lyrics

I'm sick of working in a place where everyone has to be the same
and when my manager comes in, he's got to read my name-tag to know my fucking name
I'll get your coffee, I'll get your fries
can I get you a side of bullshit to go with those deep-fried lies?
I'm sick of worrying if I will ever make a living off of me
so I'm putting it all on a page, and I'll record the broken image to CD
I'll get a contract to be a jerk, but it's better than having to put up with all of this bullshit work
I don't want to have a lot of friends if a friendship is based on kissing ass
as they high-five me at the bar they whisper to each other as I pass
just shut the fuck up and buy your shot
and don't you talk about me if your shit-job's all you've got
I'm going to die at thirty-five if I don't try to change my cyclic ways
I don't see the point to stay alive if my dreams will just come with me to my grave
so go ahead with your robot job
and turn and just dismiss me as a deadbeat, loser, slob
