scorpio rising

I'm old enough to know

That my stars just won't let go

At this day and age I can see

That the world was meant for me


Some people laugh at what you're doing

They hold you in the sand

I'm having a hard time

Adjusting to these changes


I can see that you lips are moving

But I can't hear what you're saying


Is it yes, or is it no?

It is stop, or is it go?

Is it suck, or is it throw?

Oh is it me or am I just to slow?


I'm young enough to think

That the world looks good in pink

But as far as I can see

That ain't enough for me


Some people hear what you're doing

They pull you by the strings

I'm having trouble

Taking change day by day


When I see you I see red and green

You're like the biggest tree I've ever seen

But it cuts you down

Oh down to size

The apple of my eye

Is rotting underground


I see the future burning in their eyes

But I don't care what it's saying


Is it high or is it low?

Is it hide or is it show?

Is it shrink or is it grow?

Is it the twister ahe he he he hey!


I wrote this song while I was eating beans

Now don't  you try and ask me what that means

It's just like asking me to tell you my dreams

I would have told you long ago but now it seems

You're far away

Here come the loony bin

Come to take me away

You put a scar in my twisted face

In the yearbook I look out of place

I see my letter burning in you hand

It took me 25 years just to understand

Blue is the color of my skin

Blue is the color of my skin

Blue is the color of my...woh!
