Blues So Deep They’re Purple

Everything is terrible
I know that it’s true
Everything is terrible
in a world without you

Her mother is terrible
and his grandma too
That baby is terrible
and that sky so blue
My breath is terrible
enough to set paint peeling
in this terrible room
with a hole in the ceiling.
This song is so terrible
that it leaves me reeling

Everything is terrible
in this world without you
Everything is terrible
under that sky of blue

This book is terrible
and the movie is worse
My day was so terrible
that all I want to do is curse.
& this song is still terrible
over in this verse
God is terrible
and so is the devil
but only one of them
is ever on the level

Everything is terrible
in this world of blue
Everything is terrible
you know that it’s true

The boss is terrible
and so is the job
but the economy is terrible
so suck it up, Bob.
The liars are terrible
but they still win elections
because the voters are terrible
at making selections
because they’re distracted
by someone’s complexion

Everything is terrible
this much is true
Everything is terrible
in a world without you.

And the struggle is terrible
but still we fight on
because nothing is more terrible
than giving up before the dawn
