06 MAN IN A BAD MOOD

What do you see in these photographs?
What do you still see in me?
Why do you show them to everyone?
A man in a bad mood by the sea

Man in a bad mood wearing sunglasses
’Though the sun don’t shine
And in the evening he’s drinking water all the time
Instead of wine
Instead of wine, ain’t nothing there
To make him change his mind

Man in a bad mood dressed in black
’Though nobody’s dead
And in the nighttime he refuses you
When you’re lying in bed
Lying naked in bed, can’t get that block
Out of his head

Man in a bad mood walking slowly
On foreign soil
Looking bewildered at the rigs out on the sea
Where they’re drilling for oil
They’re drilling for oil, happy to get home
After weeks of toil

Man in a bad mood
Man in a bad mood by the side of the sea
By the side of the sea
How can it be?
How can it be, how can it be?
How come that guy looks just like me?
Just like me

Maybe we should come back some other time
Maybe in summer when the weather is fine
The air is hot and the trees are green
The sea is calm and the beach is clean
(There’s people roasting in the sun
People having fun)
Or maybe we should face the facts and quit
We always start fighting when it comes to the bit
And every time you take me for a ride
I’m contemplating murder or suicide
