I See Red Lyrics

Artist: Gerry Rafferty
Album: On a Wing and a Prayer

Back in my school days acting the fool boys
One and one and one made three
And the man said come and cut yourself a piece of the big time.

Armour-clad forces riding trojan horses
Never made sense to me
I didn€™t wanna be a part of the great debate on moonshine.

€˜Stop, pay the price€™, they said to me, €˜take this advice:
You€™re out of your head€™
Stop, hold the €˜phone -- this has to be cut to the bone
Too bad -- I see red
I see red. I see red.

She slips and stumbles, twists and she tumbles
She always lands on her feet
And she keeps her face turned to the far horizon.

Won€™t you come this way -- won€™t you go my way
Her rhythm doesn€™t miss a beat
She€™s just doin€™ everything she can to keep surviving.

€˜Stop, pay the price€™, she said to me, €˜take this advice:
You€™re out of your head€™
Stop, hold the €˜phone -- this has to be cut to the bone
Too bad -- I see red.
I see red. I see red. Yeah.

Now who wants a riot -- people should be quiet
Don€™t we give €˜em good TV
You can learn to love a lifetime of distraction.

You€™ve got nothin€™ on the inside, nothin€™ on the outside
All the way from A to B
I can live without that kind of satisfaction.

€˜Stop, pay the price€™, she said to me, €˜take this advice:
You€™re out of your head€™
Stop, hold the €˜phone -- this has to be cut to the bone
Too bad -- I see red
I see red. I see red. I see red. Yeah.

(fade and repeat)
I see red
I see red
You make me see red
Yes I see red
I see red
I see red.
