Colossus of Maroussi

I am the colossus of Maroussi and nothing more 

Each day passes 

Each week passes 

Each month goes sliding through my fingers 

And is lost down the drain 

The drain 

Linear time passes 

As each moment passes 

Passing through my fingers and in lost all the same 

One day I woke to find you standing 

Looking back at me 

Flowing pigtails 

Hazel eyes 

Cherubic smile 

Looking at me 

Looking through me 

I fear you are trying to look right through me 

I can feel your evil stairs 

Quit staring at me 

I am the Colossus of Maroussi and nothing more 

I am not in the passing lane 

All you bastards still pass me by 

Passing by me 

Passing by me as easily as the turning of an 

Autumn leaf 

So many years are passing by 

Sliding through my fingers and are lost down the drain 

All the pain 

All the pain 

All the pain I am all a lone 

I never said you could leave me 

You little bitch I‘ll tell you when and were to go 

I am still the Colossus of Maroussi, all that and more 

I say you have betrayed me 

So I will beat you to the floor 

I am yelling 

Yelling very loudly 

Just to let you know 

I am the Colossus of Maroussi and you are my 

Little whore 

Each day passes 

Sliding through my fingers and is lost down the drain 

Lost down the drain 

The tears 

And years 

And beers 

And all my fucking fears are washing down the drain 

The drain 

Drip 

Drip 

Drop 

Flowing down the drain 

I am the Colossus of Maroussi and nothing more 

Every day passes 

Passing 

Sliding 

Dripping 

Dropping 

Down the drain 

As the colossus of Maroussi 

I am sliding down the drain 

Flipping 

Falling to the floor 

I am the Colossus of Maroussi and absolutely 

Nothing more
