- Verse
A piece of canvas is on;y the beginning
It takes on character with every loving stroke
Thins thing of beauty is the passion of an artist's heart
By God's design, we are a skin kaleidoscope

We gotta come together, aren't we all human after all?

- Rap (played the same as chorus)
Well, just a day in the shoes of a color blind man
Should make it easy for you to see
That these diverse tone do more than color our bones
As a part of our anatomy

Chorus (twice) 
sometime during the chorus change to this rif or have another guitar do it.
