The sun ain't shinin' bright
Nothin' but clouds in sight
And all it's been is rainin'
Every day and night
The noise I hear is white
Like broken televisions
Don't remember the beginnin'
Don't think I'ma see the endin'
Yo, it's just the way I'm livin'
I built myself a prison
And now I can't escape from it
Trapped by my own decisions
I've become a co-defendant
Who's also codependent
On a wide array of stimulants
That's way too long to mention
I'm runnin' down the avenue
The screamin' sounds and sirens
Always movin' in slow motion
And surrounded by the violence
And we're startin' to get silent
You start to get the picture?
If you don't like the taste of life
Pour in a little liquor

Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why
Why you had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong (where did we go wrong)?
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why
Why you had to hide away for so long
Where did we go wrong (where did we go wrong)?

Hey, with the pretty face
Looks like it's just you and I
Welcome to the human race
Where we all fake and scared to die
Another day, another dime
I'm fallin' in and out of time
These chills is runnin' down my spine
It's lookin' awfully gray outside
Another shitty day outside
I wonder if I face it
Or will I get my doctor bag
And search for the replacement
For this naggin' feelin' that I have
I'm stuck inside the Matrix
And the world around me's
Engineered to make me more complacent
And so I see myself
Alone again, locked in the basement
Drinkin' like Lief in Las Vegas
I don't think I'm gonna make it
With who may I negotiate
I think I might surrender
If this bitch was worth fightin' for
I think I might defend her
But I ain't cutting out my face
Like I'm the great pretender
I'm so tired of these lies
Of these games, of this weather

Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why
Why you had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong (where did we go wrong)?
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why
Why you had to hide away for so long
Where did we go wrong (where did we go wrong)?

Soon as I'm feelin' right
Now here comes Mr. Night
He's slowly creepin' over (hi!)
With his hands on both my shoulders
Covers me with his blanket
He gives me peace of mind
And soon enough, yo, I don't care
Wanna see the sky
I'm comfortably numb
Life's a bitch and then you die
No more questions askin' why
No reasons for me to cry
Just reasons for gettin' high
And elevate my level
Walkin' on a rocky shore
Just me, myself, the Devil
And the sound of bass and treble
That be pumpin' in my mental
NY confidential
I'm detectin' what's essential
It's inconsequential
What be flowin' through my brain
All I can say is every day
Is washed out by the rain
And I awake to find
The place I'm in is still the same
As I stumble to the window
To see that the clouds remain (so does the pain)

Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why
Why you had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong (where did we go wrong)?
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why
Why you had to hide away for so long
Where did we go wrong (where did we go wrong)?

Hey there, Mr. Blue Sky
So pleased to be with you (sky)
Look around, see what you do (blue)
Everybody's happy too
