Titian puts down his paintbrush and picks up his guitar

by Roger West

mussel shell tuna fin cuttlefish ink
pyrite powder azurite zinc
cerulean celadon cadet and celeste
crows wing gull feather robin egg ravens nest
midnight diamond byzantine slate
imperial prussian palatinate
the heart of the spark at the heart of the flame
ferrocyanide blood in the vein
kingfisher starfish silver lake and capri
peacock periwinkle anemone
indigo aqua ultramarine
french fig and damson and aubergine
cornflour columbine lapis lazuli
indian ocean mediterranean sea
ice cap polar night magnetic ash
rock salt and cobalt thunderbolt flash
berber and breton ceylon and chartreuse
jesuit sacristan la vierge douleureuse
turquoise and teal tiffany true
woke up this morning, baby, I had all of those blues
yeah, woke up this morning, baby, I had all of those blues
all of those blues
all of those blues
