Disconnected

I wasted all my money, I squandered my last wish
I wanted milk and honey, but all I got was fish
Now I'm disconnected, disconnected from myself
I'm not here, I'm someplace else

When there's a hint of trouble, when there's a hint of fear
I get out on the double, though it looks like I'm still here
Now I'm disconnected, disconnected from myself
I'm not here, I'm someplace else

I'm disconnected from myself
I'm not here, I'm someplace else

You live in a mansion and I live in a ditch
You like me 'cause I'm handsome, I like you 'cause you're rich
But then I'm disconnected, disconnected from myself
I'm not really here, I'm someplace else

We're at your dinner table, we've been drinking quite a lot
Your daddy says the blacks and gays and poor folks should be shot
But I'm disconnected, disconnected from myself
I'm not here, I'm someplace else

I'm disconnected from myself
I'm not here, I'm someplace else

I'm laying on my death bed, I'm stiff as I can be
There's someone up in Heaven, Lord knows it isn't me
Because I'm disconnected, disconnected from myself
You know, I'm not here, I'm someplace else

I'm disconnected from myself
I'm not here, I'm someplace else
I'm disconnected from myself
I'm not here, I'm someplace else
