"Colourful Life" as written by and Robert Guy Stern Daniel Blumberg....
I'd love to go to a brand new place
But recognize the sky
A brand new motion yet same old people
And that's the reason why

Colors and honey are in your eyes
As your life flies high
But before you know it, you fall in a pit
Your life flashes before your lies

And the lights just march on by
And the crowd, they walk and sigh
Yet time is slow

Feel the world on my hands
Trust incentives of a band
Because the weight is thick yet thin
Drop it now and destroy what's in

So pick up the pace and enjoy the race
Because nothingness is nice
Feel the dance, and feel the mood
While you're munching on that slice

Don't have to spit out your thumb or your Wrigley's gum
Because they're both a waste of time
But don't crush the bird just for fun
Because that's not fun for everyone

    General CommentAlright, I have sort of a dumb question. The line, "don't crush the bird, just for fun, cos' thats not fun for every one!" Is that some sort of Brit slang (my friend and I [neither of us are British obv] though "bird" = random girl, "crushing the bird" = having sex), or is it actually supposed to be taken literally?

    General Comment'spit out your thumb or the Wrigleys gum'... these lyrics seem to have a different meaning every time I listen to them.
    I love the whole album, and I especially love his voice... it's first album I've bought
    (okay, so that does include Natasha Beddingfield and Sugababes, admittedly) where EVERY song is a delectable adventure. Except maybe 'Buttercups'.
    I listened to the album whilst reading Hans Christian Andersen's fairytales... I recommend the combination to anyone... they go together like
    bangers and mash!
