Pick up the fallen pieces Try to rebuild the broken frame Around a tattered painting Of our reality Swirling hues of black and grey Dance on the matted canvas A dark depiction of the Life that we all deserve We built this with our hands Our blood, our fear, our lies, our selfish want and callousness This is who we are Each brush stroke a scar on the face of the world A play on light and colour To mask the form that's underneath It is no accident The truth is so hard to see Lifetime spent in torment To shape this horrid tapestry Every decision made Led to this tragedy We dare not look away For fear of what will take its place For fear of what we can't unsee We built this with our hands Our blood, our fear, our lies, our selfish want and callousness This is who we are Each brush stroke a scar on the face of the world We could try to cover it with something less abhorrent We could try to tear it down but the mark remains There is no shade dark enough To stop the stain from bleeding through There is no shade bright enough To cover up the horrid truth We are what we create Our actions speak of our hate But it is not too late To face our reflections You choose the colours and the shape How deep the layers go Cover up your mistakes with happy accidents With every change that you make The guide lines disappear And the scene you create becomes your legacy Each brush stroke a scar on the world This is the end of us if we can’t fight back This is our final countdown We built this with our hands Our blood, our fear, our lies, our selfish want and callousness This is who we are Each brush stroke a scar on the face of the world
