"Colors of The Sun" as written by and Jackson Browne....
Colors of the sun
Flashing on the water top
Echo on the land

Picking for a coin
Many other tiny worlds
Singing past my hand

Awake to understand you are not dreaming
It is not seaming just to be this way
Dying men draw numbers in the air
Dream to conquer little bits of time
Scuffle with the crowd to get their share
And fall behind their little bits of time

Voices in the air
Sympathetic harmony
Coming from the trees

Hanging at my door
Many shiny surfaces
Clinging in the breeze

Oh, leave me where I am I am not losing
If I am choosing not to plan my life
Disillusioned savior search the sky
Wanting to just to show someone the way
Asking all the people passing by
Doesn't anybody want the way

I say goodbye to Joseph and Maria
They think I see another sky
And from my fallen window I still see them
I'll never free them from the sky

    General CommentI love the line "disillusioned savior search the sky, wanting just to show somenone the way." To me the line isabout someone who has visions of saving people via his thoughts and ideas, but can't find anyone to listen.

    General Comment"...Asking all the people passing by
    Doesn't anybody want the way"

    makes me think of some religious fanatic on the street in New York City shouting verses, as business people pass briskly buy, not listening...

    ...as they "scuffle with the crowd to get their share,
    and fall behind their little bits of time."

    "I say goodbye to Joseph and Maria," intrigues me. Joseph is a Biblical name, and Maria, latin / spanish for Mary...

    seems to be about an individual who neither wants to be a part of that material world, nor do they want to hide in an orthodox religion, so they are left only to explore and search on their own for some meaning.
