Hybrid Blues

This song is by Skyclad and appears on the album A Semblance Of Normality (2004).

You think you've come so far?
You think you learned along the way?
You're better off by far
Than where you stood just yesterday?
You say you've got the scars
There's nothing left to say

You've got to look beyond
Go make some ripples on your pond
We are the things we sing
All wrapped up with bows and strings
You think you're everything?
Accept the sense of substance over style

And take away the hype
Take away the sad affairs
Listen to your lies
Can't you see it now there's no-one there?

We are the things we choose
Come walk a mile in this man's shoes
And if you're still confused
Go learn to sing some hybrid blues
What have you got to lose
Except your sense of ignorance and pride?

And take away the hype
Take away the sad affairs
Listen to your lies
Can't you see it now there's no-one there?
I can't tell you any more
I can't tell you what to think or say
Take away the hard lines
Can't you see it any other way?

But I still don't hear that inherent cry
From "Dear old Stockholm" to the "My-Oh-My"
Make it
Lose it
Make it
Lose it

I still don't hear that plaintive call
From the sacred mountains to the wailing wall
Faithless
Shameless
Faceless
Hopeless

Now I loved me a woman, don't mean a thing
I loved me a woman, gave her everything
I got stones in my pathway
And I railed at the moon
There's a light at your doorway
Guess who spoke too soon?
Singing:
"Take me
Use me
Love me"

But I still don't hear that primal scream
Of a rich man's nightmare or a poor boy's dream
Have I lived too long?
Have I lived at all?
If life's a journey, come on
Catch me when I fall

And you're lying there, like the bride stripped bare
In the virtual madness, in my my dark despair
Singing:
"Hurt me
Hate me
Hear me
Help me"

Is this hybrid offspring just a high-class whore
Or a pale young virgin and wild old boar?
Pointless (I got the money)
Tasteless (I got the money)
Thoughtless
