The headlines read well known socialite
Fell to her death from thirteen floors
For one so young for one so beautiful
The signs were easy to ignore

This was no ordinary suicide
She breathed success from every pore
But when the pain became unbearable
She hit the brakes to stop it all

Those eyes diffract the rainbow
White light is all she sees
Veiled by her life's illusion
With pieces of a broken dream

Sometimes the pressure gets too much to bear
And through it seemed she had it all
The colours of the life she used to share
Were just the shadows of before

Those eyes diffract the rainbow
White light is all she sees
Veiled by her life's illusion
With pieces of a broken dream

Truth lies beyond the rainbow
Blue skies are fantasy
Inside the sad delusion
She balanced in reality, closer to insanity

The truth behind the headline should have read
The crowd below could hear her call
But had no patience for the words she said
They only came to watch her fall

Those eyes diffract the rainbow
White light is all she sees
Veiled by her life's illusion
With pieces of a broken dream

Truth lies beyond the rainbow
Blue skies are fantasy
Inside the sad delusion
She balanced in reality, closer to insanity
