Lyrics:

Bad news nothing but bad news
Filling up the airwaves
comin' down the wire
Bad news heard enough bad news
It's bringing me down, bringing me down

Old blues diggin' up old blues
Thought I was past them
now I rehash them
Old blues heard enough old blues
They're bringing me down, bringing me down

When there's trouble all around
When an answer can't be found
When things are looking down, I look up

When my eyes are clouded by
All the things that make me cry
When I ask and wonder why, I look up

Old shoes walkin' in old shoes
Taking me places, I don't want to face
No old shoes, livin' in old shoes
They're bringing me down, bringing me down

When there's trouble all around
When an answer can't be found
When things are looking down, I look up

When my eyes are clouded by
All the things that make me cry
When I ask and wonder why, I look up

I look up to the stars
I look up, "God, where are you?
I'm standing down, I'm looking up!"
I look up when I can't cope
I look up, seek out the hope
I look up, I look up

When there's trouble all around
When an answer can't be found
When things are looking down, I look up

When my well is running dry
I can't laugh and I can't cry
When all that's left is "why?"

When my back's against the wall,
Feeling oh so very small
Do I know anything at all?
I look up

Shoot my arrows to the sky
Feet of clay won't let me fly
Will I go there when I die?
I look up
