Shades of grey were the colors of my soul
Accepted miseries embraced for oh so long

The hands of time sweeping all my dreams away
Lost in a circumstantial maze

Moving on to another day
Searching for a brighter shade of grey

A somber silhouette displays the beauty of a dream
Until I realized your open eyes in front of me

You color my life with everything you do
And this open road only leads me back to you

Moving on to another day
Searching for a better way (a better way)
Seek and you will find the cure a blessing in disguise right before your eyes

    General CommentI think this is about someone who has held onto an unpopular, outdated viewpoint for most of their lives. No one knows why they cling to it, and the reason is irrelevant. They're someone whose ideas may have been respected at one time, but now they're mostly discredited, maybe even referred to as a "has-been".

    It seems like they're starting to reach the point where they're growing to realize that this viewpoint they hold onto so tenaciously is a dead-end street, yet they've clung to it for so long, it seems like it's the only way they know how to live. The chorus encourages them to open their eyes (and mind) and see that there are other viewpoints they can embrace without losing who they are in the process.
