What That's About

from by Joel Eckels




Workin’ til it’s all gone
Every last drop
Inspiration seems so far gone
So what is it worth?
Maybe it’s not your problem
Maybe you just can’t relate
But I can’t keep writing you songs this way

I think we’re all crazy
But we just can’t figure it out
What that’s about

Lookin’ for answers
Lookin for something
Looking for a scapegoat
Well, how ‘bout religion
Jesus never would’ve wanted it this way
Come Sunday, he’ll forgive you
You’re sinnin’ every other day


Are we headed for disaster?
Can’t we move, just a little bit faster?
I can’t live in fear
Not while I’m still standing here
Are we headed for disaster?
If it’s true, does it matter?
I can’t live in fear
So if the end is near,
I’ll see you in the ever-after

Turn off the tv, the marketing machine
Look who’s tryin’ to tell me ‘bout reality
Can’t watch the news no more
So what do you believe?
The world needs a hero and we’re relying on Britney
