lyrics

A deep space shade of maroon
And a darker night sky blue
Here’s a big bright yellow one
Tall as a house big as the sun
The colour and the camouflage
In the early morning gallery glare
Hurts my eyes tourists arrive
I need to be somewhere

Rothko Rothko Rothko Rothko

Tour parties checking their headsets
Security guard falls asleep
If you stare at these things for long enough
You can expect to weep
The guide is working overtime
A tour party shuffles by
A young girl takes a photograph
And her boyfriend starts to cry

Rothko Rothko Rothko Rothko

And the walls of the art gallery sing
What have you done to me?
What is this thing?
Give me a clue should I be sad
Should I be scared, should I be glad

Every canvass has a number but not a name
You have to let the colour permeate
The inner workings of the brain
I’ve got a headache coming on
Yeah that’s the idea son
No matter how you shuffle the song
Everything you assumed to be right is wrong

Rothko Rothko Rothko Rothko

And the walls of the gallery sing
What have you done to me?
What is this thing?
Give me clue should I be sad
Should I be scared, should I be glad oh

Should I, I don’t know…

Security guard comes back from his break
Been taking to a colleague about a fake
He’ll be glad when the show comes to an end
Says there’s only so much you take in my friend
There’s only so much you can take in
There’s only so much you can take
