Verse 1:

I’m a dragon in a playpen
That’s why I never fit in
Guess it’s not a problem
At least I fear no one…
I’m thinking of a painter
A famous entertainer
Said he’d paint your savior
He’s off in heavy metal slumber…


Who knew the blues could be dangerous?
Our dreams are naked every night
You got the right to get vandalized
For forty days and forty nights…


Grow some wings in the bone machine
Cut yourself, that’s a way to get clean
Take the plunge, only the dumb will stay
It’s all just hell on a holiday…
I’m thinking of a painter
Who said he’d entertain us
He had so much promise
All his mistakes were just so priceless…
