Same Old Thing
Hell to me is the nightmare of an endless concrete freeway lined with identical chain restaurants where we all drive in our giant identical SUV's while listening to the same cookie cutter music on the radio. Where does it lead? Nowhere. Then I wake up or do I?
The Same Old Thing It's all been said before It's all been done before Still we're all looking for more Of the same old thing There's a million places to eat Just like the one across the street And all the people that I meet They wear the same old thing Same old lies Telling us what to buy Same old cheats Who poison what we eat Same old laws That put money in their paws Same bored masses Who keep sitting on their asses It's the same old thing We do it to ourselves Then we blame someone else We think it's just a game It's the same old thing We'll buy our happiness Who cares about the rest We call this progress It's the same old thing Same old thing Nothing new to me There are people who remember How it used to be When we wanted to be free Of the same old thing
