Lyrics

GRAFITTI

Verse1
I read the writing on the wall.
It left me feeling very small.
A 1000 people painting rhymes,
Outasight, they?re outa their minds.
Painted letters 10 feet tall.
S.O.S. I?ll heed the call.
Watch the shadows disappear
Open your eyes, read the fear.

Chorus1
Why do they cry to me?
Why do they lie to me?
Some from without; Some from within -
They?ll never know the shape I?m in.

Verse2
It?s not for wanting something new,
It?s just the changes I go through.
Take the pencil mark the wall -
You lookout I?m 10 feet tall.
It?s no silly game I?m playing.
It?s not self-indulging pride.
There?s no underlying purpose -
I just need a place to hide.

Chorus2
Why do they cry to me?
Why do they lie to me?
Some from without; Some from within -
They?ll never know the shape I?m in.

Instrumental Bridge

Bridge1
If graffiti gets you high.
Draw a ladder to the sky.
You can?t steal just what you need.
Be the giant not the seed.
You?re the flower not the weed ?

Chorus3
Why do they cry to me?
Why do they lie to me?
Some from without; Some from within -
They?ll never know the shape I?m in.
They?ll never know the shape I?m in!
