I was thinking about thinking
About thinking about thinking
I was thinking
Contemplating situations
And the visions blew my mind

In the gutter I was crawling
As the shells just kept on falling
All around me

What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)

What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)

As the library was burning
And the pages kept on turning
Back in history
As the doorways they were full of refugees
And lonely people staring at me
They were asking of me

What color is God?
What color is God?
What color is God?
What color is God?

No matter what I say or do
It never looks like making any difference
Don't keep on looking down at me
As if I don't exist, as if I'm not here

Don't focus all your anger and resentment that you have
Don't blame it out on me, don't blame it on me

What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)

What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me?)
Why can't you tell me?
(Can't you tell me?)

Black brother in an open sports car
Pulled over by suspicious officer
Uniformed man got a nervous partner
Weapon was pulled from a shoulder holster

White jogger see the roadside gangsta
Heart beat just a little bit faster
Rasta man speaking in the island patois
Gonna give you the righteous answer

(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)

What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)

No matter what I say or do
It never looks like making any difference
Don't focus all your anger and resentment that you have
Don't blame it on me, don't blame it on me

What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)

What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me? Can't you tell me?)
What color is God?
(Why can't you tell me?)
Why can't you tell me?
(Can't you tell me?)

(Please, please, please tell me)
What color is God?
(Please)
What color is God? What color is God?
(Please, please tell me)
What color is God?

(Please, please, please tell me)
(Please, please, please tell me)
