Groping in the Dark

lyrics

You're dying to leave this crazy country
I'm trying just to plant and raise a young tree
I'm feeling fine but you know I’d be feeling finer
if, just for one night, we’d step out of line, yeah

This ain't democracy, not hard to see:
steady behaving like an Exxon subsidiary
You gird your loins, I'll stick out my chest
and put that Constitution to the test

Let's go groping in the dark – you be my friend, I'll be your lover
Groping in the dark – we could discover one another
Groping in the dark – start a new life undercover
Hold you tight with a love that doesn’t smother

This ain't no republic, but I’m stayin’ here
You’re fed up and I can’t say I blame yer
Commercial interruptions, corruptions, cluster bombs are troublin’ yah
It’s enough to make a humble minister into a gunslinger

You're dying to leave this crazy country
I'm trying just to plant and raise a young tree
I'm feeling fine but you know I’d be feeling finer
if, just for one night, we’d step out of line, yeah

Let's go groping in the dark – you be my friend, I'll be your lover
Groping in the dark – (we can/could) discover one another
Groping in the dark – start a new life undercover
Hold me tight with a love that doesn’t smother
