Sparky Vid

This is a way-too-early X-Mas present for ankareeda ^-^ It's a collaboration between my sister and myself.

Title: Shades of Grey
Spoiler: Season 1 - Season 2 (Critical Mass)
Summery: In our darkest hour we're all just shades of grey...
Size: 19 mb
Artist: Amanda Marshall
Lenght: 4:57 min
A/N: Uhm, it was supposed to be a little dramatic/sad but somehow it got that funny touch. That's why there are guest appereances by a Wraith Queen as grandmother, Caldwell as Malcolm X, Koyla as Elizabeth's brother and Rodney as a minister. Later the Liz from 'Before I Sleep' plays the role of the grandmother.
You see, Andy, the vid makes absolutely no sense whatsoever cause the lyrics are sad, some clips are sad but together with the nice speed-otion and the blurry phases (that are wanted (!)), the vid is just weird.
But we (my sis and I) still have hope that you like it...

Lyrics

I was an August baby
Conceived by the Christmas lights
I came into the world by the setting sun
On a humid summer night
When my grandmother held me for the very first time
She thanked God I looked like my daddy
And I never quite knew just what she meant
But I knew she was a little too happy
And now I see
You can't change a stubborn mind
You can't see the world if your eyes are blind
What does it matter anyway
In our darkest hour we're all just shades of grey

They got married in a tiny chapel
1965
Malcolm X was on the radio
When he took her as his wife
And she looked so pretty that September day
And her older brother cried as he gave her away
And the minister looked like he didn't know what to say
And then he spoke
You can't change a stubborn mind
You can't see the world if your eyes are blind
What does it matter anyway
In our darkest hour we're all just shades of grey

And when my grandmother held me For the very first time
She thanked God I looked like my daddy
And I never gave a damn just what she meant
But I knew she was a little too happy And now I see
You can't change a stubborn mind
You can't see the world if your eyes are blind
What does it matter anyway
In our darkest hour we're all just shades of grey
In our darkest hour we're all just shades of
Darkest hour we're all just Shades of grey
Hey, Hey, Hey
It doesn't matter anyway
Don't give a damn Don't give a damn
Don't give a damn
what they say
We're all just shades of grey
We're all just shades of grey
Shades of grey
