lyrics

They say it’s good for the economy
Toiling away 12 hours a day
End up working half my life away
While death comes ripping after me

Up in the morning and off to work
Work all day as a number for a jerk
I have to wonder if this is the best it can be

Home late once again
Not enough time for the important things
I have to consider if this is how it should be

They say it’s good for the economy
Toiling away 12 hours a day
End up working half my life away
While death comes ripping after me

Weekend comes, got to work again
Seven days a week it’s always the same
Home late once again, just in time for bed

This is not how I imagined my life
I think my younger self would kick my ass
When he found me wasting away for a wage

They say it’s good for the economy
Toiling away 12 hours a day
End up working half my life away
While death comes ripping after me

Monday morning you know it’s all the same
Saturday, Sunday nothing changes
They say no pain no gain
But it seems a lot more like no gain for pain

Maybe it’s time to take control
Start living my life for me
Take a hint from David, Johnny, and Jello
But something tells me I’ll be back again

They say it’s good for the economy
Toiling away 12 hours a day
End up working half my life away
While death comes ripping after me
