Changing Times, Stubborn Minds

(The Existential Transitional Blues)

T. E. Gray May 2017 (Rev Nov 2017)

D - C - G - D


Uh oh -- I’m really feelin’ down

Please tell me it’ll be OK


Uh oh -- I’m lookin’ all around

Ain’t nobody sayin’ hoo-ray


Tell me, who’s spinning this tale?

-- we got ourselves a really big fail


Well now, we’ve come so many miles

With more than our share of denial


I know, we’re hangin’ by a thread…

so easily buried in this dread

With a very long road ahead

And echoes of hopes now dead


=========================

CHANGING TIMES…. STUBBORN MINDS;

THE SPIRIT IS KIND; MAY IT HELP ME TO FIND

A PEACE THAT WON’T KEEP US CONFINED

=========================


Uh oh -- our ship has run aground

I guess it’s finally time to pray


Uh oh -- big promises abound

Some truth was lost along the way

------------------------------------------


Tell me, can we connect… if

we don’t even try for respect?


Well now, what’s it gonna be?

Seeds of anger or humanity?


I know, we need a new goal…

Find the sunshine that makes us grow

Say goodbye to the status quo

Set a course away from the shoals


=========================

CHANGING TIMES…. STUBBORN MINDS;

THE SPIRIT IS KIND; MAY IT HELP ME TO FIND

A JOY THAT WON’T LEAVE US BEHIND

=========================


Uh oh -- my head is spinnin’ ‘round

I gotta get outta this maze!


Uh oh -- there’s nothin’ to be found

In the ruins of those ugly days


Tell me --where do we start?

Are we coming together; or fallin’ apart?


Well now --we’ve been here before

Only our hearts can win this war


I know, and I think you’d agree

There were things we could never see

And some that weren’t meant to be

As we wonder who gets to be free


=========================

CHANGING TIMES…. STUBBORN MINDS;

THE SPIRIT IS KIND; MAY IT HELP ME TO FIND

A PEACE THAT WON’T KEEP US CONFINED

A JOY THAT WON’T LEAVE US BEHIND

A LOVE THAT WON’T ONLY BE MINE

=========================
