lyrics

She sits quietly
behind the window, watching passers-by
on her side of the glass all colour's drained from life

Nights and days are all the same
awfully equal and awake
life lingers on until the moment she will break

All she held onto fell away
'till there remained nothing left to say
no more comfort beside the lies we tell to soothe her days

Gold has turned to rust
and every line of silver has a cloud
a monsoon of misery is pouring out

There is no music in the monotone
no dance left in her brittle bones
no roses in her favorite cologne
all is monochrome

What she still remembers is a curse
- the treehouse, the smell of a freshly mowed lawn
sentimental feelings are the worst
- playing with her sister all day long
how she wishes that she would forget
- that the treehouse and her sister are gone
but dementia hasn't kicked in yet
- her body is weak but her mind is still strong

There is no music in the monotone
no dance left in her brittle bones
no roses in her favorite cologne
all is monochrome
