don't paint your colors on me

when you're too blind to see

that there's so much more to me

than you'll likely understand

i'm more than just a shade of white

that creeps up on you late at night

and slowly disappears at light

to hide into the day

all the words you need to hear

fall silently on your dead ears

they fall away like wasted years

but i've said them just the same

i'm not tuned into color schemes

you live in lands of make-believe

where nothing is quite what it seems

and hatred's all around

if you choose to be my friend

you must do more than just pretend

you've got a mind that transcends

the pettiness of time

if you're big enough to look through

the labels here that have no proof

and know there are no absolutes ~

we are all the same.
