Paint It Black

I see a white door and they want it painted black
No colours anymore, they want to turn them black
I see the girls walk by, dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head, until the darkness goes

No more will our green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My nation lasts with me, until the morning comes

I look inside myself and my heart’s turning black
Act before the tragedy, we want our nation back
Up ’til then some fade away, too scared to face the facts
It’s not easy facing up, when your whole world seems black

Don’t wanna see your face, painted black, black as night
Don’t wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
Don’t wanna see you painted, painted, painted, painted black, black as night
