lyrics

The Last couple of months
I just ain't felt right
the news got me down
and keeps me up at night
my folks back home say
things will be fine
but Ma, I cant get my head on right

With people dying
are we just lying to ourselves
like we're not the problem
no, it must be somebody else.

The man I love
looks at me left-ways
he sees me choking
through emotional haze
but I don't know
what else to do
so we take ourselves out
and we drink our blues

While people are dying
we just keep on lying to ourselves
like we're not the problem
no, it must be somebody else.

Here we go
who was it this week
who was it today

You cant unknow a thing that's true
like, when you're broke
the bills are due
and when you're woke
the light will wreck your darkness
through and through

So, if people are dying
we cant keep on lying to ourselves
like we're not the problem
no, it must be somebody else

Yeah, if people are dying
we cant keep on lying to ourselves
like we're not the problem
but it can't be nobody else.
