PICTURE

I was born into this world

Like an empty sheet of paper

And you tried to paint the perfect picture

Of a perfect little life

In a place where there's no sorrow and pain

Where life's just fun and games

There were birds up in the sky

There were flowers in the window 

And the stars would light up the night

And you painted it so well

You used all the rainbows colours

Yet I was black and white

And all I know

All I know is we all have problems

And we all feel pain

And all I know

All I know my demons are hiding

Cause they're all in my brain

But I'm breaking out

Breaking free

I'm stepping out of the shadow

So I can see

This lovely world

I'm living in

And I'll let go of the past

So I can live the life you painted for me

I wear this pretty mask

Of a smiling happy boy

Just to hide the world beneath it

It's a world that has no sun

And the stars just keep on dying

And no dirt for flowers to grow

And all I know

All I know this world isn't real

It's created by me

And all I know

All I know my demons are chained up

And I have the key

So I'm breaking out

Breaking free

I'm stepping out of the shadow

So I can see

This lovely world

I'm living in

And I'll let go of the past

So I can live the life you painted for me

Mom and dad

I know you've been worried

But everything will be alright

Cause I'm breaking out

With a smile on my face

Out of that awful place

I'm breaking out

Breaking free

I'm stepping out of the shadow

So I can see

This beautiful world

I'm living in

And I'll let go of the past

So I can live the life you Painted for me
