Cosmic Symphony (Flying Colors)

I. Still Life Of The World The moon is stained with midnight tears of fortune Tainted pastures, scarecrows point to no one My favorite cigarette plays its funeral song A still life of the world Shrinking violet wounded by her mother Old men sleep while porcelain screams take over And the wolf disguises her undying lover A still life of the world A still life of the world II. Searching For The Air I took in the sunrise and tried to save it I looked through my own eyes and I thought I've made it I thought I could reach the sky but I'm stuck here on the ground I wanted to drink wine from the captain's table I saw in my mind's eye but my hands weren't able Searchin' for the air but it all keeps comin' down, down, comin' down I'm searchin' for the air but I'm stuck here on the ground, on the ground, on the ground now Searchin' for the air but I'm stuck here on the ground now Searchin' for the air Searchin' for the air Searchin' for the air III. Pound For Pound I'm neither more, I'm neither less And I'm not trying to take some test And I'm not trying to prove myself And I'm not trying to run away... away from you In all these years I've seen the changes take place Like the ice melting away Like the sun bringing the morning And I know... it was all for you And when I get to walk the streets Without this burden on my feet I know I've been called home These shoes won't be my own to fill When I see the past beneath My heavy heart is finally free I'm searchin' for the air Searchin' for the air But I have found It's pound for pound Underneath this cosmic symphony Underneath this pain, this happiness And underneath the river's stream... a will to live I've given love, I've given hate I've given peace and I've made a war And I've been scarred by words and swords But here I am, the will to live And when I get to walk these streets Without a burden on these feet I'll know I've been called home This place will be my own again When I feel the past beneath My heavy heart is finally free I'm searchin' for the air Searchin' for the air But I have found It's pound for pound
