"Blue Tip" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
You believe in anything
They tell you how to think
The simpletons all circle
In the raging roller rink

I'm trading in the alley
I'm booking up a storm
Forget about reality
'Cause nothing is the norm
Yeah yeah

So what can you do
You say
They owe me a few yeah
Blue tip of your cue yeah

You got that look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
You leave without a trace

All set to weary your heartland
Black and white TV
Stroking all the gun heads
Into the ninth degree

You here the screamers coming
They clamor in disguise
You think that you'd be running
To the other side
Yeah yeah

So what can you do
You say
They owe me a few yeah
Blue tip of your cue yeah

You got that look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
Can't fill an empty space

(Ah)
You stupefy the thinkers
(Ah)
You're hugging all the flakes
(Ah)
And all the things you think are true
(Ah)
Only mystify the fakes

Well keep your hat on backwards
And keep your lips tucked in
The world is full of quackers
And belly button rings

I know you'd like to be immune
To the things they say
You're hung up on your heroes
And upon the beast you pray
Yeah hey

What can you do
You say
Well they owe me a few yeah
Blue (blue) tip of your cue yeah

You got that look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
You leave without a trace

You got a look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
You leave a bitter taste

    General CommentI sense this song has to do with war: joining on the bandwagon (i.e. watching Fox News), believing the garbage fed to the masses, and what is trendy to believe. Perhaps the person this song is addressed to is smart, yet this person does not want to be involved or help solve the problem.

    I'd love to hear other interpretations, or comments from the artist! (I wish!)

    General CommentAn overall theme that runs through The Cars seventh album, Move Like This, is that of lead vocalist and songwriter Ric Ocasek coming to terms with his lot in life and looking into the future. He explained to Spinner UK: "It was a lot of 'What's going on in the world today?' Maybe even a little sarcastic, weird look at it. It was just what I was feeling these days, this year. Just a bit about the times."

    This song reflects the theme. Said Ocasek to Spinner: "The world's full of quackers. There's a lot of quackers out there. 'Stroking all the gunheads,' 'Stupefying the thinkers.' It's like a big ball of junk mail."
