Switchfoot – The Blues lyrics

Is this the New Year
Or just another night?
Is this the new fear
Or just another fright?
Is this the new tear
Or just another desperation?

Is this the finger
Or just another fist?
Is this the kingdom
Or just a hit-and-miss?
A misdirection, most of all this Desperation

Is this what they call freedom?
Is this what you call pain?
Is this what they call discontented Fame?
It'll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in

I'm singing this one
Like a broken piece of glass
For broken arms and broken noses
In the back
Is this the New Year
Or just another desperation?

You push until you're shoving
You bend until you break
Do you stand on the broken field
Where your fathers lay?
It'll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in

There's nothing here worth saving
There's no one here at all
Is there any net left
That could break our fall?
It'll be a day like this one
When the sky falls down
When the hungry and poor
And deserted are found

Are you discontented?
Have you been pushing hard?
Have you been throwing down
This broken house of cards?
It'll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in

Is there nothing left now?
Nothing left to sing?
Are there any left
Who haven't kissed the enemy?
Is this the New Year
Or just another desperation?
Yeah, yeah

Does justice ever find you?
Do the wicked never lose?
Is there any other song
To sing besides these blues?
And nothing is ok
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
