Time to move on from the unplugged stuff and get back to a bit of good old electric blues and start thinking about the next album. There’s some ideas floating around my head including perhaps reforming the old Blues Merchants?
This is a song about people messing with your head, manipulating you – that sort of thing.
Here’s the lyrics :
You tell me one thing then you do another
I never know what you mean
What do you want?
What do you need me to do?
The things you say don’t make no sense
Make up your mind stop sitting on the fence
Is what you’re telling me really what you meant?
Let’s be clear. Let’s cut the crap
Do you think maybe we can do that?
Stop playing silly games with my head
Head games – Wadda ya mean?
Head games – never what they seem
What are your plans – does anybody know
Do you wanna stay here or do you wanna go?
Leaning to the left or leaning to the right
If it’s out of mind then it’s out of sight
Give in gracefully or put up a fight
Head games – messing with my head
Head games – can’t figure what you said
Can’t trust a politician to mean what they say
They screw anybody just to get their way
You’ll never guess what on their minds
You’ll never know until you’re outta time
Head games – playing all the time
