Society's Blues

SOCIETY’S BLUES

Well I wonder why all is not as it seems,
Why life will turn hopes into fallible dreams.
Why people must feign their attitude,
Their name, their age, their thoughts, their mood.
Why the female is shy, and the male is strong,
And when reversed- why it will be seen as wrong.

To know, to know, is what we seek,
Please let the tongue of wisdom speak.
To know, to know, the truth to find,
Please educate my humble mind.
To know, to know, it is my goal,
Please lift and love my aching soul,
Yeah.

Why war is politics and peace is a freak,
Why the strong aren’t secure till they knock down the weak.
How the soul of a calf is worth less than it’s hide,
How people can suffer just to preserve pride.
Of God we’re uncertain, yet his word is law,
Yet obvious fact we choose to ignore.

To know, to know, is what we seek,
Please let the tongue of wisdom speak.
To know, to know, the truth to find,
Please educate my humble mind.
To know, to know, it is my goal,
Please lift and love my aching soul,
Yeah.

(Instrumental)

A promise you’ll break, an emotion you’ll knife,
Yet possessions and jewels are insured for life.
I wonder why people will live with a lie,
Yet truth will cause them to wither and die.
Why art is expressing oneself, but expression,
Of oneself, is not art, but seen as confession.

To know, to know, is what we seek,
Please let the tongue of wisdom speak.
To know, to know, the truth to find,
Please educate my humble mind.
To know, to know, it is my goal,
Please lift and love my aching soul,
Yeah.

Why to love will cause pain, but to hurt satisfaction,
Why weakness is showing our natural reaction.
Once burned is twice shy, yet history will repeat,
An impression lasts less in success than defeat.
To wonder is human, to seek is to grow,
But strength and elation will come when you know.

To know, to know, is what we seek,
Please let the tongue of wisdom speak.
To know, to know, the truth to find,
Please educate my humble mind.
To know, to know, it is my goal,
Please lift and love my aching soul….
