True Colours (with apologies to Cyndi)

 

You with the pink eyes

don't be discouraged.

Oh I realize

it's hard to take courage

in a world full of people

who are all the wrong colour,

you can lose sight of it all

and the darkness inside you

can make you feel so tall.

 

But I see your true colours

shining through.

I see your true colours

and that's why I loathe you.

So don't be afraid to let them show.

Your true colours,

true colours, are nauseous

like a migraine.

 

Show me a smile then.

Don't be unhappy, can't remember when

I last saw you laughing.

Oh sorry, yes I do, it was when that girl got killed at a neo-nazi rally

and it took you days to say that they were wrong

but now they're right – they had a permit,

so it's fine.

So if this world makes you crazy

and you've taken all you can bear,

you call me up

because you know I'll be there,

bearing arms

and a bullet with your name on it.

 

But I see your true colours

shining through.

I see your true colours

and that's why I loathe you.

So don't be afraid to let them show.

Your true colours,

true colours, are nauseous

like a migraine.
