​Why Do We Have To Hurt Our Heads

This song is by Murray Head and appears on the album Nigel Lived (1973).

Why do we have to play those games?
Give us the truth and put the bad to shame
Never quite sure where to lay the blame
Is the outside unreal, or is it in you mind?
Is the inside surreal and making us blind?
To you lord - won't you set us free

Why do we have to hurt our heads?
Hearing those voices, wishing we were dead
Why don't we let it out instead?
Protection from the outside, till they leave you in peace
Seclusion from the inside till you christen the beast
Help us lord!
I think we're going blind.
While cloak and dagger experts prepare for the feast?
Why do we have to play those games?
Give us the truth and put the bad to shame
Never quite sure where to lay the blame
Is the outside unreal is it in your mind?
Is the inside surreal and making us blind
To you lord - I think we're going blind
It's an empty world alone - alone in our heads why can't we see?
