Lyrics (fan transcription):
he stumbled into faith and thought,
god, this is all there is
the pictures in his mind arose
and began to breathe
and all the gods in all the worlds
began colliding on a backdrop of blue

blue lips, blue veins

he took a step but then felt tired
he said, I'll rest a little while
but when he tried to walk again
he wasn't a child
and all the people hurried past, real fast
and no one ever smiled

blue lips, blue veins,
blue, the color of our planet from far, far away

he stumbled into faith and thought,
god, this is all there is
the pictures in his mind arose
and began to breathe
and no one saw and no one heard
they just followed the lead
the pictures in his mind awoke
and began to breed

they started off beneath the knowledge tree
then they chopped it down to make white picket fences
and marching along the railroad tracks
they smiled real wide for the camera lenses
they made it past the enemy lines
just to become enslaved in the assembly lines

blue lips, blue veins,
blue, the color of our planet from far, far away...

blue, the most human color...
