STORY: Listen to the words. Unless you are always right.
Not long ago, the last thing I woulda wore
Was some over-sized sweatshirt
With a gangster hood on the back
And on the front it says "Eastside"
But you know what?
Thats exactly what my family bought for me
And it made me open up my mind
And now I wear it all the time
You know I've always lived in the west
But lately I've begun to suspect
That just maybe I've been seein' things
From only one side
So I walk in faith
I know I'm not always right
Cuz when I turn around I can see that its left
From the other mans side
There's just too much life
To only see the black and the white
And I hope that someday soon
We can paint the moon
Like a rainbow in the night
Like a rainbow in the night

And I know a man. He just couldn't understand.
Every time he swung at his enemies
He seemed to hit his friends
Now his friends are gone
And his enemy lives on
And you know that his enemy's just another man
Who thinks he knows right from wrong
And he lives deep down inside
And he'll kill for the price of a song
So I walk in faith
I know I'm not always right
Cuz when I turn around I can see that its left
From the other mans side
There's just too much life
To only see the black and the white
And I hope that someday soon
We can paint the moon
Like a rainbow in the night
Like a rainbow in the night
Just like a rainbow. Just like a rainbow
Just like a rainbow. Just like a rainbow
And I hope that someday soon
We can paint the moon
Like a rainbow in the night
