lyrics

Everything in the picture is so white, so white.
Everything that we're looking at is bright. Don't even have to try.
Everything that I'm looking at is wrong. Listen to their song.
Am I listening?
Everything that I'm running from, it runs from too. It's so white. And it's so right.

Everything in the picture is so black, so blue.
Every piece of paper is so white. Good night.
Every tick on the clock is so damn blue. I can't help either of you.
And now you are running on a rolling ball. It's not right.

Everything in the picture is so blue, so blue.
Everyone I run from is so blue. It's so sad. You're so sad.
Why are you so sad? You are running from your peers.
Running from your peers, you run so far.
Why are you so sad when you are running from your peers?
Running from your peers leaves you so far.

And I'm runnin', runnin' after the ones jumped over the fence to save my life, but it was not enough.
The knife wound that gushes aquamarine - Oh, it has such an awful sheen.
But children, tomorrow will be another day. We'll be another way.

Everyone that we're running from is so blue, and it hurts my feelings sometimes.

Everything in the picture is so white, so white.
Everything that we're looking at is bright. Don't even have to try.
Everything that I'm looking at is wrong. Listen to their song.
Am I listening?
Everything that I'm running from, it runs from too. It's so white. And it's so right.

Every tick on the clock is so damn blue. I can't help either of you.
And now you are running on a rolling ball. It's not right.
Everyone in the picture is so blue. It's sad but true.

I looked the other day inside a magazine.
The people looking back were angry and obscene.
Their quiet testimonies lack value, but they do impart poor qualities in me.

Everything that is separate is so black and blue.
All of the pieces of puzzles can be forced to fit.
All of the tooth-bleach users and the salesmen too.
Everything will stay bad, though, and that is it.
