Well, someone told me, tried to tell me It sounded backwards and upside down Someone told me something That really messed my head around
And I wondered sadly I sadly wondered Could we ever be on common ground?
Read and listen, I watch and listen It's like a train wreck and I can't turn away So many worlds colliding Everywhere, every day
People looking at the same things All the same things Them in conflicting ways
Well, if you see me walking down the avenue Call my name and I just stare a hole through you Please don't worry about me 'cause I'm really fine Sometimes I just get lost inside my mind
Someone told me, tried to tell me He was dressed and painted like a clown Someone told me something Tried to mess my head around Around and round
But I had a feeling he knew That his words were untrue We'll never be on common ground
Well, I know a man you can't own up to the things he's done He's got no sense of honor and never did have one Where would he be without a wall to hide behind? I'm glad I'm not the one living in his mind

New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
