about

For all of our wonderful skills and intelligence, we humans have some serious shortcomings. Especially when it comes to how we perceive each other. This song addresses those failings and some animal assets we could really benefit from these days. -- MJ

lyrics

You and I to my dog’s eye, look like we are kin
One dark brown and one light beige, we’re just people to him
Life without much color suits a pooch just fine
Think how happy the world could be if people were color blind, color bind

Blue whales don’t know that they’re blue, angry bulls don’t see red
Your cat’s days are shades of greys and that doesn’t trouble his head
Life a bit less vivid might be quite divine
Think how happy the world could be if people were color blind

Color blind, color blind
Black coal would be precious gold, if people were color blind

The human eye has a unique gift for seeing every shade to be seen
But all those tones lead to throwing stones and makes some people act foolish and mean
What if our perception was something more canine?
Think how happy the world could be if people were color blind,

Color blind, color blind
We’d be friends despite our skins, if people were color blind
Color blind, color blind,
Black coal would be precious gold, if people were color blind
