Blue State

@ Craig Carothers / Bill Lloyd

The votes have been counted
The precincts are in
One side conceding
While another one wins

Banners and streamers
Both furled and unfurled
It's a brand new beginning
It's the end of the world

I'm in a blue, blue state
But not blue like the sky or the ocean
Yeah it's a sad sad place
And I don't like the view
But I'm just passin' through
This blue, blue state

The party is over
And all bets are off
Hope is abandoned
And paradise lost

There's no silver lining
No, I only see red
Out across the horizon
As darkness descends

Though it's just temporary
It's looks kinda’ scary from here
Stormy weather
That may not get better for years

Yeah it's a sad sad place
And I don't like the view
But I'm just passin' through
This blue, blue state
