You painted all your dreams in pink and neon
and drifted far from woods to New Year’s hailing
we took you home to rest, but you went sailing
we tried our best to treat your itch and your ailing
that turned you eyes to silver, crazy wailing;
we opened up our hearts to all your failings.
but your gilded dreams just sent you scaling,
walls and towers and we couldn’t stop you falling.
You painted all your dreams before it all went black
Inspired by the song and video at toads.. for Marian.
