lyrics

COULDN'T BE CLEARER

What the hell is wrong with the sky today?
The clouds are all gone but the shadows have stayed
One good gust of wind
It would all blow away
And never be seen again

At times like these we all take solace in
Who we've done and where we've been
It no longer matters if you lose or win
As long as you still play the game

And the difference is hard to spot
Between who you are and what you've got
Because once you start it's hard to stop
But it couldn't be clearer to me

And what the hell is wrong with my head today?
Too many thoughts and nothing to say
To simple suspicions
I'm easy prey
And I'll never feel clean again

And the difference is hard to spot
Between who you are and who you're not
Because once you start it's hard to stop
But it couldn't be clearer to me

And the consequence is you’ll never know
Whether what you do affects where you'll go
Up to heaven high
Or straight down to hell below

Whispers of the high and divine surround you
Everything you’ve lost you will now regain
Everyone you’ve loved wraps their arms around you
You will feel no sorrow no spite no pain

And what the hell is wrong with the sky today
The clouds have moved on but the shadows remain
The smallest breeze
It'll all blow away
And I’ll never be clean again

And from when you’re born ‘til the day you drop
You are slave and servant to whatever you’ve got
‘Cause once you start it’s so hard to stop
And it couldn’t be clearer to me

If you wish they still made albums like they did in the 1970s, you're gonna love the Sad Truth - a wry and tuneful mashup of Steely Dan, ELO, Supertramp, and every other band you love from Back In The Day.
