In the second line (and recurring) do you mean pigment or figment? I wasn't sure if it was a typo or not.
An interesting style you choose here. I'm not sure what I think to this use of refrain. Personally I don't but I think there's merit in it when you have a point to drive across. I think it could do with being a little more subtle though, maybe different every time but following patterns (kind of what you do at the end when you basically invert the statement)
*goes to top and reads that they are lyrics*
Makes more sense now I always forget to check that...
It's really difficult to comment on lyrics when you only have the words and no sound. They really rely on the music to truly feel what they are about and appreciate them.
I think the detached story-with-message style works well for the subject here. It makes things pretty ambiguous as to whether the writer/singer really is detached from it all or if it is actually very personal.
