    Lyrics

    You can close your eyes
    And see a picture perfect life
    Inside of your mind
    Dreaming only of the days ahead
    wanted and wished for more than now
    Or the days behind
    You waste your time

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken

    You can never think
    You can't even stop yourself
    Before the words have been spoken
    And you've already said
    You would give everything
    And something for nothing
    Everybody thinks you're joking

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken

    You want to be the one
    Made over be your own
    Before and after
    And the supermarket
    Beauty in a bottle queen
    Who'll one day grace a
    check-out counter
    Magazine front cover
    Though the fine print reads

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken

    Lets it be broken, broken
    Lets it be broken, broken
    Broken
    Lets it be broken, broken
    Lets it be broken, broken
    Broken
    Broken

    When your life is never what you wanted
    Not even halfway normal
    Just tarnished and soiled
    When in your reach
    A framed and frozen moment
    So far from perfection
    No truth or transcendence
    Will set you free
    Still you don't believe

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
