying
I take dying
I need to feel the shame in what it was that I did
Cold
In the back of a puppeteer bathroom floor is where I tried to die

    General CommentYeah basically its a good life gone horribly wrong, and the only way to get out is death. I'm not suicidal, but I keep repeating "I rarely find the relevance of always competing or trying I'll take dying" in my head. this song is deep and heavy. yet another masterpiece from chimaira

    General Commenti dont think it's good life gone horrible wrong... it sounds more like a battle with depression for a long time where the person tried to do something in the beginning but at this stage it doesn't matter anymore.
    either way, the song is awesome. my favorite Chimaira song.

    General CommentIf your listning to this on Pass Out If Existance, your missing out BIG TIME. Get it off of their ep This Present Darkness (it comes with there Dehumanising Process DVD). This origional sounds so much better and so much darker than the remix on existance.
    LOVE the song....

    General CommentPlastic, always drastic
    Vision of a psychopathic with a razor
    Crawling through the attic
    I know somewhere out there someone cares
    Wanting me to get my head out of the clouds
    As they think its time,
    Repair
    The scars will never clear
    I'll never be the same little one
    With the hopes of one day maybe being sane
    I might have tried before but i locked the door
    I just need a reason to unlock it
