lyrics

Verse
Who painted you this picture of me and how do they know
About the colour of eyes and how my hair does grow
And where is this I'm living
In a dwelling on a land
In a world I've never seen before
Where the truths blow away in the sand

Chorus
Those who choose the colours and the canvass to paint on
Choose the way the easel point and the brush to paint us all

Verse
Why do I look angry and why do my clothes look old
Why's there a pitchfork in the corner under a shotgun on the wall
There are holes in my new curtains
Dirty are the pots and pans
And with just one stroke of the painter's brush
To you she reveals who I am

Chorus
Those who choose the colours and the canvass to paint on
Choose the way the easel point and the brush to paint us all

Solo
(Who paints us all? Who?)
