Looking for a penny on an empty beach
I've been looking for a lover who has eyes to see
While I'm here I wanna walk with you, hold you hand
In the sun, in the sun, in the sun, in the sun

Turquoise is the color I need to get clean
The forrest burns, and with it something inside me

Looking for a way to leave the world today
But the world is gonna leave itself anyway
While I'm here I wanna walk with you, hold your hand
In the sun, in the sun, in the sun

Turquoise is the color I need to get clean
The forrest burns, and with it something inside me

Together, together, together, together
Together, in the sun

I need to get clean
I need, I need, I need

Turquoise is the color I need to get clean
The forrest burns, and with it something inside me

Looking for a way to leave the world today

    General Commentis it such a bother to spellcheck before you post? i mean, really: "forrest"? it just makes you look sort of foolish.

    also: "hold your hand" (as opposed to "hold you hand")

    General CommentYou don't always have to be popular to be one of the best bands ever. VAST is absolutely amazing, both their lyrics and the ambience created by the music. They are one of my favorite bands (second only to the Smashing Pumpkins) and I highly suggest their first and second albums, "Visual Audio Sensory Theater" and "Music for People." Both albums blow me out of the water.

    And always looking for a way to escape of something or to work something out..

    General CommentI LOVE this song... It's definitely one of my favorites... But can some one figure out the significance of the color turquoise? It's been plaguing me since the moment I heard it...

    General CommentTurquoise is the only bit I can figure out...
    I know it's tempting to put the meaning of a lot of songs down to drugs, but 'I need to get clean' sounds a heck of a lot like that. Given that, I'd imagine that turquoise is a pretty common paint scheme for the inside of a rehab centre.

    General CommentI think that the color turquoise merely refers to the color of the ocean. Such a reference seems to fit with the lyrics "looking for a penny on an empty beach" and "in the sun." A turquoise ocean fits with water's traditional use as a symbol of purity and means of "getting clean."

    General CommentHowever, the speaker's intended means of "getting clean" seems to be drowning himself in the ocean ("looking for a way to leave the world today").
