Refrain from Living

I've been listening with deaf ears
to a song that has never been played
humming tunelessly along
and acting out the refrain

'And now, ecstasy, I'm cheating on your memory
head thrown back, i'm letting go
If the sun stays hidden I'll dance in the rain
and let it wash these silly dreams away'

Never mind how tone deaf I've become
the lyrics are loud enough
they scream through my head and scorch my skin
leaving brands in flesh where tattoos had been
