Seven ticks to eight o'clock
He rumbles down the stair's
Mother's cooking in her kitchen
Father's in his chair
The headline on the front page reads
The sun's coming out today
Shining down on perfect streets
It's anywhere usa.

With eyes wide open the sky is always a thousand shades of blue, partly broken lost and lonley, we all just shades of you.

Can't you hear the school bell singing hurry don't be late, wandering the crowded hallways searching for his place, the writing on the chalkboard reads who will be king this year, and even though he raised his hand no one knows he's there.

With arms wide open his life's becoming a thousand shades of blue, partly broken lost and lonley, we all just shades of you.

There's no escapeing where he's going a thousand shades of blue partly hopeless, don't you notice, we're all just shades of you.

He let the water run to deep, then he just slowing slipped on in and when he finds the nerve to breathe, all they'll say is no one saw it coming.

Hear the sirens, the cops arriving, a thousand shades of blue, but it's hopeless no one noticed, were all just shades of you.

With eyes wide open, they found him floating, a thousand shades of blue, there's no escaping where he's going we all just shades of you.
