Good People
by Jack Johnson



You win It's your show, now So what's it gonna be
'Cause people, Will tune in
How many train wrecks do we need to see?
Before we lose touch and We thought this was low
It's bad getting worse so…

[Chorus:]
Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow

They got this and that With a rattle a tat
Testing one two, Man what you gonna do?
Bad news, misused, Got too much to lose,
Gimme some truth Now whose side are we on?
Whatever you say, Turn on the boob tube
I'm in the mood to obey
So lead me astray by the way, now

Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow

Sitting round feeling far away
So far away but I can feel the debris
Can you feel it?
You interrupt me from a friendly conversation
To tell me how great its all gonna be
You might no tice some hes i ta tion
'Cause it's important to you, it's not important to me
Way down by the edge of your reasons
It's beginning to show
And all I really wanna know is...

Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow

They got this and that With a rattle a tat
Testing one, two Now what you gonna do?
Bad news, misused, give me some truth
You got too much to lose Whose side are we on
to day, anyway? OK, whatever you say.
Wrong and resolute but in the mood to obey
Station to station desensitizing the nation
Going, going, gone.
