Totem And Taboo

This song is by Hugh Cornwell and appears on the album Totem & Taboo (2015).

Every day I wake up feeling better
Than I ever did the night before
Open up the mailbox there's a letter
When it's read I'm up and out the door
Walking down the street I'm in no hurry
See a lot of people on the run
I ain't got a problem with your anger
Hope you get around to having fun

What's totem for me
Is taboo for you
Just listen to me
Am I getting through

Once I was a rebel with the answer
Shoved it in your mouth without a spoon
Then I realized there ain't no answer
Just a lot of problems in the room
Took a pill and dropped right off the radar
Thought I could buy peace and greener grass
Think I've woken up two decades later
Just to fall again upon my ass

What's totem for me
Is taboo for you
Just listen to me
Am I getting through

What's totem for me
Is taboo for you
Just listen to me
Am I getting through

There's a lot of language in between us
I'd really like to know what makes you tick
Wish I had the secret to happiness
I could deal it out and heal the sick
As it is I'll have to keep on walking
Blame it all on God or just pretend
Guess I'll let your signals do the talking
Fingers crossed I'll get there in the end

What's totem for me
Is taboo for you
Just listen to me
Am I getting through

What's totem for me
Is taboo for you
Just listen to me
Am I getting through
