red the color of mars the end of a star the start of a new day red the color of sparks a leap in the dark the warmth of a sun ray red look what's begun a radiant sun rise startling first cries red the color of blood of pain and of love pain and of love red the color of mars your wandering star the start of your first day

Giant Tiger 02:30
there's a giant tiger and she's moving in the trees she's quiet on her four gigantic paws she's quiet as a whisper quiet as the breeze quiet as a breath between her jaws there's a giant tiger and she's moving in the trees she's wild and she hasn't any laws she doesn't say she's sorry she doesn't try to please she does the things she does because because creep tiger walk tiger sneak tiger stalk tiger breath tiger crouch tiger freeze tiger pounce there's a giant tiger and she's moving through the trees she's wild and she hasn't any laws she doesn't say she's hungry she just decides to eat and i hope she doesn't meet you when she does creep tiger walk tiger sneak tiger stalk tiger breath tiger crouch tiger freeze tiger pounce

who made my baby blue what bug is eating you what stone is in your shoe baby blue who made my baby cry who wet those weary eyes a cloud hangs over you baby blue so we go 1234 stomp on the floor gnash all your baby teeth or thrash with your hands and feet you're like the mean old centipede stomping on the off beats who made my baby blue and there is nothing your mom and your dad can do for you so relax, this too shall pass baby blue

the midnight blues begin to glow impossible indigo indigo, impossible possible blue close your eyes, just let go of the things that you think you know indigo, impossible possible you close your eyes, just let go of the things that you think you know indigo, improbably proba-believa-becausable impossible possible you

something familiar seen in the sky somehow peculiar in shimering light some apparition a quivering flame strange combination of sunlight and rain violet in the magic hour sky lit through a summer shower don't take a picture, see with your eye no need to whisper, you're already quiet just an illusion a quivering flame some strange confusion of sunlight and rain violet in the magic hour thousand petal lotus flower in bloom

broken string lullaby injured wing soon to fly tiny king baby mine on a sleepless night under billi lights whispering hard goodbyes to baby mine see through house just for now one more ounce, we'll write it down and soon we'll bounce baby mine tear off the tangled leads forget the abd's soon we'll leave baby mine i left your room trailing mom's balloon i promised you you'd be home soon such a tiny tug as i stepped outside i held a broken string for my tiny king look the moon's new twin watch it fly

the lion laughed with the loons the funeral flutes joined the bass bassoons the sky was dark, the moon was new silence tore a tune in two too dark to see, too dark to see the black balloon that carried me the black balloon that carried me above the houses and the trees above a thousand boughs and leaves above the sounds of empty streets through towns of people counting sheep too dark to see, too dark to see the black balloon that carried me the black balloon that carried me the lion laughed with the loons the violets wore a strange perfume the sky was dark, the moon was new i was there, and you were too too dark to see, too dark to see the black balloon that carried me the black balloon that carried me the black balloon that carried me

about

"For as Sound in a Bell or musical String, or other sounding Body, is nothing but a trembling Motion, and in the Air nothing but that Motion propagated from the Object, and in the Sensorium 'tis a Sense of that Motion under the Form of Sound; so Colours in the Object are nothing but a Disposition to reflect this or that sort of Rays more copiously than the rest; in the Rays they are nothing but their Dispositions to propagate this or that Motion into the Sensorium, and in the Sensorium they are Sensations of those Motions under the Forms of Colours."

-Isaac Newton
