lyrics

Take my yellow sucking gun
Drain the color from the sun.

Use the the white that's left inside
To fuel the red that used to hide.

Green the grass with the bugs
And give the blue men tiny hugs.

Blackened ash laid in tan vases
As clear tears stain paler faces.

Light and noise make colors waving in the sky
Notes and rhythms swirl up high
Eyes are turning skyward seeing beauty
Know the way we used to be

Orange flowers trampled down
Purple shoes with laces brown.

Beauty colored random dies
Man made beauty to the eyes.

Poison red to earth stained blue
There go all the pretty hues.

Goodbye nature hello black
But we still want the color back.

Dirty hands come reaching up from iron holes
As we bow to master coal
Darkness billows from the ugly smoked-stacked house
Sucking life from the child's mouth

The color dies
The color dies
