Tried and Twisted - A Love of Toxic Color


Tried twisted lover, are you dying for a kiss? 
Harmony is crawling 
Looking for slivers of forever bliss 
I agree, it’s hard, it’s not just you, go on 
We have to move on 
Let it out don’t cringe at the colors 
It’s the same on the other side of the canvas 
Tried and twisted colors, which ones do you want me to mix? 
Waiting on the moment the palm trees will sing 
They want to bend and brush the foam that’s 
Sucking, blowing, inhaling and listening for the 
Toxicity of your colors as they run 
Tired and restless lover, your love is sweetening the taste of life 
You left the sugar on my tongue 
You wanted to touch it, but life wore on 


Every morning they rose and left the colors in their wake 
Racing off to the monochrome of some tried and twisted fate 
They rolled towards the colors, towards forever and all of their past lovers 
Hot heels and corduroy, broken bounds and hair ties found 

Blink, blink, she kicked the door in 

Now she’s crying in the sand mixing her toxic colors with her hand 
Star-ridden and her clothes teach her lessons 
Scent of lucky and hardly a trend to begin 
Anew, another tried twisted toxic lover
