"Redefine"

Imagine your brain
 as a canister filled with ink
 Yeah, now think of your body
 as the pen where the ink resides
 Fuse the two; KAPOW!
 What are you now?
 You're the human magic marker,
 won't you please surprise my eyes?
 It's in your nature
 You can paint whatever picture you like
 no matter what Ted Koppel says on channel 4 tonight
 So modify this third rock from the sun 
 by painting myriads of pictures 
 with the colors of one 
 
 I'm sick of painting in black and white 
 My pen is dry, now I'm uptight 
 So sick of limiting myself 
 to fit your definition 
 
 Picture the scene
 where whatever you thought
 would in the blink of an eye
 manifest and become illustrated
 You'd be sure, man, that every line drawn
 reflected a life that you loved
 not an existence that you hated
 So must we demonstrate that
 we can't get it straight?
 We've painted a picture,
 now we're drowning in paint
 Let's figure out what the fuck it's about
 before the picture we painted
 chews us up and spits us out
 
 I'm sick of painting in black and white
 my pen is dry, now I'm uptight
 So sick of limiting myself
 to fit your definition
 
 Redefine
 
 I'm sick of painting in black and white
 my pen is dry, now I'm uptight
 So sick of limiting myself
 to fit your definition
 
 Must we demonstrate
 that we can't get it straight?
 We've painted a picture,
 now we're drowning in the paint
 Let's figure out what the fuck it's about
 before the picture we painted
 chews us up and spits us out
