Just Lookin’

Listen To A Sample

Concrete Asphalt,
miles of wire.
Fast food, fast money,
one to a fast car.
fossil fuel Fumes,
fillin up the air.
people all around me,
they don’t seem to care.

another hot day,
another slick city.
a week in the woods,
and they’re somethin to pity.
there are no real trees here,
I need me some shade.
no one else is lookin,
but to just get paid.
I’m just lookin,
I’m just lookin.

they pile inside,
put the a/c on.
slave to the master,
for eight and beyond.
there are no real skills,
in this franchised culture.
everybody’s selling,
for the corporate vulture.

lunch time rush hour,
they’re hitting the streets.
jockey for position,
competing to eat.
mmmmm must be something real good,
watch em hurry and wait,
for a burger and fries,
and a world o’ waste.
I’m just lookin.

Chorus:
I’m lookin around,
this American town.
I’m lookin around,
and every face is a frown.
I’m hopin to find,
another person that minds.
I’m just lookin,
I’m just lookin.

Verse:
that woman in the Benz’,
got an arctic breeze,
blowin back brown hair,
yeah her face is gonna freeze.
spent the whole damn day,
in an air-conditioned office,
selling out the earth,
for the corporate profits.

now she’s drivin 10 miles,
to her spacious new home.
there’s room for a dozen,
she’s livin alone.
keeps the AC set,
72 degrees,
24/7
life is a breeze.
I’m just lookin.

Chorus:

yeah down in Taiwan and mexico,
you should see this.
there’s lots of poor people
who think they want to be us.
this horrid corporation’s
seeking cheap labor.
using up their bodies
say they’re doin them a favor

making things,
things you can’t even imagine.
things you’ll never need,
till they come into fashion.
hey you the consumer,
you don’t need no preference,
just buy one of each
get your love and acceptance.
I’m just lookin,
I’m just Lookin.

Chorus:
I’m lookin around,
this American town.
I’m lookin around,
and every face is a frown.
I’m hopin to find,
another person that minds.
I’m just lookin,
I’m just Lookin.
I’m lookin around,
this American town…….yeah.
