about

purples... Tis a slightly scary rock composition about having high anxiety when dealing with the outside world but also having a tough girl that protects you but also hurts you too sometimes. "she sticks with me until the bitter end. She sticks with me even though I'm not a man's man."

lyrics

outside in the morning
a buzz in my mind
I creep by the doorway
but there's nowhere to hide
the flowers are blooming
there's dew in the air
my brain questions everything around me
but there's nothing to save me from the dangers in the air
what's a job
who are friends what's the cure when it begins
I've got a small sister meaner than sin
and she sticks with me until the bitter end
I've got her back again
and then
she creeps with one of my friends
hey ole' man why you staring at me ?
can't you see i am afraid?
the subway comes
they put me in the tracks
and no-one will recognize my name
there's time when you want it
there's times when you don't
my brain questions everything around me
but there's nothing to save me from the dangers in the air
whats a job
who are friends
whats the cure when it begins
I've got a small sister meaner than sin
an she sticks with me until the bitter end
i've got her back again
it's been ten years to the day
when i asked you to take an art school style picture of me with the cat
something deep down inside of you burst asunder
without hesitation you raised your wine glass high in the air
and brought crashing down upon my head
instantly crushing my artistic desire and making me bleed a lot
when you laughed at my tears it hit me
it was you
you were the artist all along
and I was your work of art !
