Caught in the rain like a time change you don’t expect
Wait for the train downtown, see the heroine kids
Their pockets are full of balloons, but they sink to the ground.
The city makes music, but they’re turning off the sound.

And sometimes the world gets dark, but it always stays true
Lord knows that I got me those hesitation Blues

Like a clown without a circus
Like the ones that love to hurt us
Like the rough jagged surface
Like a god without a purpose
Like a warm dark hole where you would rather stay

Here comes the train, and the lights look like 4th of July
They stumble and drool like they ain’t got nothing to hide
Their eyes roll back to heaven like Lord I’m gonna kiss the sky
But that beauty looks ugly when you look it straight in the eye

It ain’t the escape that’s wrong, it’s the escape that you choose
Lord knows that I got me those hesitation Blues

Like an unseen solar system
Like the too late taken wisdom
Like a tired migrant’s income
Like the thief who played the victim
Like a cards you’d rather fold than try to play

Don’t Let it bring you down
Don’t let ‘em bring you down

Caught in the rain like a time change you don’t expect
Wait for the sound to come out of your new speaker set
The song is hard, but the way the band played it is soft
The clocks they quit counting, and everything starts to stop……

But the time keeps rollin’ on, and there ain’t nothing I can do
Lord knows that I got me those hesitation Blues

How Long, do I have to wait?
Can I get you know, Lord must I hesitate?
