"Poor Man's Grey" as written by and Matthew Good....
From Chicago to Miami
Shout New York, shout LA
Today we take the White House
And paint it poor man's gray

From London to Damascus
Cry Freetown in Marseilles
Today we take the blue sky
And paint it poor man's gray

My mama she done told me
There's heart and then there's hate
If one of them is inside of you
The other one it ain't

From the alleys on the East side
Where the train it throws the weight
Brother take that cheeky smile
And paint it poor man's gray

From Berlin to Havana
From Beijing to Bombay
Today we take the blue sky
And paint it poor man's gray

    General Commentthis song means like, everything's going bad, all over the world cuz he says the names of cities and places. 'poor man's grey' i guess he's saying that everyone's equal 'poor mans' and that everything's gone sour 'grey'. and the heart and hate thing is so true. you can't really love if you're full of hate, and yov can't really hate if ur full of love.
