For the record, this is not some faux "emo/goth" wannabe song. It's more of a satire and even meant to be performed in an upbeat tone.
----------------------------------------------

Mommy, I've always wondered about these colors
The red on your flesh and the black on the blue
Did I paint those when I struck at you
Is that why you hold on so tight to the covers

Daddy, I've always wondered about this sensation
The pain in my head and the numb in my wrists
Did you make these with magic when you cast those four letter words
Or when you contacted me with those powerful fists

A canvas, A canvas of glamorous colors
The browns and blacks and whites
Oh how they hate eachother
It's funny to watch and funner to join
Being so wrong never felt more right

I watched from the window in my booster seat
As a medlee of bullets danced across the streets
Oh how I loved the colors as they floated so free
One day I want to make art out of me

A canvas, A canvas of wonderful things
The intricate lines of chalk on the pavement
I've painted my own and even though it stings
It looks so beautiful, I think I can take it

This canvas won't make it to the end
I've gone too far
too far with scars
I think I've gone too far this time

Mommy, Daddy, what is this blackness
It's fading from the corners of my eyes
I wish that I could just reach out and grab it
And hold it so close as I die
Nice banana, Andy Warhol.

Well, the point of view IS supposed to be from a child's perspective.

love it great expression through the words, "Did I paint those when I struck at you" Love this line my favourite, love how you use a term of colours and paint for brutality and hatred.
Makes it sound so amazing!

"One day I want to make art out of me" such beauty, beats saying man I wanna commit suicide, I love the thought thats gone into this song and definately sounds best with a upbeat attitude, as if he feels really strong and happy about wanting to die and becoming a chalk man on the floor, awesome dude I love it, quite possibly my favourite song on this forum, I shall check out your other piece later, Keep up the good work

creepy i will definatly agree with. but not in a bad way at all. reading it.... i could feel the time you put into this. feels like each and EVERY line was really thought out. i liked
"The red on your flesh and the black on the blue
Did I paint those when I struck at you"
really sshowed from the begining your main idea, bringing art into real life situations. least thats how it felt to me
very impressed with your depth. tired of short lined songs.
