Cameleon Boy
by Blue October



I changed my color for you.
I shed my coat with caution.
I lack the beauty you display.
See here they are the bruises
and some were self inflicted
and some showed up along the way.
So I nod my head,
I’m ready for the world to see
The secret I’ve kept here inside
the man you thought id be
Slip into coma calm.
The coma where I calm myself down.
Here comes excuses why I let you down.

Stand by for another breakdown
Sound off the alarm
Is this chameleon boy I swore I wouldn’t become
Chameleon boy
Chameleon boy

So now we’ve come upon
the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
It’s telling you that I’m a mess.
What sort of mess I mean?
A self destructive gasoline,
The kind that strips you of your best.
And while I play instead,
the way that most would end up dead.
You sleep alone at home
and wish that I was in our bed.
With this I’m telling you
my color changes back to blue.
How do ask you this?
Will you help me through?

Stand by for another breakdown
Sound off the alarm
Is this chameleon boy I swore I wouldn’t become
Chameleon boy
Chameleon boy

I try to think of all
The people I looked up to.
While growing up,
Who would I be?
Now the twisted part.
Where did all my idols end up?
They’ve all passed away
