"And I" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
Some were reborn
Some were simply shaken free
And some were the colors
That took to the streets

They found in those later years
They knew what we need
It's love for each other
And every living thing

And all my time (all my time)
Is used
It's all my only and lonely time too

Some simply shaken free,
Some were the colors,
That took through the streets

They thought in those younger years
They knew what to do
They knew what to say
Had nothing to lose

Now pick up and pack up
The place you were pink
And falling around
Dripping and crawling and
Clawing and inside
You're missing some sounds

The ones that float, carry
And dance about time,
And space that it lends
Room to be free
Like the sun and the moon
Save for the sounds

Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I

We'll be reborn
We'll simply be free
And we'll be the colors
That pour through the streets

And find in our after years
That we're all, we're all the same
We're all made of colors
And pour through the streets

Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I
Take from the air, take to the streets, and I

    General Commenthere come the completed lyrics below... enjoy them with you all together.

    Some were reborn
    Some were simply shaken free
    Some were the colors
    That took to the streets

    They found in those later years
    They knew what we need
    It's love for each other
    And every living thing

    And now all my time
    Is used
    It's only
    Lonely time too

    Some were simply shaken free
    Some were the colors
    That took to the streets

    They thought in those younger years
    They knew what to do
    They knew what to say
    Had nothing to lose

    Now pick up and pack up the place you were pink
    And falling around
    Dripping and crawling and clawing inside
    You're missing some sounds

    The ones that float carry and dance about time
    And space that it lends
    Room to be free like the sun and the moon
    Save for the sound

    Take from the heir
    Take to the streets
    And I (x4)

    We'll be reborn
    Yeah we'll simply be free
    We'll be the colors
    That pour through the streets

    And find in their after years
    That we're all the same
    We're all the colors
    That pour through the streets

    Take from the heir
    Take to the streets
    And I (x4)

    Take from the heir
    Take to the streets
    And I (x2)

    General Commentthis song is absolutely amazing.

    it seems like its a song about being free from all material bonds. just being truly free.

    General CommentI think it is somewhat about being free from material ties, but I think it's going further and talking about reincarnation and the interconnectedness of everything- how as humans we are related to everything, even the colors that wash down the streets. and the only way to live is to love everything and eachother as much as we love ourselves.

    General CommentI think it's about all the different races of people. How we're all the same and colour doesn't matter, prejudice is meaningless, you're only putting down yourself, and how humans as a race are learning that as our species ages.

    General Commentmore or less i think its about finally realizing purpose in your life and what it finally takes for you to realize it.

    General CommentIt's missing some lyrics after "save for the sounds" before "we'll be reborn". Something about air. Either way, GREAT song.I think it's their best song yet.

    General Commentthere is a lot of songs on censored colors that have such a wide topic lyrically just about life in general and everything in general like colors, and i, created, our way, and out and in and in and out. maybe its just my opinion but i Know the other 3 previous cds were much different ( i love em all) I think its almost obvious what those songs mean just by listening to them wether or not you can explain out loud or not, not all of there songs come right out and tell you what they mean (they use al ot of metaphors) and maybe im just misinterpreting it or see it differently but I think the cd as a whole is colors of life censored by our reality perspective. "censored colors" or thats what it means to me
