On black friday
I'm alone in a crowd
We've been in line for hours and hours
Not making a sound

Behind these doors
Shiny new things packed from ceiling to floor
Just waiting to be found by that special someone
And taken home

What am I doing here tired and cold
The sky has opened and it's starting to pour
What am I looking for

The doors open
Now we're pushing and shouting like a monster movie scene
And I'm pushing too, what's come over me
I just wanna get mine and be free

There's a scraggly haired woman
Reaching for the last LED flatscreen TV
And I say to myself and I say to her loudly
Over my dead body

I come away with no TV or pride
With my face all scratched up and a raging black eye
I just wanna die

But somehow it ends
I got some stuff but I just don't care
I wanted what I wanted but I didn't find peace
Now I'm walking nowhere

On black friday
I've lost sight of the give and receive
But even more than hoping to get what I want
I just hope to find me
