Listen to me, mister

My understanding is very crystal
I can see your mind is mournful and confused
And everything, at least to my understanding
Has been punched up red and black and blue

I figured everything that I read in the papers
Past from mouth to headlines was the vicious truth
And everything that I pick up off my TV screen
Is punched up red and black and blue

Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me

Listen to me, mister

I see another body starving in the street today
It's them, tomorrow maybe me or you
Are you prepared to ask a stranger for a favor
When you're punched up red and black and blue?

My understanding is very crystal
I can see just why we're weary and confused
And yesterday could set up all of your tomorrows
When you're punched up red and black and blue

Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me

Listen to me, mister
