Isolation Blues
Lyrics
Isolation Blues
I heard it on the news
The working class loose
I see the blues in you eyes my friend
As you isolate and try to mend
Your mind

Isolation Blues
You know what you feel
And what you see and hear
Lessons of hope fill your mind
With an American Dream you can't find
Oh my! Oh my!

Wealth in the hands of few
Newsmen give hardly a clue
Congressmen's lips are sealed
As the country tries to heal

Isolation Blues
Whatever can you do?
Whatever can you do?

Isolation Blues
You just want a job
Some food, a home
But tax and bill collectors combined
Would take more if they could find
Your soul! You'd still owe!

Isolation Blues
You're tired and afraid
With no place to go
You try so hard but it's hard to understand
Why you can't win at what power can band
Understand?

Wealth in the hands of few
Newsmen give hardly a clue
Congressmen's lips are sealed
As the country tries to heal

Isolation Blues
Whatever can you do?
Isolation Blues
Whatever can you do?
