The Lyrics

Nearly a decade ago I couldn't come up with something to submit for the Lifehouse artistry round and it always bugged me so FINALLY after all these years here is my submission to a contest which ended about 5 years ago
What shade is this
On the color chart?
Can't tell if it's "Cool Mint" or "White"
There's "Sepia" but there's also "Brown"
It's confusing to my eyes

Cause there's "Blue" and "Green" and "Orange" and "Purple"
And "Pumpkin" and "Puce", There's "Goldenrod" too
Plus there's "Plum" and "Peach" and "Denim" and "Eggplant"
But I'm color-blind so there's none of these in my view

All of the things that all of you see to me look kinda weird
This apple is "Gray"
And so's this banana
As well as this popcorn and beer

But there's "Tan" and "Pink", "Raw Umber" and "Salmon"
"Brick Red" and there's "Maize" (Aren't you amazed?!)
Can't see "Blush" or "Gold", "Cornflower" or "Silver"
Since I'm color-blind there's none of these in my view

Something about my eyes
I can't quite figure out
Everything I see is monochrome
Everything I see is "Gray"

There's "Mahogany" and "Wild Blue Yonder"
"Celestial Blue", "Periwinkle" too
There's "Cotton Candy" and "Granny Smith Apple"
But I'm color-blind so I can't see "Robin's Egg Blue"

Can't see these Crayola colors
They all seem the same, All seem quite lame
And it screws with me, My art-skills are feeble
Since I'm color-blind these vibrant Sharpies look like poo

What shade is this?
Coloring sucks
Since my rods and cones are deprived

In OpenOffice there's a color called "lax" and I might build a short parody around that used as a pun one day if an opportunity presents itself.
