lyrics

6:10 in the morning
I've got a date with another silhouette on the floor
Oh no! This date is on me.

8:10 in the morning
I'm beating odds, but the sun is beating down on my ears
And I lost my pessimism
'Cause my body is a prism

(Colors)
(Of A-)
(Nother)
(Universe)


(Music) Violet, you're Indi-goin'
(Under-) Somewhere, tonight so don't you look so Blue
(-stands The) Green and Yellow, envious and mellow
(Way I Feel) The Orange in your head that I have just Red

Fast-forward or replay,
I'm in a lime-colored carriage, bit the side of my cheek
Cops know about the diamonds

But let's give 'em the slip now
We'll make a dash for the other corner grocery store
Let's just leave the stash here
With that withdrawn thrifty cashier

This all really happened!
I saw the colors of a rainbow through the back of my eye
Back and forth in the morning

Not going to complain
The alarm sound massages the side of my brain
And I lost my pessimism
When my body became a prism

(Colors)
(Of A-)
(Nother)
(Universe)

(Music) Violet, you're Indi-goin'
(Under-) Somewhere, tonight so don't you look so Blue
(-stands The) Green and Yellow, envious and mellow
(Way I Feel) The Orange in your head that I have just Red
