Black and White

Happy or sad can seem so far different
In a world of black and white
Where do I fit in it?

Only two feelings? What's in between?
There's has to be more here
Black, White? Blue, Yellow, Green?

Who took the rainbow away? Who's to blame?
In order for someone to be sad,
Doesn't it have to rain?

Somewhere in between, there has to be pain
But maybe the sun shines
Just after the hurricane

We sure felt our deal of sadness
Seems like we're still caught in blackness
Who's going to shine to end the madness?

Maybe the only in between is gray
In that case we see a dull world
Cause we never see the light of day

Black and white, we're looking at both
Right now it's a ti-tor totter life
And black is the slippery slope

If money was color, no wonder we're broke
In this debt so damn deep
The economies having a stroke

Don't forget, we tripped ourselves
Color is cracked, like the liberty bell
Is this possible, getting out of hell?

There's such thing as baby steps
Such thing as taking reps
Little by little, the easier it gets

Slow but sure, color will return
Chip away, step by step
Cause color has to be earned
