This one kind of sounds like The Moody Blues and we're okay with that. The goal was to make a track where the vocals were the least interesting thing. This is why the bass and guitar have so may features. Lyrics are about Jared's admiration for visual artists. He's so jealous

lyrics

images woven of dreams fall
onto the page like so much water
swept and smeared by the brush
carving into the paper an existence

Can you capture my spirit
scribble it down onto the canvas
can you see into my head
own my visage with a pen tip

He etches sun-swept fantasies in graphite
nimble fingers scribing heaven
to gleam the brilliance of his mastery
Oh how we long to touch

Can you capture my spirit
scribble it down onto the canvas
can you see into my head
own my visage with a pen tip

cannot compare to his ability
never match his grace
poets and prophets fall to naught
but never see his face

Can you capture my spirit
scribble it down onto the canvas
can you see into my head
own my visage with a pen tip
