lyrics

Her lips shame the reddest rose in the rarest garden in a valley of sabotaged beauty.
And a whitewashed idiot is pushed through a wave of coloured flesh filled with crystal love and lavender ribbons of sanity that washes away all the hate and ignorance from days gone by.

I'm so ugly and dumb. All I have is my poetry.

Some say the sun rises at noon thirty and the dead come early to feast on lives they wish they had when they were alive but no one regrets what they did until the white light embraces their aging souls.
Someone once told me to 'Follow your heart!' but I told them, 'No.' in case my heart stopped before I could reach Emerald City to ask the wizard for beauty and brains cuz all I have is my poetry.

Summertime is coming after all these years of smoke and grime lifted from our spirits. It's poetic; it's pathetic - no, it's not at all.
Hope is here just like me. I am me, I am not what they tell me to be cuz I am I. I'm beautiful like me. I like me. Yes I do.

And it might take some time to like me for who I am.
I might break but I'll fix myself, I promise.
But will you forgive me if I am a mess?

about

Sean Kua Toronto, Ontario

I like to listen to music and make music, hey, what a coinkydink!

I'm inspired by many artists both living and dead, and by non-artists also living and dead. I like to write songs about people I encounter, or things that I like, sometimes things that I hate, or how I feel. I really hope you enjoy what you hear and you help feed me! ... more
