lyrics

PAINT BY NUMBERS

You’ve got smoke in your eyes/and holes in your shoes
Your home unknown/your soul is not your own/you’ve got nothing to lose
‘Cause you broke your own imagination/it doesn’t paint in colour in your head
You threw it down and stamped the ground/when left for dear the colours came out black and white and red

Human behaviour is left behind/you carry your headstone through the night
You’re tied to the grind/you live so you can die

So paint by numbers/for the rest of your days
And never breach the surface/never let the danger in
You feel no joy in loneliness/you feel no pain/you only feel the same thing
Believe no fate and feel no hate just concentrate on floating in the boat you’re sinking in

Human behaviour is left behind/you carry your headstone through the night
You’re tied to the grind/you live so you can die

You take no comfort in a quiet room
Your weakness is incredible/it’s terrible and cruel
It’s not so hard for you to take/another fake for fate to hate
You have no pride to feel the ache
You have no heart for me to break

Human behaviour is left behind/you carry your headstone through the night
You’re tied to the grind/you live so you can die

So paint by numbers
