Princess (Magenta) [feat. Davin Givhan]

from Kaleidoscope by Monk Turner



My name is Jimmy I'm never late
To work the hardware, mixing paint
I live in a house my parents hate
I'm failing

I got to work my gear was down
I looked for help no one's around
I think I'd rather smoke a pound
I'm sailing

Something happened during the fix
The next time that I went to mix
I think my mind is playing tricks
Cause I fell in

I'm in a world I've never seen
It's dark and damp and mostly green
The poster on the wall reads,
"Have you seen Magenta?"

I gotta make it out
I gotta make it out
The silence is so loud

I asked someone who's in the know
They said, "she was kidnapped months ago.
It's up to you please Jimmy go and save her!"

The person said, "she's being held
In the Greenies' prison cell
To get her back you'll go through hell
But you'll save us all"

"You see, Magenta holds the key
This world was never really green
It's filled with vibrant color schemes
That she can bring"

And so I ventured on my way
To save Magenta and the day
And if I'm a success they say
I'll make it home

I gotta get her out
I gotta get her out
Hear all the people shout

We finally made it out
We finally made it out
I'll stay without a doubt
Marry Magenta
Start a family
Eat a sandwich
This place is pretty cool
