Amber

Album: From Chaos (2001)
  • Brainstorm, take me away from the norm'
    I've got to tell you something
    This phenomenon, I had to put it in a song
    And it goes like

    Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

    You want to know what brings me here
    You glide through my head, blind to fear
    And I know I

    Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

    Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

    You live too far away
    Your voice rings like a bell anyway
    Don't give up your independence
    Unless it feels alright
    Nothing good comes easily
    Sometimes you've got to fight

    Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

    Lost a thousand ships in my heart so easy
    Still it's fine from afar
    And you know that

    Whoa
    Brainstorm
    Take me away from the norm'
    Whoa
    I've got to tell you something Writer/s: Nicholas Hexum

  • Joey from Westville, Nygreat band, great song.
  • Jon from Los Angeles, CaActually... most people never changed the lyrics to that. I've been to many many shows and never once heard that before. I think my "many people" you mean you and your drunk friends.
  • Michael from Costa Mesa, CaMost people when they heard this song changed the lyrics to "Whoa, Amber is the color of my urine stream" (as a reference to drinking alot of beer and having to use the restroom) This was played on KROQ 106.7 here in the Los Angeles/Orange County area here in Southern California
