Lookin' Back    (1971)

You hit the street, you feel them staring
You know they hate you, you can feel their eyes a glarin'
Because you're different, because you're free
Because you're everything deep down they wish they could be

You're lookin' back (you're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people lookin' back
They're lookin' back (they're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people lookin' back

They watch the news, see young men dying
They watch them bleedin' and they listen to them lyin'
And if they're normal, if they can see
They just reach out and change the channel on the TV

They're lookin' back (they're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people lookin' back
They're lookin' back (they're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people lookin' back, back, back, back, back, back, back

When they could vote, and end the war
They're much too busy fittin' locks upon the back door
Give you a foxhole, a place to hide
'Cause when the war comes the cops'll be on their side, lord

They're lookin' back (they're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people lookin back
They're lookin' back (they're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people lookin' back, back, back, back, back, back, back

They're lookin' back (they're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people lookin back
They're lookin' back (they're lookin' back) they're lookin' back (they're lookin' back)
Too many people, too many people, too many people lookin' back
