THE BOOK THAT DREW ITSELF

I see the book that draws itself and colours fill the pages.
Turning as I look through the sum of all the ages.
Watched it all unfold with the trigger of my wondering mind.
It drew of a time when the cities were made of gold.
And another of its kind when the devil had its strongest hold.

Chorus
Then it painted, all the lights out slowly.
Tainted, all the windows ghostly.
It faded, all the sights unholy.
It all just disappeared.

The Sorcerer he said, never go back to the start of this book,
Coz the things once there you will not find.
Let the pages go to the moment of your wondering mind
It drew of a place where the forests ruled the world at last.
And another of its kind filled with concrete and broken glass.

Chorus
Then it painted, all the lights out slowly.
Tainted, all the windows ghostly.
It faded, all the sights unholy.
It all just disappeared.

Instrumental break

I wish I could just hold this and put it in a bottle.
And use it for a rainy day when things are getting hostile.
And let the pages flow to the wanderings of my mind.
There's a clone of me making stone castles on the moon.
What a place to be, do I really have to leave so soon?

Chorus
Then it painted, all the lights out slowly.
Tainted, all the windows ghostly.
It faded, all the sights unholy.
It all just disappeared.
