Naked from the neck up (Lyrics)

How can I sleep, now the wind blows

How do I rest, knowing what I know

Nonchalance takes a heavy toll,

.

Philandering and making the eyes

Disco ball spinning me around

Struggling with the times

.

They say the world won’t stay this way

And I can never be the same –

.

Well, look at me now:

Naked from the neck up

Empty from the soul down

Moving portrait

Of painful denial

.

Words translate heavily

Spelling out what is meant to be

Leaving me a chill inside,

.

Frozen in a moment of time

Burden lacking a parallel

Electronic ghost caught on the lines,

.

They say the world won’t stay this way

And I can never be the same –

.

Well, look at me now:

Naked from the neck up

Empty from the soul down

Moving portrait

Of painful denial

.

When the work is not viewed and shared, nobody gives a damn the artist loses hope, and the birth of new art ceases to be imagined
