Death of a Shade of a Hue - Of Montreal

Over a sea of grief Scarlet died
Above her dying mind were fossilfied memory imprints
Of her favorite day
For a minute I stayed watching this brilliant display
Until a god with a broom came and swept them away

In their bereavement, all of her colorful friends
Turned to a milky gray depressing blend
Which incidentally made Gray feel inane
So he set off to find a less trite identity
One as stunning and bold as Scarlet used to be
