On the anniversary of the 2020 capital insurrection, I am playing Switchfoot 2005 song “The Blues”.

Is this the New Year or just another night?
Is this the new fear or just another fright?
Is this the new tear or just another desperation?Is this the finger or just another fist?
Is this the kingdom or just a hit n’ miss?
A misdirection, most in all this desperationIs this what they call freedom?
Is this what you call pain?
Is this what they call discontented fame?It’ll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves inI’m singing this one like a broken piece of glass
From broken arms an’ broken noses in the back
Is this the New Year or just another desperation?You’re pushing till you’re shoving
You bend until you break
Till you stand on the broken fields where our fathers layIt’ll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves inThere’s nothing here worth saving
Is no one here at all?
Is there any net left that could break our fall?It’ll be a day like this one
When the sky falls down and the hungry and poor and deserted are found
Are you discontented? Have you been pushing hard?
Have you been throwing down this broken house of cards?It’ll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves inIs there nothing left now?
Nothing left to sing
Are there any left who hasn’t kiss the enemy?
Is this the New Year or just another desperation?Does justice never find you? Do the wicked never lose?
Is there any honest song to sing besides these blues?And nothing is okay
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves inSource: MusixmatchSongwriters: Foreman Jonathan Mark
