about

a song about primary colors, political pundits, and misguided support.

lyrics

Last chance Charlie, watch the sun
Break the chain from the one you love
Crystal visions can drive you mad
Remembering what we had

Hear me calling out your name
I don't know all the words to say
blue green colours flashing scenes
I still wish i was your only

waiting at your gate
still you make me pay
you held you on a shelf
but you blame somebody else

battle lines are being drawn
in strategies that won't take long
tired of love when somethings wrong
is it sacrifice to play along?

see my walls, their crumbling
the coffee's black but the eggs are green
trace my steps back to the scene
give me hope or set me free

waiting at your gate
still you make me pay
you held you on a shelf
but you blame somebody else

there's understating that jealousy
it was overrated
believe it now, it was all for you
i'm ready to take that vow
i only wish that you knew

waiting at your gate
still you make me pay
you held you on a shelf
but you blame somebody else

waiting at your gate
still you make me pay
you held you on a shelf
but you blame somebody else
