lyrics

Seems time has snared me
All these rope burns on my soul
Despair can't be stifled deep
In time the scars begin to show

And though good memories fused in spirit
Walk with me each day
The toll for passion is black misery
And hear me, at some point you'll have to pay

So I
Cellophane
Cellophane this wasted life
Cellophane my fate

Seems life has doped me
All these track marks on my soul
I keep on running from time but eventually
Every doorway leads to old
There’s a spark of life that can devour
Even in death
The muse departed leaves a void
That swallows whole all that is left

So I
Cellophane Cellophane this twisted life
Cellophane my fate
Cellophane my head

In youth I thought I’d grasped the purpose
Wrestled it for truth and meaning
On the ground I look for the wisdom
On which with age I was to be leaning

There’s a shadow I can’t silence
Like a bell its echoes ring out
Try to stand and shake off all this dust
Find your voice and find that you can sing out
