Oh, it's easy, stop moaning. Here are two sets of lyrics. What do they have in common?
I hear colours black and red
I see sounds that fill my head
I'll never read those books again
I could make a mark if it weren't so dark
I could be replaced by any bright spark
Google is cheating.
The answer is not 'they're both by English bands', or anything silly like that.
The above lyrics are copyrighted, and not by me. I may not get around to acknowledging the winner right away due to certain circumstances beyond my control (a firewall, for one, which allows me to post to Blogger *ahem* at lunchtime, but paradoxically not see any Blogger websites, nor comment on them). There is no prize. E&OE. There are multiple possible answers (see 'Hint', above) but I'm only looking for one specific one. Etc. etc. etc.
