Lyrics

Lookin’ Down (Pachelbel’s Canon), by Kenny Weill

You call it an addiction
I say it’s an affliction
That’s causing lots of friction
We’re always looking down

I worry this technology
Brings out the very worst in me
What happened to civility
I can’t stop looking down


Chorus:
You can call me old-fashioned
Or maybe outta touch
Pining away for an age
Didn’t amount to much


One thing I’d like to mention
If I could just get your attention
I got only good intentions
But you’re intent on looking down

It’s too easy to hide
Behind a hand-held device
When will we decide
We’ve had enough of looking down


Chorus
You can call me old-fashioned
Or maybe outta touch
Pining away for an age
Didn’t amount to much

What would Pachelbel think?

You can call me old-fashioned
Or maybe outta touch
Leaning on the past
Just like a crutch


Bridge:
We can’t talk to each other
So we look down
We’re afraid of the other
Safe to look down
We can’t stand one another
So we look down
Best to look down


The art of conversation
Replaced by Facebook nation
A lost civilization
Forever doomed to look down

Someday I’ll raise my eyes
To embrace the sunrise
It’s time we realize
Gotta end this looking down


Chorus


Isolation – Desolation – Fake Relations – Sex Frustration
Bad Decisions – Ghost Derisions – Cyber Prison – Mass Perdition
