Lyrics for Drifting To The Right

Drifting To The Right

He’s hurting and he’s angry, he’s looking for a fight

He’s losing his perspective and drifting to the right

Drifting to the right, drifting to the right, drifting away.

I last talked to him in high school

He was a party guy

He had several different girlfriends, he was almost always high

But he was different when we spoke on the telephone last night

Slowly, slowly, slowly drifting to the right.

Drifting to the right, drifting to the right, drifting away.

His businesses went bankrupt in the housing industry

Now he’s selling insurance and building equity

He’s starting to do pretty well but he’s not really happy

Slowly, slowly, slowly, drifting to the right

Drifting to the right, drifting to the right, drifting away

Lost in the new America, can’t talk to his wife

Losing his perspective, looking for a fight

Can I help him with his anger, help him know he’ll be alright

Stop the drifting, drifting to the right, drifting to the right

Drifting away.
