Business As Usual Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Look at the weather
Look at the news
Look at all the people in denial

We're runnin time, leavin grace
Still we worship at the marketplace
While common sense is goin' out of style

I thought that I would be above it all by now
In some country garden in the shade

But it's business as usual
Day after day
Business as usual
Just grindin away

You try to be righteous
You try to do good
Business as usual
Turn your heart into wood

Monuments to arrogance
Reach for the sky
Our better nature's buried in the rubble

We got the prettiest White House
That money can buy
Sittin up there in that beltway bubble

When any hippie talks about our freedom
Well, this is what he really means

Business as usual
How dirty we play
Business as usual
Don't you get in the way

Yeah, make you feel helpless
Make you feel like a clown
Business as usual
Is breakin' me down

Boy, you can't go surfin in Century City
Yeah, them sharks out there are lurkin beneath the curb
Yeah, they rob you blind, chew you up and it ain't pretty
And it's a soul suckin', soul suckin', soul suckin'
Soul suckin' soul suckin', soul suckin' world

Business as usual
Day after day
Business as usual
Feel like walkin away

A barrel of monkeys
Or band of renown
Business as usual
Is breakin' me down
Breakin' me down
