Corb Lund - Expectation And The Blues

rate me

Well you know I over-intellectualize<br />

When really what I'm feelin's a lot of shit inside<br />

But Jesus it's hard to self-actualize<br />

When you can't stop thinkin' about going home<br />

You can't really ever go home like they say<br />

And if you do it's all messed up anyway<br />

And besides the shit they tried to tell you back there<br />

Gets in your hair and messes up your head everyday<br />

<br />

CHORUS:<br />

And that's why I'm here to tell you that there's nothin' left to lose<br />

Except for maybe all the expectations and the blues<br />

And I've come to tell you that you've nothin' left to prove<br />

Most especially not to expectation and the blues<br />

<br />

Well who's got it right, and who thinks he's wrong?<br />

We movin' too fast, or are we takin' too long<br />

To find some common values that I can't seem to locate<br />

No matter where I end up for the week?<br />

<br />

It's a pretty tough call when all you can see<br />

Is numbing government when you look at the TV<br />

And the big business Satan<br />

And cops that would love to take your head off if they had half a chance<br />

<br />

CHORUS<br />

<br />

My Mormon cousins think I'm nuts, but they're out of touch<br />

And today I got my finger on the pulse of the monster<br />

Not the biblical stuff or the TV bullshit<br />

But somethin' deep and real, global and truly ugly<br />

<br />

So as I walk out into the sunlight to face the music<br />

And leave the casino behind me in the dark<br />

I know in my heart the things we see around us in the world today are a mess<br />

But it's not all our fault, so hey...<br />
