They Got The Blues Inside Them

lyrics

She has got no questions
About what is right for her
And he has got no answers
Cos he lives inside of her

Both of them got something
From the things they're going thru
It may be a mystery to you
But then, you're a mystery too

Peoples lives are strange
And can't be understood
Sometimes I try to help them out
But it don't do no good

They got that private suffering
They feel it in the dark
They keep on circling the block
And they can't find a place to park

CHORUS
They got the blues inside them
But no music's coming out
They got that crazy old time angry blues
That makes them twist and shout
They got the blues that horrid blue
And blues that won't turn black
Well they say the white man's crazy
I ain't arguing with that

All the un-reality lives go by
On this reality TV
They talk about their fuzzy pets
And what they like to eat
They pick their noses on camera
While they're singing out of tune
Just tell them "Ricky sent ya"
And they will offer you the moon

They're going nuts in Florida
About feeding tubes and WHAT?
They're sleeping in their lounge chairs
Like a junkie on the nod????
They listen to that phoney news
That tells them what to think
Their minds are in the closet
And their hearts are on the brink

CHORUS
They got the blues inside them
But no music's coming out
They got that crazy old time angry blues
That makes them twist and shout
They got the blues that haunted blue
And blues that won't turn black
Well they say the white man's crazy
I ain't arguing with that

It's another kind of blues harp
That bought Hadey to her knees
And the ones that make it happen
Also run the charities
They're going to make a fortune
From the rock god's telethon
Pushing his Clinton
They just keep on keeping on

I don't want to be a cynic
You know I want to believe
But monsters walk among us
With a dagger up their sleeve
They murder and they torture folk
Across the Middle East
The Bankers finance all of that
To feed the bodies to the beast

CHORUS
They got the blues inside them
But no music's coming out
They got that old time angry blues
That makes them twist and shout
They got the blues that haunted blue
And blues that won't turn black
Well they say the white man's crazy
I ain't arguing with that
