Land of the Grey

This song is by Ginny Owens and appears on the album Without Condition (1999).

There's a young Mother with three children
Got a stable income and a faithful husband, too
She's searchin' for her life's meanin'
So she says to her shrink, "I'm leavin' home soon!"
Just decided that she couldn't take it anymore
Didn't look back, she just snuck out the back door-

What is wrong with this picture?
We applaud this behavior
Admire how she breaks away-
Oh, it's so clearly cloudy, in the land of the grey

There's a young Senator
Gifted politician
So consumed by pursuing his career
Use to care about what the people wanted
But now he's learned how to say what they wanna hear
A million lies and scandals bear his name
But you'll never see him hide his face in shame-

What is wrong with this picture?
We applaud this behavior
He's a hero if he makes mistakes-
Oh, it's so clearly cloudy in the land of the grey

What's wrong? What's right? Absolute confusion
What's black? What's white? Everything looks hazy
Such scenarios bring me to only one conclusion-
Maybe we've all gone crazy

Three little kids are prayin' Mama comes home
And a little town feels violated and betrayed
Meanwhile, two very unhappy people
Try to excuse the messes that they've made
But you'll never hear it stated quite that way
We can't handle it here in the land of the grey
