Downhearted

Downhearted

Jackie Greene

Listen people what I say
I hate to come to you this way
But there's something going on in the world today
And I don't know what I can say, I'm downhearted
Downhearted

Now I don't think there can be one blame
You can't point the finger or speak a name
There's too much at stake, there?s too much to lose
And it's getting to the end of a burning fuse
I'm downhearted

So tell me am I out of line?
Am I wrong, or am I blind?
Is there any meaningful thing to say?

The blades of war are glistening,
But there's nobody listening
To the sound of the voices, hear them make their noise
The machine is too strong, gonna be destroyed
I'm downhearted

This place is crazy, it weighs too much
I'm lost inside the grid, I'm out of touch
Tell me, is there anything that I can do?

Blue policeman with a silver gun
Shot a red-defender and his only son
Ask somebody and they might say:
"Be straight laced, white faced and look the other way"
I'm downhearted
