Counting Crows – Colorblind lyrics

I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (Repeat 3 times)
I am taffy stuck and tongue tied
Stutter-shook and uptight
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (Repeat 3 times)
I am fine
I am covered in skin
No one gets to come in
Pull me out from inside
I am folded and unfolded and unfolding
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (Repeat 3 times)
I am fine (Repeat 3 times)

    This song is about life and the challenges we face in it. It's about getting rid of the gray that we have and only recognizing the extreme ends of the spectrum. Also, after recognizing the extremes that we encounter in life, we must also recognize our willingness (or unwillingness) to show them and fix it. "I am covered in skin" is my favorite line. It means that we defend and protect ourselves from the evils of the world in different ways and at all costs. But in the end, we must pull down our defenses, and ignore what the world thinks, and act with out judging ourselves or anyone else.

    I think this song is bout how this person can't be who they truly are for other people "no one gets to come in". I also think that it is saying that they want to show who they truly are to the one they love, but it's a little scary. It is also saying that they need someone else to help them see "colors" again, that they can't do it alone "pull me out from inside". I don't know, but this is what it means to me.
