ITHAKA


The Bum With Blue Blood Lyrics

I'm just a bum with blue blood who knows no shame
I ain't got a dime ... but at least I got my name

Pops from the Bronx ... Moms from Chattanooga
I was more than they bargained ... I was accidental
junior

But the blood of Kings flows from both sides
Ithaka and Edinburg ... but all of them have died

My kin lost their crowns eons ago
Trees must lose their leaves in order to grow

No, where you come from don't matter none
It's what you won't do ... and what you haven't done.

Don't know where I'm going to
Ain't got no idea what I'm gonna do

I got no purpose in life
When should I agree? When should I fight?

I wander around in search of nothing
Never knowing what the future will bring

Walking down the road with no goal in my mind
Don't know who I will meet ... or what I will find

Have I lost my life? Or am I just blind?
Have I wasted my youth? Am I just killing time?

Walking down the road with no shoes on my feet
Knowing I must learn what no teacher can teach

I'M JUST A BUM WITH BLUE BLOOD ... WHO KNOWS NO SHAME
I AIN'T GOT A DIME ... BUT AT LEAST I GOT MY NAME

Never looked within ... cuz, I've always looked out
Never knew nothing anyway ... so I had nothing to doubt

But don't examine me like a frog in disection
I ain't exactly the picture of perfection

Just being me, for what it is ... or what it ain't
I may not be the devil, but I sure ain't no saint

Don't try to help others ... haven't learned to help
myself
Yeah, I'm flat broke ... but thanks to Zeus still got
my health

There are no guarantees in life
But you can't say ... that I didn't try to try.

And now I'm right back where I started from
Lost, tired and busted ... least I'm a royal bum.

It's OK to be broke when you are nineteen or twenty
Didn't worry so much ... when living in the land of
plenty

But when you're Three-0
And still ain't got no dough

It's time to reassess the situation
Before you live your whole life in frustration

When I was young ... thought I just needed love.
But when your stomach's empty, food don't fall from
above

It's better to be wise than rich
But better yet to be well not sick

I was a prisioner ... I made myself free
But now I've f**ked up ... and I'm a prisioner again

All f**ked up with no where to go
I don't own a jacket ... and it's getting kinda cold

I'M JUST A BUM WITH BLUE BLOOD ... WHO KNOWS NO SHAME
I AIN'T GOT A DIME ... BUT AT LEAST I GOT MY NAME

They say knowledge is truth ... and truth is knowledge
But I didn't learn nothing truthful in my three weeks
at college

Thought I didn't need no glasses to see
Thought I didn't need no knowledge to be free.

I exchanged hardship for understanding
Still don't understand ... I'm headed for a
crashlanding

More shit I know ... more I know, I DON'T KNOW SHIT
Been walking most of my life ... don't know where to
sit

But don't tell me what I am or what I will become
Cuz, I know what I am ... I'm a royal bum

Don't know where I'm going to
Ain't got no idea what I'm going to do

I got no purpose in life
When should I agree? When should I fight?

I wander around in search of nothing
Never knowing what the future will bring

Walking down the road with no goal in my mind
Don't know who I will meet ... or what I will find

Have I lost my life? ... or am I just blind?
Have I wasted my youth? ... Am I just killing time?

Walking down the road ... with no shoes on my feet
Knowing I must learn what no teacher can teach

I'M JUST A BUM WITH BLUE BLOOD ... WHO KNOWS NO SHAME
I AIN'T GOT A DIME ... BUT AT LEAST I GOT MY NAME
