From Live's first Album

The Beauty Of Gray

If I told you he was your brother
we could reminisce
then you would go about your day
If I said you ought to give him
some of your water
you'd shake your canteen and turn away

The perception that divides you from him
is a lie
For some reason you never asked why
This is not a black and white world
You can't afford to believe in your side

This is not a black and white world
To be alive
I say that the colours must swirl
And I believe
that maybe today
We will all get to appreciate

The beauty of gray

If I told you that she was your mother
We could analyze the situation and be gone
If I said you ought to give her
some of your water
your eyes would light up like the dawn

The perception that divides you from her
is a lie
For some reason you never asked why
This is not a black and white world
You can't afford to believe in your side

This is not a black and white world
To be alive
I say that the colours must swirl
And I believe
that maybe today
We will all get to appreciate

The beauty of gray

Look into your eyes
no daylight
New day now
