If you were a painting on the wall of the Louvre, how would you feel?

lyrics

People stare at me framed, back against the wall
I can’t change my look but I am looking at them all
and man their eyes are small

And I turn to face myself and I can hear her say

We denounce godspeed, to whom may plea please tell me what do you see
Do you feel the ache, must this retake whatever you thought it turns opaque
Admire me, conspire greed when will they expire me
Too hard to make, too safe to take my artist said suicide was a big mistake

Do not clean up the edges, they are already dry
If you tear the canvas, the critics, they will cry
I will stay in maybe one place, taking up so much space

And I turn to face myself and I can hear him say

We denounce godspeed, to whom may plea please tell me what do you see
Do you feel the ache, must this retake whatever you thought it turns opaque
Admire me, conspire greed when will they expire me
Too hard to make, too safe to take my artist said suicide was a big mistake

Tell me your thoughts on god and draw me a picture of what you saw
It doesn’t matter what you do, someone will always say that you’re wrong
we have been waiting much too long
and
Honesty without regret, probably my best bet
The light reflects off me into your head
Make up what you will of the colors and shapes instead

We denounce godspeed, to whom may plea please tell me what do you see
Do you feel the ache, must this retake whatever you thought it turns opaque
Admire me, conspire greed when will they expire me
Too hard to make, too safe to take my artist said suicide was a big mistake

Say solo with the door closed so you can’t know that I was there
I’m modern romantic, nouveau, deco, classism, why not neo?
