"I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish (Repeats)
But it's all in vain" (Repeats)

Different colors, different faces
Different schools in different places
Scour the morning papers, all in vain
Evening after, who remembers?
Say your prayers for the great pretenders
I see nothing but flowers, all in vain

"I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish (Repeats)
But it's all in vain" (Repeats)

All the gravestone elegies
I-never-met-you memories
And every T. V. Picture, all in vain
All your questions, deep as skin
Seperate worlds to put them in
Another might-have-been, all in vain

"I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish" (Repeats)

Color blind as tse-tse flies
Sucking all our difference dry
And as we sleep they multiply (Repeats)
"All in vain" (Repeats)
Multiply (Repeats)
