    The blues we speak
    The blues we see
    The blue beads of sweat
    upon my back

    Once upon a time
    When the work had no cost
    Just the sight of blue

    Sometimes grey
    Noticing something totally different
    Then indigo

    As we are more black
    As our thoughts of forgiveness
    is now pondered
    The blacks are given for recovery

    Darker the berry sweeter the juice
    The thought of being made
    To support

    Sleeping
    On our revival methods
    Now, who we choose to catch
    these blues with is a process
    carried out in your dream
    state of union.

    The Egyptians also manufactured a material which we often call Egyptian faience or glazed composition. Faience consists of a quartz core with a glazed surface. The material could be modeled and molded, and because it was inexpensive, this material was used to mass produce many small objects such as statuettes, amulets, rings and ear studs. It was often made to imitate stone and used as a substitute for that material.

    The color of the glaze depended on additions to the basic mixture. One of the most common colors was a blue-green, imitating turquoise, which was associated with the important goddess, Hathor, sometimes known as the "Lady of Turquoise". Also, the ancient Egyptian word for faience was tjehenet, from the root tjehen, meaning "to dazzle or gleam". Hence, the material also had a solar symbolism.

    Soft stone, whether cut in place such as a rock cut tomb, or carved into blocks as in free standing temples, was usually covered by plaster prior to being decorated. Paint was sometimes also applied to hard stone, but often it was left visible for its symbolism. Hence, black stone such as granodiorite was representative of the life giving black silt left by theNile inundation, thus symbolizing new life, resurrection and the resurrected god of he dead,Osiris. Red, brown, yellow and gold were associated with the sun, and so stones of those colors, such as red and brown quartzite and red granite, symbolized the sun. Green stone referred to fresh, growing vegetation, new life, resurrection and Osiris as well, who sometimes appears with black skin and sometimes green.
