about

A conversation with a close friend inspired this song. Another look at consumerism and emptiness in our culture. People watching even in NYC was beginning to feel like seeing empty vessels being directed into “mega” stores while ignoring their souls calling. “America; brought to you by China” was our punch line in the conversation, a new billboard idea. Selling the one thing that remains young, is “taboo” and never dies; sex...

lyrics

Look Away
(Tobias, Zay, Taylor)

Look away
Everyone wants to fucking look away
Where're you going today?

Sick of running on empty
Sick of having this thorn in my side
Don't you tell me this is just stubborn pride

I've been searching up and down the city street
Quiet horizons where lost souls will meet
Back and forth through loop holes again

Directed to the sprawling malls of our culture
You'll get the mega-mega virus of suburbia
Our cities infested, our children arrested
No wanting to see them, no outlet for freedom
Feed me lies!

Look away
Everyone wants to fucking look away
Where're you going today?

Freaks and prostitution
Lonely old men and contribution
Running toward the paper chase illusion

Pussy addicted human condition
Probing your mind's eye, selling what won't die

Look away
Everyone wants to fucking look away
Where're you going today?

One for the children
One for the mistake we've made
Nothing ever takes me out of this game

It's all or nothing for the story that you need
When you think you've won you've already been beat
Behind the veil, into your eyes
A tear will shed on the door of time

Pussy addicted human condition
Probing your mind's eye, selling what won't die

Look Away - make my day
Look Away
