From Red To Blue - Billy Bragg

    Another day dawns grey, it's enough to make me spit
    But we go on our way, just putting up with it
    And when I try to make my feelings known to you
    You sound like you have changed from red to blue

    You're a father now, you see things in different ways
    For every parent will gain perspective on their wilder days
    But that alone does not explain the change I see in you
    The way you've drifted off from red to blue

    Sometimes I think to myself
    Should I vote red for my class or green for our children?
    But whatever choice I make
    I will not forsake

    So you bought it all, the best your money could buy
    And I watched you sell your soul for their bright shining lie
    Where are the principles of the friend I thought I knew?
    I guess you let them fade from red to blue

    I hate the compromises that life forces us to make
    We must all bend a little if we are not to break
    But the ideals you've opted out of, I still hold them to be true
    I guess they weren't so firmly held by you
