Blithely you skip along your enchanted pathway that you’ve strewn with flowers
your world is so rose tinted and looks so clear cut
that you can already imagine the sparkling future with a rock on your hand.
And see what a wonderful time you’re going to make if only you could shut out the showers.
Those dark clouds that will hang over your head
filled with the raindrops your eyes are going to shed
tell yourself with each reality you make there’s something better than this
But never realised have you? They’re ten a penny wishes
like a dandelion that scatters to the wind in the breeze
You’ll canter on like a skittish Arabian horse, nothing to hold your head in place
So you’ll wander to the next and next with syrupy ease
Your so adept within your lie, you even fooled yourself
While you robbed a warm heart of all it could possibly give
with a vampiric ease left it beating slowly on the trodden earth
having touched the body and turned it to stone just like Medusa’s curse
You keep skipping happily along your merry route
For your last victim is stronger than you ever could see
ahead I am watching your rainbow far closer than you had done
I am struck by the fact you overlooked (on purpose?)
that rainbow tinkles prettily I grant you that
But it would, being made from coloured broken glass .
