Blue Tip

Album: Move Like This (2011)
  • You believe in anything
    They tell you how to think
    The simpletons all circle
    In the raging roller rink

    I'm trading in the alley
    I'm booking up a storm
    Forget about reality
    'Cause nothing is the norm
    Yeah yeah

    So what can you do
    You say
    They owe me a few yeah
    Blue tip of your cue yeah

    You got that look on your face
    You'd like to be in the race
    You cannot hide your disgrace
    You leave without a trace

    All set to weary your heartland
    Black and white TV
    Stroking all the gun heads
    Into the ninth degree

    You here the screamers coming
    They clamor in disguise
    You think that you'd be running
    To the other side
    Yeah yeah

    So what can you do
    You say
    They owe me a few yeah
    Blue tip of your cue yeah

    You got that look on your face
    You'd like to be in the race
    You cannot hide your disgrace
    Can't fill an empty space

    (Ah)
    You stupefy the thinkers
    (Ah)
    You're hugging all the flakes
    (Ah)
    And all the things you think are true
    (Ah)
    Only mystify the fakes

    Well keep your hat on backwards
    And keep your lips tucked in
    The world is full of quackers
    And belly button rings

    I know you'd like to be immune
    To the things they say
    You're hung up on your heroes
    And upon the beast you pray
    Yeah hey

    What can you do
    You say
    Well they owe me a few yeah
    Blue (blue) tip of your cue yeah

    You got that look on your face
    You'd like to be in the race
    You cannot hide your disgrace
    You leave without a trace

    You got a look on your face
    You'd like to be in the race
    You cannot hide your disgrace
    You leave a bitter taste Writer/s: Ric Ocasek
