The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. more »

Look at the weather, look at the news
Look at all the people in denial 
We're running time, leaving grace
 Still we worship at the marketplace  While common sense is goin' out of style 
I thought that I would be above it all by now
In some country garden in the shade 

But it's business as usual 
Day after day
 Business as usual 
Just grinding away
You try to be righteous 
You try to do good
But business as usual  Turns your heart into wood

 Monuments to arrogance reach for the sky
Our better nature's buried in the rubble 
We got the prettiest White House that money can buy
 Sitting up there in that beltway bubble
The main jefe talks about our freedom 
But this is what he really means...

 Business as usual 
How dirty we play
 Business as usual 
Don't you get in the way
Yeah, make you feel helpless 
Make you feel like a clown  Business as usual 
Is breakin' me down

Boy, you can't go surfing in Century City
Yeah, them sharks out there are lurking beneath the curb
Yeah, they rob you blind, chew you up, and it ain't pretty 
And it's a soul suckin', soul suckin', soul suckin', soul suckin'
Soul suckin', soul suckin' world 

 Business as usual 
Day after day
 Business as usual 
Feel like walking away
A barrell of monkeys 
Or band of renown  Business as usual 
Is breakin' me down
Breakin' me down
