Found and Followed

Where Every Colour Goes

One night we’re heading for the tunnel
Got turned around drove the river road
There was fire and gun shots
Across the river in Detroit
At the time I didn't know
I never heard the word riot

Because you were black
you were not wrong
Because you were white
you were not right
Equality Equality
Oh yea, Equality
It's a rainbow
Where every colour goes

On the campus a protest of peace and love
They marched together to the end a war
Guns were turned on them
But they weren't there to fight
They were just standing up
They thought that was their right

Because you stood up
you were not wrong
Because you chose war
Don't know what its for
Humanity Humanity
Oh yea, Humanity
It's a rainbow
Where every colour goes

(Bridge)
Time flows like a river
A river has two sides
On water you can float
We can make a tunnel
We can make a bridge
And we can build a boat

What now to protest in a world so complex
Got to be something about the money
Who has and who does not
Those rules are being made
By people with the power
Their game the one that’s played

Because they won't change
Are we so wrong
In the spirit giving
You can feel the loving
Generosity, generosity
Oh yea, Generosity
It's a rainbow
Where every colour goes
