Look what I've done 
This picture I've painted 
It looks like my heart 
Or what still remains 

Convinced of the weight 
Your interpretations 
Are not what I see 
I wish they could be 

I remember it much redder 
I remember it much brighter 

[Chorus]
Can you stay for a while 
Try to imagine this 
Could you be for a while 
I can't remember it 
Could you fall for a while 
I can't escape from this 

I'll try to explain 
The way that the frame 
Doesn't quite fit the image 
Or surround the edge 

It stands on display 
What do you see? 
Behold all the new grey 
What's become of the old me 

I remember it much redder 
I remember it much brighter 

[Chorus] 

Calling, crying, ashamed of what I am not 
Really failing, falling into this cage and I can't escape 
I can't escape 

Look what I've done 
This picture I've painted 
Doesn't quite fit 
Or surround the edge 
I remember it much redder 

[Chorus] 

I can't escape, I can't escape, I can't escape
