anesthesia please

wma file is located here

thirty miles inside of me
still no sign of life
floating through a whisper
i could use a word from you
painted proud
i have walked that way
fools usually do

my head is in a hurricane i’m losing ground
anesthesia please
we all joined this circus in me they’ve lost a clown
anesthesia please

i am hoping one day love
will make it past my skin
it wandered in here once before
will it ever come again
if dreams were rain
i’d be drowning in my sleep
if i only could

a brunette sky
was the storm that brought me down
i’ve never gotten over her
i guess i'll have to go around
one more time
i close my eyes
and fade  away

rembrandt never knew this color absolutely blue
anesthesia please
painted i have walked that way  fools usually do
anesthesia

shake the hand that’s shaking
taste the black it fades to gray
then fades away

my head is in a hurricane and losing ground
anesthesia please
we all joined the circus
in me they’ve lost a clown
anesthesia please
rembrandt never knew this color absolutely blue
anesthesia please
painted i have walked that way fools usually do
anesthesia please
please
