The Colour White

This is the colour white
The trail it leaves behind
Settles what is not to say
As they go out for fun
He joins his one man band
Sad enough, sad enough to break
Ah, the world has let me down
I side with myself
Want to make it up, to get things right
I hide again, oh
Send someone to derive all my worries
Just send someone
This is the colour white
The way he feels inside
Nothingness eating up a soul
If you have laser eyes
And see what's out of sight
Go to him
Let him feel your glow
Ah, the world has let me down
I side with myself
Want to make it up, to get things right
I hide again, oh
Send someone to derive all my worries
Just send someone
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain
Ah, the world has let me down
I side with myself
Want to make it up, to get things right
I stand again, oh
Send someone to derive all my worries
Just send someone
