lyrics

I was adrift
The punchline within your fist
And I was resigned
The critical flaw in your grand design

What is amiss?
Do you try to endeavor instead of exist?
And I was entwined
Caught in a wish I could never define

So what do you seek, do you hope to find?
A broken halo, a beautiful mind?
From a grassy knoll
You cut a hole and we climbed inside
Still pouring through
This slipstream view of the great divide

It was a masterstroke
A killing joke with a golden trace
A masterpiece with a fast release to a hidden place
And in the vast expanse
We fell entranced in a tangled haze
It’s all monochrome
But which way is home when the color fades?

We were in bliss
Dissolved down, drowned in the rift
You could call it divine
Drunk on the shine that'd never subside

And we were a risk
How can you hold on to more than a myth?
Do you miss the sublime?
Nothing out of our hands at the end of the line

So why do you fear what'll free your mind?
Are you taking aim, trying to turn the tide?
From a grassy knoll
you cut a hole and we climbed inside
We're still pouring through
This slipstream view of the great divide

It was a masterstroke
A killing joke with a golden trace
A masterpiece with a fast release to a hidden place
And in the vast expanse
We fell entranced in a tangled haze
It’s all monochrome
But which way is home when the color fades?
