​Bad Times

This song is by Icon and appears on the album Right Between The Eyes (1989).

Yeah
Ooh!

Hey, little girl, so you ripped your dress today
And you don't know what your mama's going to say
You've got catechism after school
You'll live by every golden rule
Everybody's got their dues to pay
But the preacher ain't been doing what he's preaching
Little girl says "Hey, you watch where you've been reaching"

Living in bad times
Things were better yesterday
Living in bad times
Gotta find a better way
And I think it's time
That we all made that change, oh, yeah

Blind man sitting on the corner day and night
Put a dime in his cup, it'll make you feel alright
He's got stories 'bout them good ole days
The same ole story different way
Least he knows what makes him see the light
And the homeless try to upgrade their position
But the money goes to the cheating politician

Living in bad times
Things were better yesterday
Living in bad times
Gotta find my better way
And I think it's time
That we all made that change
I know when it is trouble every day

Living in bad times
Living in bad times
Living in bad times
Live, live, living in bad times

Living in bad times
Things were better yesterday
Living in bad times
Living in bad times
Gotta find a better way
Living in bad times

I know I've got to find another way
I feel that it is trouble every day
Whoa, yeah

Live, live, living in bad times
Live, live, living in bad times
Live, live, living in bad times
