The Lyrics

Within the "red" states and "blue" states, are some people you would have to use the color of common sense to describe--whatever color that is.
Blue and red
And after all, some might be lavender instead
Red and blue
God only knows there are a myriad of hues

You label me in your category
It's all neat and trim
But the chances I fit in the bounds that you've set
Are so very slim

Red and blue
And tell me now, what kind of State are you?
Black and white
You ever thought that little map ain't right?

Haven't you heard they will label with words
And find a name for you
You're a puppet, it seems
Dangling from the strings
You're either red or blue

Wash and rinse
And try to get a little bit of common sense
There's no doubt
someone will gladly
Say what you're about

Where would we be without unity
Take a look behind
For the very high price
Of man's sacrifice
Our Union thrives

hear hear Royce, and coincidentally, and appropriately, my alter-ego over here, in true Reservoir-Dogs style, is Mr Mauve - and I agree, every Union/Country thrives on common-sense/individual-decison- making and accountability c/f the blindly loyal following of a red herd or a blue herd, like they're a favourite football team or something - 555
