Rainbow, Rainbow - Poem by Daniel Oliveira

Dot your 'i''s and cross your 't''s
Wait 5 minutes it'll kick in (soon)
You shouldn't be the one to blame for feeling pain
It’s just another, medicated, form of abstinence
Consciously extracting you from tasting the rainbow
From being a shooting star yourself
From loving every moment that you are wishing you're alive
So dot them good and cross them well
It won't be long
You’ll soon be swell
But you'll never taste the friggin' rainbow
You’ll never taste the friggin' rainbow

So keep to your fairy dust
If it will do you well
It’ll take you higher and higher than before
To me you'll never seem so medicated
You’ll just never taste the friggin' rainbow

Dot your 'i''s and cross your 't''s
Wear this smile
Keep to your fantasy
Wear it well and wear it good
Dot your 'i''s and cross your 't''s
Wear this smile... it pays off.
