Somebody said, "Where's the music goin'?"

Somebody said, "It's gone"

Somebody said, "With this bad wind a blowin'

Will the music keep a rolling on?"



I had to ask myself why it is makin' me

A minstrel man from cradle to grave?

Should there be somewhere else it could be takin' me

As it rolls on over like a wave?



Somebody said, "We got to find the words

There got to be an answer there"

Somebody said that you never get heard

'Cause nobody really cares"



You know that you can dance when the waves begin

Stop thinkin' as you're sinkin' below

Or do you take this chance to sail on the wind

When so many in the water choose to row



Some may curse the crippled

Some try to hide the hurt

Some may hate the hungry

But who's dyin' down there in the dirt



Somebody said, "Has the man enlightened us?"

Somebody said, "Who knows"

And the little boys said, "Well, I may be frightened

But the emperor has got no clothes"



Passion dies but the beat goes on

The conductor got us singin' his song

He's been feedin' these lies that we've been feasting upon

But we've been at the banquet too long



Somebody said, "Where are the dreamers?"

Somebody said, "Dead"

Somebody said, "Here comes the holy rollers

Tryin' to sell us all the screamers instead"



Since we were once deceived when we received the call

Now the cynics are the prophets of the day

And now the weak ones greater as the strong ones fall

And the rest of us have nothing to say



Some suffer in silent sadness

Some come to worship pain

Some just welcome madness

Till you can't come in from the rain



Somebody said, "Where's the music goin'?"

Somebody said, "It's gone"

Somebody said, "With this bad wind a blowin'

Will the music keep a rolling on?"



Somebody said

Somebody said

Somebody said
