"Humdrum And Humble" as written by and Orzabal,roland/griffiths,alan....
Mistress of the mind
Take me where the air is clean
Ignorance is kind
Emerald and evergreen

30 days September, year of miracle and grief
Through the haze, Remember
You're an animal, not a mineral

And we won the war, lost the battle
Lost the war, won the battle
Won the war, lost the battle
Lost the war
All for the love of the humdrum and humble
Color for the colorblind
All for the love of the humdrum and humble

Through the human eye
Nature a soul extreme
Nothing seems to die
Pictures in a magazine

Through the maze, precisely
Through the myriad of schemes
With your gaze, entice me
Like an animal, not a mineral

And we won the war, lost the battle
Lost the war, won the battle
Won the war, lost the battle
Lost the war
All for the love of the humdrum and humble
Colour for the colourblind
All for the love of the humdrum and humble

Through the maze, precisely
Through the myriad of schemes
With your gaze, entice me
Like an animal, not a mineral

And we won the war, lost the battle
Lost the war, won the battle
Won the war, lost the battle
Lost the war
All for the love of the humdrum and humble
Color for the colorblind
All for the love of the humdrum and humble
Rubbishing the philistines
All for the love of the humdrum and humble
