Inspiration crushed...

Lyrics

Bought by the pound
And paid by the hour
Owned by the men
In an ivory tower

We hoped to find
The extraordinary
But all we see
Are mirrors in the dark

Just when the colors
Had started to grow
Deceived by the wine
Hypnotized by the show
All that we once knew
Has faded away
Here come the people in gray

Hidden from view
By the smoke on the screen
Ruling the world
With decisions unseen

In perfect rows
Of cubicles forever
Reviewing scenes
From cameras above

Just when the roses
Had started to bloom
Touched by the sun
In a half lighted room
And we watch it all
With nothing to say
Here come the people in gray
Again

Days in the dark
Nights in the sun
Counting the days
Till our time here is done

Just when the colors
Had started to grow
Deceived by the wine
Hypnotized by the show
All that we once knew
Has faded away
Here come the people in gray
