Self-portrait: The Invisible Man

Lyrics & Chords

Self-portrait: The Invisible Man

Self portraits show me
All the things that I should
Masterpieces of misunderstood

Flowing brushstrokes
Upon glass canvasses
Painting landscapes of a life to be lived

Distorted vision
Perspective’s all wrong
Lines and spaces where they never belong

Blood stained fingers
Draw on the page
Scenes of heartbreak, pictures of rage

An invisible man hangs
From an invisible rope
Naked and helpless
Clutching his throat
But there’s still air in his lungs
So he fights to break free
So that one day he’ll be real
And one day he’ll be seen

Self portraits show me
All the things that I don’t
Every sunrise, I apply a new coat

Sculpt myself to
Deny what I am
The gallery sees me as a well-chiseled man

I’m an abstract
Colors and shapes
There is no shading, there’s only love and there’s hate

The world’s Guernica
I’ve lost all my limbs
Flames and daggers impale my skin

An invisible man hangs
From an invisible rope
Naked and helpless
Clutching his throat
But there’s still air in his lungs
So he fights to break free
So that one day he’ll be real
And one day he’ll be seen

One day this still life
Will spring into action
The invisible man will
Decide his own fate
His choice is simple
The work much harder
To live in color
Or die in black and white

An invisible man hangs
From an invisible rope
Naked and helpless
Clutching his throat
But there’s still air in his lungs
So he fights to break free
So that one day he’ll be real
And one day he’ll be seen

An invisible man hangs
From an invisible rope
Naked and helpless
Clutching his throat
But there’s still air in his lungs
So he fights to break free
So that one day he’ll be real
And one day he’ll be seen
