Favorite Quote:
Often times, the test of courage is not to die, but to live.
~ Vittorio Alfieri


We are all so confused
Bombs are booming
People are being abused
And as the thunder rolls on
Freedom is a dying song
It’s another
Technicolor Saturday

The murder
The devastation
Poverty
Family separation
It’s another
Technicolor Saturday
Refrain:
Someday will we live in harmony?
Like the way things used to be?
Can this planet be saved?
From this Technicolor Saturday

People twisting religion
Asking for more than what’s already been given
Throwing what they have away

And we ask for answer
A reason why
But one doesn’t come
Will it ever come?

Races can’t live in harmony
We can’t leave each other alone
Trying to be the divine race
And oppressing the female gender

And we stray from the path
Say it’s for good reason
But we won’t go back to the way things were yesterday
Cuz its
Technicolor Saturday

Someday will we live in harmony?
Like the way things used to be?
Can this planet be saved?


The author's comments:
I wrote this for all people affected by corruption in the world...it makes me angry!!! The term technicolor saturday refers to what people have reported as "permanent spots of color" in their vision after a bomb goes off.
