"Oldman" as written by John Aka Johne Battle Battle, Jason "iceberg" Lary, Jesse Mobley, Rashead Webb, Jevon (pka "dj Len") Moore, M. Blackmon and J. Prister....
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!

    General CommentThis song is just awesome, musically, it's not the greatest but it has so much meaning. It talks about everything that happened in the mans life and how the world is in a decline. When he was young everything was great, "supposed good ol' days", then it ends with the man not even being to be able to go outside. This song is great.
