Even Cross Eyed Snake Oil Salesmen Sometimes Get The Blues

Even Cross Eyed Snake Oil Salesmen
Sometimes Get The Blues

Could be illusion, or maybe it’s real
In the back of your mind it’s not what you feel
Deliberate confusion, fail by design
An infinite jest or a storm warning sign

Live through the moment, thrill to give in
Double or nothing, you lose if you win

Even Cross Eyed Snake Oil Salesmen
Sometimes Get The Blues (x2)

Prisoner’s dilemma, zero sum deal
Glance in the mirror and you’re under the wheel
Strike out on balance, shift out of time
Labor distortion for a dollar and a dime

The wages of progress, so much for so few
But the deal of a lifetime is waiting for you
On the stages of history,  they’ll mark what we do
When stories are told, none will be true

Middle of nowhere, remains to be seen
Double or nothing, lay it down on a dream

Even Cross Eyed Snake Oil Salesmen
Sometimes Get The Blues (x2)

Risk is reward, a means and an end
We’re all standing in line with our psychotic friends
On the magnetic river, micro trade winds blow
Middle ground disappears, there’s nowhere to go

Power times privilege, who would lead us astray?
Count all the toys at the end of the day
Your none structured future, gravitational words
Logic is tortured, extreme and absurd

Caught on a floodplain, wholesale fear
Double or nothing, the reasons are clear

Even Cross Eyed Snake Oil Salesmen
Sometimes Get The Blues (x2)

Trust no one at all, trust two even less
We’ll externalize costs for this unholy mess
Let cities lie fallow, in the heart of ambition
Til we market a cure for the human condition

Steal from the moment, cast on the wind
Double or nothing, you lose if you win

Even Cross Eyed Snake Oil Salesmen
Sometimes Get The Blues (x4)
