Haken – Canary Yellow


Looking through your window to an empty room
Hours passing by, the hands don’t move
A plastic life built just for you
Fears of wasted years fall into view

This mannequin aims to please
Traded ambitions for a nuclear family
Never fleeing from the nest
Eat, sleep, repeat to begin
To begin again

Break your silence
With these eyes
Blindly you follow
This perfect lie

Canary yellow luminates the grid
And the heat causes our skin to drip
The endgame is all the same for you and me
An equinox the eyes
The eyes will never meet

You try to save the world
When it’s you that needs help
Strive to win their hearts
When it’s mine that needs love

You renounce the throne
Born to die alone
You can mend your broken crown
Too proud to fix yourself

Tryin’ to save the world
When it’s you that needs help
Strive to win their hearts
When it’s mine that needs love
With a call to arms
‘Till death do us part

Break your silence
With these eyes
Blindly you follow
This perfect lie

You try to save the world
When it’s you that needs help
Strive to win their hearts
When it’s mine that needs love

You renounce the throne
Born to die alone
You can mend your broken crown
Too proud to fix yourself

Tryin’ to save the world
When it’s you that needs help
Strive to win their hearts
When it’s mine that needs love
With a call to arms
‘Till death do us part
