don't ask me how my subconscious dragged this up, 'cause I don't know....but here it is...

CANDY COLOURED SHELL

I'm doing my time in my candy coloured shell
Brought it on myself, which I know so very well
And it doesn't make no never mind, what's goin' on outside
Because the truth is only here, within my mind

In my candy coloured shell, here I curl just like a snail
All the colours of the rainbow shining in my mucus trail
I wanted all the pleasures, wanted others for to pay
And that's why I only have these many shades of gray


I thought I had a million bucks, but I only got a pound
The knock of oppurtunity made but a hollow sound
And the sunshine through the crystal makes an insubstantial sign
Because the truth is only here within my mind

In my candy coloured shell, here I curl just like a snail
All the colours of the rainbow shining in my mucus trail
I wanted all the pleasures, wanted others for to pay
And that's why I only have these many shades of gray


I thought I had found Heaven, in my candy coated shell
But if this is truly Heaven why is Virgil then my guide?
I cannot pass beyond these walls I know so very well
And the truth is only here within my mind

In my candy coloured shell, here I curl just like a snail
All the colours of the rainbow shining in my mucus trail
I wanted all the pleasures, wanted others for to pay
And that's why I only have these many shades of gray
