Raine Maida

21st Century Blues


I just don't know what to do
I drank poison and it tasted like you
It's getting to me, these 21st century blues

There's a bird on my window sill
He's been watching and laughing at our ills
I should follow him south a vacation is long overdue

Well I crawl but I don't want you to save me
I looked up and there's no clouds but it's raining
I have everything I need to get through

See I get lost in this life
I'm unbalanced, I've always been uptight
My doctor told me a bottle of wine will keep you true

There's a knock on my door so it must be time
There's a note on the table for you
There's a war of my own that I have to fight
And I can't afford to lose
