About "Don't Mind Me"

Song inspired by listening to Nick Cave and reading all the bad news in the newspapers. Enjoy.

Lyrics and Music by yours truly, Nick Plagakis

Damn it’s cold, as I exit this road
Time is now to intoxicate the soul
Up high, private jets fly
A man with a silk tie names his price
Riding south on a subway to you
Here I am and I don’t know what to do
Downtown, look all around
A beggar on a grate has met his fate

Don’t mind me
Don’t mind me
Don’t mind me when we fall
Don’t mind me at all

Love, truth twisted and screwed
Graffiti is on the Bloor line, and everyone is blind
Don’t you want to be with me?
I know I’m not a man of empathy
Skyscrapers rise, the politicians lie
Follow my posts ‘n get a momentary high
What happened to inquiring minds?
Socrates is fuming inside

Don’t mind me
Don’t mind me
Don’t mind me when we fall
Don’t mind me at all

I once read we are clouds and clocks
Life goes tick tock, tick tock
Adam and Eve had a master plan
But that devious snake had the upper hand
An AK 47 is front page news
Get me the Pope; I need a little hope
You and I got to make it through the night
Yet the molecules aren’t right
