[User Picture]10:31 pm - Nick Granato - Color Outside the Lines

There's a song that I'll admit I've adopted, sorta sworn by just before FC, and I think is one reason I've (for better or worse) taken less shit from others lately and inparticular one of the reasons I've more-or-less blown off people trying to blame me for the various drama that happened at FC that I was involved with.

It's not the best singer, I love the song though, and I'm tempted to try to record my own version if I could find someone to play music for it. It... fits a lot of folks in our fandom, I think. For better or worse.


You can do what you want,
As long as you keep to yourself.

You can be who you are,
As long as it's somewhere else...

It's a "Simon Says" life;
You must do what's expected!
After all, it's our way of life they're protecting...
So we follow the obvious,
The blind leading the blind...

And no one cares until you color outside the lines...

It's a paint-by-number... predictable... situation...
A black and white world with, Technicolor... implications...

Move to the rhythm, of a different drum?
One steps out and they all come undone!
They try to ignore, the things that they can't define...

And no one cares until you color outside the lines!

When it's not picture perfect,
And you dare to be different?
That's when they open their eyes!

Well they'll try to deny it,
And then try to hide it, by,
Covering up what they find!

The only time they look your way,
Is when you mess with their precious designs!

And no one cares until you color outside the lines...

It's not about how you look;
It's just your appearance.

No it's not about what you say;
It's just how they hear it.

Speak out of turn; they put a mark on the page!
Say too much? You'll be feeling their rage!
You must conform, to what they all decide...

`Cause no one cares, until you color outside the lines!

When it's not picture perfect,
And you dare to be different?
That's when they open their eyes!

Well they'll try to deny it,
And then try to hide it, by,
Covering up what they find!

The only time they look your way,
Is when you mess with their precious designs!

And no one cares until you color outside the lines...

 

'Cause they don't like your crayon shades,
Or the pictures that you choose!

And you're abstract style's just a bit too wild?
To say the least they're not amused...

Nah, don't let them stop you!
Don't let them tell you!
That you're "not doing it right!"

'Cause no one cares until you color outside the lines...

No one cares until you color outside the lines...

You see, God smiles, when you color outside the lines...!
