They always say
that I'm sitting alone in black and white

as the world spins around me

in flying colors.

But all of these colors
faded away
long ago

long before you or I was around
to make anything to show

for ourselves.

All I see
is all left for there to be...
Yeah, I'm in black and white,

and gray's a horrid hue,
but there's a mistake

so stealthily within you.

There is no rainbow.
There is no sky.
Nothing's flying, and we all know why.

All I see is Stygian Blue.
The color of a void.
The color of what cannot

and should not

But it's all in my sight,
the color of fatigue,
the color that truly proves there's something wrong with me.

It's impossible
for unconditioned eyes to see,
like lightning from the windows of the library.

My vision field,
a state of false-created dreams,
distorted scenes,

where people's screams
seem to be the only rivalry.

My mind, it turns the Earth to impossible dark and night,
a negative of any light,
the reflections, they aren't right.

They shouldn't be there.
The saturation,

it would overload
due to all

its overflow
it's unattainable

without lack of crimson sleep.
Something that, forgetting,

you can't count sheep.

Yet, it's such a masterpiece,
with all the ways the shadows weave,
to me it's full of beauty.

Even though I know it's wrong,
I consider myself lucky-

Something none of you will ever get to gaze upon, and so pretty,
It's all I will ever see.

What a loss it must be for you,
how you'll never see my Stygian Blue.

Hey, what's up Eevee army?

I love metaphors. ;u;

But uh... this is sort of a "I see the world for what it is, and it's not pretty" if you didn't pick up on it. I know it's kinda obscure... *shrugs*

Also, YES STYGIAN BLUE IS A "REAL" COLOR. You just can't see it under normal circumstances. :meow:

Here-… stare for 10-60 seconds (it says 20-60 but 10 worked for me) at the fatigue template, then switch to the matching target field. I also kinda like the self-luminous red. Not that much the hyperbolic orange. :/

So yeah. Stygian Blue is my new favorite color and also an inspiration.

"Stygian blue" does sound nice.

It is a beautiful color. v-v Unfortunately it is only available through fatigue effects, thus rendering it impossible to color anything in it, or even "see" it for more than a few seconds at a time.

Believe me though, if I could, I'd have my room painted Stygian blue. XD

Hyperbolic green would be cool, I think.

I'm gonna make a fatigue template/target field combo for that now. X3
