My Body

 

You draw me in disguise and paint me paralyzed it’s true.

You trace me as you see, the darkest color deepest blue.

I’m heavy in this chair, sharp corners frame my back while –

You draw me in disguise and paint me paralyzed it’s true.

When they come to find me then please burn my body.

 

Chorus

A broad stroke extinguishes this fire.

Paint me screaming into the sprawl.

I tried to draw you too –

But in bad taste and with poor choice

And I can’t paint like you do, tragic precision, perfect void.

I’m sleeping in this chair –

While you sleep in the hallway.

You draw me in disguise,

And paint me paralyzed it’s true.

When they come to find me, then please burn my body.

 

Chorus
