lyrics

Deep is the ocean on the wave that carries the whale’s song
Strong is the shoreline to resist the tide
High is the treetop on the wind which carries the sparrows song
Strong is the cedar that grips the soil
And I don’t wanna live in a monotone world
I want our voices to rise
No, I don’t wanna live in a monotone world
I want our voices to rise, rise, rise
Black is the endless abyss, within the iris, between the stars
White is a snowfall on a winter’s night
Black is the raven, the writer’s feather, the ink well drawn
White is a wild fox in northern clime
And I don’t wanna live in a monochrome world
I want our true colours to shine
No, I don’t wanna live in a monochrome world
I want our true colours to shine, shine, shine
And I don’t wanna live in a monotone world
I want our voices to rise
No, I don’t wanna live in a monochrome world
I want our true colours to shine
Shine, shine
