Song Lyrics

You can close your eyes

And see the picture perfect life

Inside of your mind

Dreaming only of the days ahead

Wanted and wished for more than now

Or the days behind

You waste your time

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broken

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broken

You can never think

You can`t even stop yourself

Before the words have been spoken

And you`ve already said

You would give everything

And something for nothing

Everybody thinks you`re joking

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broken

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broken

You want to be the one

Made over be your own

Before and after

And a supermarket

Beauty in a bottle queen

Who`ll one day grace a check-out counter

Magazine front cover

Though the fine print reads

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broken

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broken

Lets it be broken

Lets it be broken

Broken

Lets it be broken

Lets it be broken

Broken

Broken

Your life is never what you wanted

Not even halfway normal

Just tarnished and soiled

When in your reach

A framed and frozen moment

So far from perfection

Not truth or transcendence

Will set you free

Still you don`t believe

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broken

The picture makes a promise

The flesh lets it be broke
