Different Colors

Album: Talking Is Hard (2014)
  • Coming up slowly, oh, sun over the hill
    Daylight still a long time coming
    But I know it will
    Been under their spell, oh, but we're coming awake
    So we'll be rude, we'll be loud
    As long as it takes

    This is why, this is why,
    We crank the dial to the right
    Ooh this is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right

    Different colors
    We carry each other
    We're just different colors
    This is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right

    We keep cracking the music up
    Driving through our towns
    But they don't wanna hear
    They want us to turn it down
    So come on lovers, come on haters
    Tonight we raise the fire
    'Cause when the people get to dancing
    They forget about taking sides

    This is why, this is why
    We crank the dial to the right
    Ooh this is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right, sing

    Different colors
    We carry each other
    We're just different colors
    This is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right

    (For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction)

    We're coming awake, out of your spell,
    As long as it takes, we're coming awake

    We're coming awake, out of your spell,
    As long as it takes, we're coming awake

    This is why, this is why,
    We crank the dial to the right
    This is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right

    I said this is why, this is why
    We turn it up all night
    Oh this is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right

    Different colors
    We carry each other
    We're just different colors
    This is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right

    Different colors
    We carry each other
    We're just different colors
    This is why we're biting the bullet
    We know the kids are right Writer/s: ELI MAIMAN, KEVIN RAY, NICHOLAS PETRICCA, SEAN WAUGAMAN
