For color in a black and white portrait

by Nick Trees

Black and white
Contemplating special moments in my life
Looking to the light but it’s too damn bright for me eyes
What am I supposed to do?
When I’m looking at you?
I can’t decide, what am I doing with my life?
I gotta follow my heart

Black and white
You in sight
I ain’t ever seen the reason why
I can be the answer to your life
Or I can be the answer to the problems to
Or what do I do?
I’m running out of time and I need to find the answers now
Before I disappear in sound, I ain’t ever seen why

I’m looking for the savior
Now I’m speaking thru the prayer
How am I supposed to make it here?
When I feel alone, feel alone, feel alone, everywhere I go
I gotta be strong, I know I ain’t wrong when I don’t feel I belong
Now I am hopin’ for a song to be a brighter one

Look at the color fade away they wanna see me in the grave
Walk the line of shame prayin’ for the better days
Never stopping to admit they might be right
Never validating words that they try to use to hold me back
I fight them with the wisdom
Trying to hold me in a prison of my own creation
But when I understand I can be free
I break loose and cause havoc
They try to make a story tragic for profits and advantage
But who the fuck is they?

Black and white
Contemplating special moments in my life
Looking to the light but it’s too damn bright for me eyes
What am I supposed to do?
When I’m looking at you?
I can’t decide, what am I doing with my life?
I gotta follow my heart


It’s real bleak and I don’t know what I’m doing
Trying to feel it from the brain and sustain the words
Never complain at the change and all the changing nerves
Changing the nerves and the words
They went from brain to brain dead
The brain strong, the pains gone, but this ain’t feelin’ right
Heading to the black and white, now I’m

Looking for the savior
Now I’m speaking thru the prayer
How am I supposed to make it here?
When I feel alone, feel alone, feel alone, everywhere I go
I gotta be strong, I know I ain’t wrong when I don’t feel I belong
Now I am hopin’ for a song to be a brighter one

I hate money losing all the care about it
Burn it in the face of greedy populations
Where it’s so damn crowded
Feed them money so they can feed their desires
Call it hell when success is defined by money and fire
Losing focus on what’s real
Magician secrets I revealed
Working hard for dollar meals
And never knowing how to feel, about it all, about it all

Everybody looking the same
Why you gotta fiend for the crème
On a road where it doesn’t know anything but obscenity?
Who you gonna be?
How you gonna be when you come to see yourself in jubilee?
Now you gotta be somebody else, why you wanna be somebody else?
When it’s all about you gotta be yourself
Living in a black and white scene
With a beautiful thing that I can’t even see
Cuz of all of the things that I cannot believe
Are fading changing disappearing from me
