Lyrics

Mona, you have done it now, you've gone and shown exactly how
You never knew the process just to keep your brainwaves straight

Our life was not extravagant, but hey we always paid the rent
And went to church on Sunday when we didn't sleep to late

But now you need a little color and your paint is fading under
All the lights that shine around you every day

Put your pennies in a tray Save them for a rainy day And it's off you go and on your way Goodbye to Mona Lisa
Every time I try to speak, your face grows tired your hands get weak And then you look at me like I'm a thousand miles away Your eyes are always fixed on me, but somehow you just never see The man I'm trying hard to be, the freak that I portray But now you've got four walls surrounding and the frame is really sounding Like a prison where the guards have gone astray
Chorus
Though I try to disavow, if DaVinici could just see you now He wouldn't know the woman who is standing by my door Take your pennies from the tray cuz here it is, your rainy day And now it's just this painting who is staring back at me And it's not as if you've asked it, but I've finally unmasked it And there's nothing underneath your surface but an empty canvas
Chorus
