lyrics

I see four colours
on the backs of scientists
and a peacemaker's hand outstretched
towards the trigger
of a kill-shot in reverse
I don't need another universe
I'm yours
You know she never could have hid
from her own Janus head
she was trapped within the grid
but I can see the figure eight

And the question
that becomes exclaimed and marked
I don't need to tear my loves apart
to find the source
of what makes them lovable
I don't need another world
I'm yours
you know he always could predict
the murder that you did
you put a black hole in his head
but I can see the figure eight

Know I am at war
I need room to breathe within your perfect structure
there's blood in the gutters for sure
tell me you saw, what I just saw

Which was a peace sign
with its lines split up by Time
and the gunshot gave him his third eye
chasing the rainbow
and its colours each in turn
I don't need another earth
I'm yours
caged like the doves you kept
I am turquoise in my death
Spiral Dynamics
but I can see the figure eight

Know I am at war
I need room to breathe within your perfect structure
there's blood in the gutters for sure
tell me you saw, what I just saw

That you're a confident dresser
confident dresser
you always get your way
I never get my way
you separate too much
the strands get lonely
confident dresser, confident dresser

I am a poor boy
smiling through the bad
hiding behind a domino mask
reading comics
to make sense of my hurt
I don't need another father
I'm yours
I can't take back what I did
so I should die instead
give me an issue I haven't read
and I will find the figure eight

I'll find the figure eight
there's blood in the gutters for sure
tell me you saw
what I just saw
I saw the figure eight
