    Taken right off the back of the DVD case:

    Academy Award winner Robet Duvall and Sean Penn star in a film that "captures the vivid mark that gang life has left upon Los Angeles" (The New York Times). Directed by the lengedary Dennis Hopper and based on a compelling story by Michael Schiffer and Richard DiLello, Colors is "grimy, hard-edged, heart-thumping action" (Movieline)!

    Seasoned street cop Bob Hodges (Duvall) and his new, young know-it-all partner Danny McGavin (Penn) are forced to work together in the L.A.P.D.'s renowned C.R.A.S.H. anti-gang unit. Together they set out to investigate a murder between two rival gangs. Hated and hunted by both sides, the cops get trapped in the middle of a turf war. With nowhere to turn, they are ambushed, doubel-crossed and shot at in a take-no-prisoners street battle. As the violence escalates, these two diametrically opposed men must come to terms with one important fact - to stay alive they must come together!

    Calm Like A Bomb...

    I am a nightmare walking, psychopath talking
    king of my jungle just a gangster stalking
    Living life like a firecracker quick is my fuse
    Then dead as a deathpack by the colors I choose,
    red or blue; cuz or blood, it just don't matta

    All the suckas die when my shotgun scatters
    The gangs of L.A. will never die....just multiply


    You see they hit us then we hit them
    then we hit them and they hit us, man
    It's like a war, ya know what I'm sayin
    people dont even understand


    They don't even know what they dealing with
    you wanna get ridda the gangs its gonna take alot of work
    but people don't understand the size of this
    this is no joke man this is real


    you don't know me, fool
    you disown me, cool
    I don't need your assistance, social persistance
    any problem I got I just put my fist in

    My life is violent, but violent is life
    peace is a dream, reality is a nightmare
    my colors my honour my colors my all
    with my colors upon me one soldier stands tall
    tell me what have you left me, what have I got ?
    last night in cold blood my young brother got shot
    my homie got jacked
    my mother's on crack
    my sister can't work cause her arms show trax

    Madness insanity livin' profanity
    then some punk claimin they understandin me
    give me a break, what world do you live in?
    death is my set, guess my religion


    Yo my brother was a gang banger
    and all my homeboys bang
    I don't know why I do it man, I just do it
    I never had much of nuffin man
    Look at you man, you've got everything going for yourself
    and I ain't got nuffin man, I've got nuffin
    I'm living in the ghetto man
    just look at me man, look at me


    My pants are saggin braided hair
    suckers stare but I don't care
    my game ain't knowelgde my game's fear
    I've no remorse so squares beware

    But my true mission is just revenge
    you ain't in my set, you ain't my friend
    wear the wrong color your life could end
    homocides my favorite binge


    Listen to me man
    no matter whatcha do don't ever join a gang
    you don't wanna be in it man,
    You're just gonna end up in a mix of dead freinds and time in jail I
    know, if
    I had a chance like you,
    I would never be in a gang man
    but I didn't have a chance
    You know I wish i did


    I'll just walk like a giant po-lice defiant
    you'll say to stop but I'll say that I cant
    my gangs my family its all that I have
    I'm a star, on the wall is my autograph

    You don't like it, so you know where you can go
    cause the streets are my stage and terror's my show
    phsyco-analize tried diognising me wise
    It wasn't your brother that brutally died

    But it was mine, so let me define
    my territory don't cross the line
    Don't try to act crazy
    cause the shit dont phase me
    if you died like a punk
    it wouldn'ta amaze me
    Cuz, my color is death
    though we all want peace
    but our war won't end,
    til all wars seize.


    See the wars of the street gangs will always get to me man
    But I don't wanna be down with this situation man
    but I'm in here, if I had something betta to do I think I'd do it but
    right
    now I'm just down here boye
    I'm trying to get money cause I'm smart
    I'm gunna get paid while I'm out here
    I'm gunna get that paper, ya know what I'm saying
    If I had a chance like you,
    maybe I would be in school
    but I'm not, I'm out here living day to day surviving
    and I'm willing to die for my colors

    I think there are a couple of them here, though admittedly not very active. Maybe they're at yoga class or eating bean sprout sammiches with soy "cream cheese" flavored spread.
