lyrics

Two parts to every play
The sun to set, the sun to rise
A canvas soaked in blood
A clear glass coat to beautify

For every penny saved,
A gift of mine I gave
Put your eyes to mine
Let the creature shine

When the sun begins to rise
The ocean reflects on one
No where to run and hide
Burned up by the sun

For every penny saved
A gift of mine I gave
Put your eyes to mine
Let the creature shine

Moving in and out
Flow without a drought
The puzzle begins to form, filling the gaps of time
The loopholes of the mind

For every penny saved
A kiss of mine I gave
Put your eyes to mine
Let the creature shine

The book begins to write
Poured with paint and pressed and scraped
And on the other side, a manuscript sings its fate
The message must relate

For every penny saved
A kiss of mine I gave
Turn your eyes to mine
Let the creature shine
Let the creature shine
Let the creature shine
