Imagine your brain as a
Canister filled with ink
Yeah, now think of your body
As the pen where the ink resides

Fuse the two; KAPOW!
What are you now?
You're the human magic marker, won't you
Please surprise my eyes?

It's in your nature,
You can paint whatever picture
You like no matter what
Ted Koppel says on channel 4 tonight

So modify this third rock from the sun
By painting myriads of pictures
With the colors of one
I'm sick of painting in black and white

My pen is dry, now I'm uptight
So sick of limiting myself
To fit your definition
Picture the scene, where whatever you thought,

Would, in the blink of an eye,
Manifest and become illustrated
You'd be sure man that every
Line drawn reflected a life that you loved

Not an existence that you hated
So, must we demonstrate that
We can't get it straight?
We've painted a picture,

Now we're drowning in paint
Lets figure out what the fuck it's about
Before the picture we painted
Chews us up and spits us out

I'm sick of painting in black and white
My pen is dry, now I'm uptight
So sick of limiting myself
To fit your definition

Redefine

    General CommentI love this song so much. Its pretty much saying that no matter how much he messes up, does things wrong. God is always there to comfort and forgive him. Its pretty much a prayer to thank god for being so good to him. Like i said this is one of the best songs i ever heard.
