hey what's your problem? 
you make me so uneasy. 
have you ever thought about it. 
everything's so black and white to you. 
do you wake up every morning 
cursing the colour of your skin, 
there's nothing you can do about it. 
i got to stop running into you. 
we had a conversation 
but you were talking to yourself. 
i just happened to be standing there, 
i could've been a fishbowl on a shelf 
and it's a crying shame 
cause i've done all i can do. 
you're living in an ancient fortress, 
you're letting nothing new come through. 
hey mister bluesky, 
you're looking grey, 
your face is flushed but it's never red. 
there's a shadow hanging over your head. 
you could be a buddha baby 
to be free where you belong, 
there's never any misconceptions 
when everything you know is wrong 
and it's a brave new world, 
it's a carousel come true. 
that's why it gets me down 
sitting here listening to you. 
hey mister bluesky 
you're looking grey 
your face is flushed but it's never red. 
there's a shadow hanging over your head.

    General Commentto me, this song is about being sick and tired of being in a certain relationship... your partner doesnt wanna change and you want to get out of the relationship. id love to hear what some other people think of what the song means.

    General Commentalmost sounds like his/her partner is facing a problem almost discrimination, and he/she is is trying to make him/her feel better.
