Today, riding the slow train along the way
Going to who knows where and who knows when
Not knowing where you're rolling
It's the learning of this journey.

I feel if all of you people gather and believe
Being what makes you breathe in is enough
Promise to carry on from each moment
To the next one.

These beautiful colours, infinite patterns
Are all I see
And if we're all of the same blood there's not one Of you who is the same as me
Clouds of beautiful colours
Indifferent to what you believe
Sometimes the beauty of it all seems unbearable 'til The colours bleed
(Keep breathing...)

Design - everyone's their own universe
Besides - life is a standard issue to customize
Ashes to understanding is the nature of existence.

These beautiful colours, infinite patterns
Are all I see
And if we're all of the same blood there's not one Of you who is the same as me
Proud beautiful colours
Indifferent to what you believe
Sometimes the beauty of it all seems unbearable 'til The colours bleed
(Keep breathing...)

Keep breathing
Keep loving

These beautiful colours, infinite patterns
Are all I see
And now if we're all of the same blood
There's not one Of you who is the same as me
Crowds of beautiful colours
Indifferent to what you believe
Sometimes the beauty of it all seems unbearable 'til The colours bleed

Keep breathing
Keep loving

    General CommentThis song sound to me as if We are All Individuals going on our Own Journeys through life, & this does't matter what color You are or where Your from. Only You can decide what You want to do & where You want to be. It also sounds as if Us fans actually help give Simon & the gang a strong reason to believe & to move on. As Simon would say,

    Not knowing where you're rolling
    It's the learning of this journey.

    General CommentI can't believe this song has been overlooked for a comment because, in my opinion, it's up there with John Lennon's "Imagine" as a great secular spiritual anthem of our times. It alludes the the spectrum of life from gender and sexuality through to the colour of our skins. We are all united, always for all time as we are made of star dust. This a song of absolute heart-centred feeling..... Feel the Es, but also feel the transcendent truth! "Keep breathing... Keep loving".
