Iridescent

V1

Grey skies
Burnt out by spectral lights
My spirit lingers here
In the colour
To speak to others
who want to seize their life

V2

Memories
Those false thoughts in my mind
Torture me with past
In the colour
Of the nebulous dark
That fuses with blood under flesh.

Chorus

But I will be alright
As I set alight this aphotic sky
And if I dream a dream (for you, for me)
Rainbows will follow us home tonight

V3

Lift me
Into the flood of Elysium wake
Eden’s gate opening gold
In the colour
Of a heavenly glow
That was dreamt in kaleidoscope skin.

Chorus

But I will be alright
As I set alight this aphotic sky
And if I dream a dream (for you, for me)
Rainbows will follow us home tonight

Chorus

But I will be alright
As I set alight this aphotic sky
And if I dream a dream (for you, for me)
Rainbows will follow us home tonight

Outro

Myriad of glitter and shot guns
Explosions spat in colourful conundrum
Crescendos of cacophonous rapture
A white sea of diamonds will shatter
Iridescent skies spill into my skyline
Tumbling ruins - my mind labyrinthine. 

The End
