Judee Sill – Dead Time Bummer Blues lyrics

I’m doing all this dead time
For the partaking of a plant
The earth says “help yourself”
But the law maintains I can’t

Dead time, whoa, dead time
Doing the dead time bummer blues

I never hurt anyone
Or caused any sorrow
My cellmate stole a Cadillac
And she’s going home tomorrow

Dead time, whoa, dead time
Doing the dead time bummer blues

Where is justice and liberty?
The law is blind, and cannot see
Where is justice and liberty?
Somebody help, please set me free!

Where is justice and liberty?
The judge was blind, and could not see
Where is justice and liberty?
Somebody help, please set me free!

It’s such a drag just knowing
That the outside is so near
Can’t help but ask this question:
“What the fuck am I doing here?”

Ooo, dead time, whoa, dead time
Doing the dead time bummer blues
Doing the dead time bummer blues
Doing the dead time, dead time bummer blues
