Emperor Gum featuring Edric Haleen - Grey

from by Various Artists



After the dark of the night time

Before the colours of the day
In the glow of the morning's half-light
When all the worlds a shade of grey

Though the seasons change, the world
Before the sun is lit in grey

Black print stamped onto a white page
The words that you would write in stone
Those rights will run grey in the pouring rain
It doesn't rain on the unjust alone

You can't paint the world as black and white
With your words blurring all the time
I think there's more that lies in between
I won't sign your dotted line

I am sorry, truly sorry
That its not just yes or no
There's nothing here that is so simple
Even though you think I am so dull

No one casts a pitch black shadow
Our basest shade's a grey
I cannot love with all my heart
My passions only grey

So you can think that you are so bold
And you can think I am so cold

But without colour, photographs
Show all people in their grey scale
