"Dorian Gray" as written by and William Roy Francis....
Live through the ages Witness my friends rust and turn to ash Break down in phases And yet my skin is perfect glass I have kept this portrait in pristine care I have kept my secret well Until the day comes when the loneliness Is oh too much to bare Would you embrace me with open arms? Would you encase me in a picture of my heart?
Dorian Gray Already headed to hell Take me away Pick a side and place a bet Dorian Gray Have you something to sell I’ve got your bodice and your dress
Turn back the time To the fearless boy I was so long ago She is love she is filth she can destroy my soul
“Intellect in itself is a mode of exaggeration” “An artist should create beautiful things but should put nothing of his own life into them” “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it” “If the cave man had known how to laugh history would have been different”
I have kept my portrait clean I have kept my secret well Now the day has come The sun has burned away Follow me

    Lyric CorrectionProper formatting to save the day! This song is about Dorian Gray, the man who sold his soul so that his painting of himself would age instead of him.


    Live through the ages
    Witness my friends rust and turn to ash
    Break down in phases
    And yet my skin is perfect glass

    I have kept this portrait in pristine care
    I have kept my secret well
    Until the day comes when the loneliness
    Is, oh, too much to bear

    Would you embrace me with open arms?
    Would you encase me in a picture of my heart?

    Dorian Gray, already headed to hell
    Take me away, pick a side and place a bet
    Dorian Gray, have you something to sell?
    I've got your bodice and your dress

    Turn back the time
    To the fearless boy I was so long ago
    She is love, she is filth
    She can destroy my soul

    Would you embrace me with open arms?
    Would you encase me in a picture of my heart?

    Dorian Gray, already headed to hell
    Take me away, pick a side and place a bet
    Dorian Gray, have you something to sell?
    I've got your bodice and your dress

    Dorian Gray, already headed to hell
    Take me away, pick a side and place a bet
    Dorian Gray, have you something to sell?
    I've got your bodice and your dress

    Intellect in itself is a mode of exaggeration
    An artist should create beautiful things
    But should put nothing of his own life into them

    The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it
    If the cave man had known how to laugh
    History would have been different

    I have kept my portrait clean
    I have kept my secret well
    Now the day has come
    The sun has burned away
    Follow me, follow me, follow me, follow me

    Dorian Gray, already headed to hell
    Take me away, pick a side and place a bet
    Dorian Gray, have you something to sell?
    I've got your bodice and your dress
