"Just Look Around" as written by Lou Koller, Pete Koller and Armand Majidi....
The question they keep asking me
How can one so young be so bitter and angry
Well,
The answer is plain to see
Maybe if they wern't so blind they'd see what I see
I see the homeless livin' out on the street
On every corner they're asking for money
I try to help them whenever I can
But sometimes I can't afford to help myself
I see diseases and modern plagues of our times
The greed of our leaders has made them blind
To our problems
They spend millions overseas,
People right here are fightin' wars everyday

I see the whites that hate the blacks
Blacks against the jews,
Race against religion
And the're all too blind to see

When we fight each other it puts all of them at ease
It keeps us so busy,
So they can do what they please
Election time comes and they're out for votes
That's when you see and hear from them the most
This is what they're calling a democracy
That's just another word for hypocrisy
We keep fallin' for the bait
When we realize,
It's always too late

I see the whites that hate the blacks
Blacks that hate the jews,
Brother against brother
And they're all to blind to see

As the rich get richer,
The poor goin' hungry
I've seen the toll it takes on the workingman's family
Education system that's obsolete
Can't hold a kid's interest or keep 'em off the street
See a father's fear,
Hear a mother's cry
What kind of a nation lets their children die
Government's corrupt and full of red tape
Then you're gonna ask me why I hate

Why don't you open up your eyes so you can see
Open up your ears so you can hear
Take a look around and you will find
Take a look around and you will find out why

    General CommentNot the best Sick Of It All song but easy one of them!
    the lyric is pretty obviously as it is brilliant!!!

    you allways hear that you claiming too much and that you should be satisfied to live in such a great land, but if you really open your eyes you WILL see the problems, and unfortunaly they are many!

    They also explain (pretty well in the chorus) how people with different color and beliefs fight against each other when they Should fight against the power ...as I see it CAPITALISM

    That is what the lyric is for me and it is pretty fucking good! You should all also listen to Madball, if you like
