This song is by Flashlight Brown and appears on the album Blindsided (1996) and on the album Flashlight (1997).

Now, somebody is out there on a streetcorner
Preaching about the evils of the people who are voting on the right
While I'm working in a kitchen chopping parsley and lettuce
And washing up the dishes till the end of the night
When I stumble down the streetcorner
To buy myself a pony full of paint thinner, bourbon, a girly mag or two
And blah blah blah goes the man on the corner
And I'll never understand how it relates to me and you
What do I know?
What do I care?
If I close my eyes
I'm blindsided
In a barroom the TV is flashing like a fire
And warning of the future like a prophet from the past
The radio is blaring like a siren in the corner
And telling you to prepare for an all out attack
The newspaper reads like a page from the bible
And tells us a tale of impending doom
But blind, deaf and dumb are we
And all we really care about is
Who can drink the most before he goes to the bathroom
