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

    General CommentTo me this song is about someone..not a figure of your imagination..its a person going through hard times and just having that special someone there by your side. A person you can turn to, one that helps when your feeling down. One that helps when you just need something other then yourself to bring you back when you just cant anymore. Might not make sense but I know what I mean..the point is to have a song mean what you think it should mean by the way your living your life. Not all song means the same to everyone. Thats why a song can be so powerful and moving. This is a GREAT song by Soil. They do rock the heck on. Wish I could see them in concert. Take this song to heart. It can make or break you. Live your life one day at a time. I always thought there isnt anyone out there to give to shits if I live or die. But thats not the case. And im VERY NON religious. I dont believe in a god or any god. I dont people should judge so quick when they say something like this. JUDGE NOT!!!
