"A Grand Scene For A Color Film" as written by and Cory Brandan Putman....
Return to sender,Carried straight from the womb to the grave
Your eyes have been paled to emptiness
All thing have been carved out by the unceasing haunts of (this)the Great Manipulator
It's the end of the Earth or something like that
Sit down let's break out the shotguns,Were going to town.
You've given us user friendly grenades
So just what are you trying to say?

    General CommentFull lyrics:

    SIT DOWN!
    Return to sender, I've fallen off the hint of suggestion.
    Unlearning the strange devices of the world.
    It's the end of the earth or something like it, like it.
    The great universal coma has arrived.

    We are holding our hands towards the sun.
    Sit down, come on sit down. Let's break out the shotguns, we're going to town.
    Return to sender, carried straight from the womb to the grave.
    Your eyes have been paled to emptiness.
    All things have been carved out by the unceasing haunts
    of this, the Great Manipulator!

    The holding of our hands upwards and around the eclipsing sun
    has become empty and automatic.
    Sit down, sit down, come on sit down.
    Let's break out the shotguns, we're going to town.
    Let's break out the shotguns, we're going to town!
    You've given us user friendly grenades! Just what are you trying to say?
    Just what are you trying to say? Just what are you trying to say?
    Just what are you trying to say? Just what are you trying to say?
    Just what are you trying to say? Just what are you trying to say?
    Just what are you trying to say? Just what are you trying to say?

    The holding of our hands upwards and around the eclipsing sun
    has become empty and automatic.
    Sit down, sit down, come on sit down.

    The holding of our hands upwards and around the eclipsing sun
    has become empty and automatic.
    Sit down, sit down, come on sit down.

    Let's break out the shotguns, we're going to town!

    General Commentthe first verse sounds nothing like what you have, you're missing the chorus too, all you have is sit down and break out the shotguns we're going to town, there is way more than that in the chorus.

    General CommentI dono because when i listen to it its all right there. the first part is the first part in the song but it jumps lines be creative its there.this is how its written out in the lyric book if Norma Jean wanted us to read between the lines then it should be read like that

    General CommentWow.
    Thanks a friggin billion Myles.

    Did you get those yourself?
    Because norma jean has been so creative in making there whole band.
    Their booklet has hardly any of the lyrics to the album.
    And all the websites don't have them either.
