Demon Painter – Arcturus

shady characters of faded cast
acting out their last role
beautiful lonely stars

these are my people
these fallen stars
you may think you see us
you never had a part

flickering performance
on a burning stage
in naked daylight
for you to hate

directing the audience
i paint in tones of gray
in shades of black
in cold dismay

i paint my deamons
as scars of blood
in a barren landscape
where all is lost
