He stumbled into faith and thought,
'God, this is all there is'.
The pictures in his mind arose,
and began to breathe.
And all the gods in all the worlds
began colliding on a backdrop of blue.

Blue lips, blue veins.

He took a step but then felt tired.
He said 'I'll rest a little while'.
But when he tried to walk again,
he wasn't a child.
And all the people hurried fast,
real fast and no one ever smiled.

Blue lips, blue veins. Blue,
The color of our planet from far, far away.
Blue lips, blue veins. Blue
The color of our planet from far, far away.

He stumbled into faith and thought,
'God, this is all there is'.
The pictures in his mind arose,
and began to breathe.
And no one saw and no one heard,
they just followed lead.
The pictures in his mind awoke,
and began to breed.

They started out beneath the knowledge tree.
Then they chopped it down to make white picket fences,
And, marching along the railroad tracks,
They smile real wide for the camera lenses.
They made it past the enemy lines
Just to become enslaved in the assembly lines.

Blue lips, blue veins. Blue,
The color of our planet from far, far away.
Blue lips, blue veins. Blue,
The color of our planet from far, far away.
Blue,
The most human color.
Blue,
The most human color.
Blue,
The most human color...
Blue lips, blue veins. Blue,
The color of our planet from far, far away.
