John Butler Trio
John Butler Trio - Old Man
Old man he looks out the window You know he gets quite a fright. Whole world has gone and changed on him Feels like it was overnight. He saw a world war yeah it came and went The man walked on the moon right there in his living room Saw that TV become a relgion , The Wall came down and Big Mac beat the communists. Feels like it was overnight. Old man looks out the window You know he can not open it anymore. The air outside its gone to rancid And the doctor said for him you know it wouldn't be so good for He saw a hole start opening up in the sky He's buying water man he doesn't even know why The smog alerts don't let him even go outside And then he start he start to think When the Earth it start to die. Feel like it was overnight Enjoy your last. Last taste of freedom! Old man he looks out the window You know he does not feel so safe anymore. he come from those supposed good ole days When you did not even have to go lock your doors He saw security man look Police man Saw the Police start looking like the Army Man, He saw Army start acting like the C.I.A And guess what, the C.I.A was the president. Feels like it was overnight Enjoy your last. Last taste of freedom!
