The Lyrics

I know it's not really my style of music, but I had to get this idea out of my head.
No place to run,
No place to hide,
With all our suburban sprawls,
Identity died,
I want to lash out,
And go insane,
Where the homes look the same,

I want to drive right past this damn place,
A smog cloud that just won't disappear,
Another face,
That wants to get shelter from the sleet and rain,
Where the homes look the same,

Where the homes look the same,
Where the homes look the same,
We'll keep building,
Then crowding our towns,
Crowding our towns,
And when I'm in there,
I keep seeing you,
Get out of there dude,

These people just flood,
These streets in a rush,
These houses don't seem to begin,
Or end, I am crushed,
Overcrowded place,
High on the traffic flow,
Where the homes look the same,

Where the homes look the same,
Where the homes look the same,
We'll keep building,
Then crowding our towns,
Crowding our towns,
And when I'm in there,
I keep seeing you,
Get out of there dude,
These streets are all rushed,
These houses don't seem to begin,
Don't let them begin,
Oh and I see hope,
See our hope all get lost,
These houses don't seem to begin,
Don't let them begin,
And when I'm in there,
I keep seeing you,
Get out of there dude,

This is my style of music, and this is my style of parody... :) Good job

Sounds like the DFW Metroplex where I live. The number one cash crop in North Texas fields is subdivisions! (I shouldn't complain too much though, I live in one of them)

So do I, and I can't stand it.
