Just Look Up



 Genre: Acoustic

Get Flash to see this player.

Here’s a song I wrote over a year ago but recently I actually got together with my old musical partner Steve and we created our own Hickling Stan version. This was a real pleasure to create as it was completely old school like we used to record when we first got together back in 2007. It has a kind of hand made feel to it, just guitar, mandola, vocals, shaker and tom tom all recorded live.

Just Look Up

Look at yourselves
Slaves to the machines
Walking through Kings Cross
Makes me want to scream

Lost in another world
Ignoring Pall Mall
Your a 21st century

Just look up
Just look up
Just look up

Use your phone
To call someone
Have a real live

As someone famous
Long ago said
Nation shall speak
Unto Nation

Just look up
Just look up

Try telling someone
You like them Face to face
Spend real time together
Rejoin the human race

Pass a comment
As you look them in the eye
Do something dangerous
Put your finger in the pie

Try to extract
The social media hook
Come of grid
Hey read a book

There’s more to life
Than kitten clips
Or headline grabbing
Clickbait shit
Like and share
And share and like
Emoji hashtag
Ephemeral shite

Sleepwalking into dystopia
As Zuckerbergs snake unfurls
It’s not just happening in London
It’s all over the world

Cool song. Love the Mandola.

Beautiful job on the vocal harmonies.

Lyrics reminded me of the second verse in my own tune MARKING TIME:

"Young folk milling all around here;
they seldom see the sky.
Their eyes are fixed on their devices.
They really don't know why.

They're marking time.
Life's passing them by..."

Well done lads!!!
