Colorblind Mania



A glowing warmth is creeping up my spine
This surge of magic shocks me every time
From head to heart to soul I feel sublime
Gives my eyes a glassy shine

My consciousness could almost kiss the stars
Tear them to pieces and imbibe the shards
The ecstasy within me speeds my heartbeat
When it's over i'll crash hard

I'm losing touch with rationality
This mania taints my reality
Straddling the fence of psychosis
hallucinating dead babies and st. francis

I'm flying high
Floating in the sky
Queen of the clouds
I look down
Kiss the world goodbye
