Got caught kicking the canvas down
I had plans but they never seemed to work out
Wide-eyed and on the lookout
Got caught tearing the whole thing down
I was halfway done
But then you know this painted scene
Could never leave me
Oh please believe me

Caught killing a camera 
Now it seems calming and clear to hire
A cast of kittens, the cats we've been kissing
For the cameras we're lowering here
Got caught tearing the whole thing down
I was halway done
But then we sang it for memphis
The new slang in frame and canvas
Just for the cameras

When we are awake we sing "never... ever"
This is where you must make up your mind
Should beauty be design this time?
This time you decide cause we go with whatever
We take our time

Got a cough
My throat kills from singing
My ears are ringing
The stage is slowly sinking
And we're all thinking the same thing
Let's not settle for satisfaction
We are women and men of action
Let's stop clapping let's start doing
A dream for the teens and in-betweens
And twenties yet unseen
