RICK SPRINGFIELD lyrics - Blues For The Disillusioned

"Blues For The Disillusioned"

Blues for the Disillusioned
There will be no atonement
Me in my confusion
And in a careless moment
I fell in love with everything
That caused me so much pain
Send a message to my father
Signed it with a mark of cain
I waited for an answer
Like I'd seen the love you do
I teetered like a dancer
Trembled like an ingenue
I never got a message
I never got a call
I crawled out of the wreckage
Nobody there to catch my fall

I know that it was written
Your prayers would all be heard
John 16: 24
It says it word for word
Ask and you shall receive
Your joy will be complete
They set you up for victory
Then they had you your defeat
Come on down to my place
I got Playstation 99
Nixon hangs with Elvis
Sleeping Beauty sleeps with Frankenstein
Saint Joan of Arc and Lenny
Have become the best of friends
Bin Laden wears a sign that says
True love never ends

Blues for the Disillusioned
I know how you all breathe
I was there at the beginning
With Adam and with Eve
And God's manipulation was
Was partisan at best
Although it was a worst result
To think that you're all blessed
You've been living under false decrees
I guess you get that now
There's really no such thing as
All that heaven will allow
I wanna be your angel
I wanna be your king
If you wanna be my girl
You gotta sacrifice everything

You keep on drilling
You can't cut through his firewall
Your spirit is willing
Savor all your drugs and alcohol
Blues for the blighted
Welcome to the wallflower social club
Everyone's invited
Sai Baba's here with Beezlebub
I know you thought that life was fair
And you believed the creed
God doesn't give you what you want
Only what you need
I think that's pretty dubious
To say the very least
So I tell him that the 13 million
Kids there in the middle east
All my father's promises
Were made when he was high
You're kicked out of the nest
And now it's time for you to fly

Blues for the disillusioned
Blues for the disillusioned
Blues for the disillusioned
Blues for the disillusioned

Blues for the disillusioned
Blues for the disillusioned
