Song Description

Satirical blues about a machine that writes blues songs. The singer notes that he's decided to look at difficulties in his life as material for blues songs, and wryly notes that he'll always have enough material, his life is a "Blues O Matic".

Story Behind the Song

I had the idea for this lyric a long time ago, but never really followed up on it until we decided we needed a humorous song for the current album. Chainsaw demo'd the track with the first draft of the lyrics, and we decided to let anyone on the CD contr

Lyrics

BLUES?O?MATIC?

Some people think it?s tough
To sing the blues
But I?ve never had it rough
Cuz I?m payin? my dues

My life is like a book
About doin? without
But I?ll always have enough
To sing about

I used to complain
When things go wrong
Now I just
Think about another song

I?ve got a Blues-O-Matic?
My life?s a Blues-O-Matic?
I?m just a Blues-O-Matic? baby
Every day?s another song

If you think you?ve had enough
Of the ugly truth
I?ll lipstick the pig
And give you barbecue

Life is like a movie
Full of mystery
The riddle solves itself
If you just let it be

I used to complain
When things go wrong
Now I just
Crank out another song

I?ve got a Blues-O-Matic?
My life?s a Blues-O-Matic?
I?m just a Blues-O-Matic? baby
Every day?s another song

It?s a digital stream
The state of the art
The drums kick in
And the bassline starts

It?s a dream machine
A turbo-charged thing
Gears spin around
As I start to sing

It?s never in doubt
As I throw the switch
A song comes out
And we all get rich

I?ve got a Blues-O-Matic?
My life?s a Blues-O-Matic?
I?m just a Blues-O-Matic? baby
Push a button for another song


(possible outro vamp):

Fueled by passion
And a touch of fear
Slavishly mastered
By the engineer
