Garrison Doles: Song Lyrics

Buddha's Blues

Words and music by Garrison Doles

Workin’ for nothing
Payin’ the rent
Feel like you’re stuck in
A truck load of cement
Something is missing
Something you need
If you were cut wide open
You might not bleed
You look around and you just can’t believe
You’re standin’ in the middle of a canyon of lonely desire

These temptations
Are everywhere
Fill up your face with
A cold blank stare
You don’t want it
You want to do without
Then you want it
What’s that about
You look around and you just can’t believe
You’re standin’ in the middle of a canyon of lonely desire

Day after day the same old question
Never an answer
Make you feel like a fool
Could be a case of desperation
If somethin’ doesn’t break you don’t know what you’re gonna do

It’s an enigma
A puzzlement
No solution
Is evident
Where ever you go
Where ever you turn
You can’t put out the fire
You can’t let it burn
You look around and you just can’t believe
You’re standin’ in the middle of a canyon of lonely desire
