lyrics

I’m still writing songs for kids
who have yet to give a shit about
society and all of it
the waiting room for retirement
and you can pledge yourself to gasoline
chase the sun for years in your dad’s machine
but it’s setting every night
and a last chance power drive
is too expensive in this economy
I keep going back to the giving tree
no taking chances, just sacrifices
no teenage dreams, just compromises
and it’s easy to bitch and mourn
over that which I cannot afford
and my bratty self-entitlement
is embarrassing, but it doesn’t cost a cent

I’m still writing songs for kids
who have yet to give a shit about the
economy and all of it
I’d burn my money but I can’t afford it
so I’ll sail with my friends oversees
to where middle fingers are currency
we won’t have cell phones or industries
just a ravenous bunch of middle finger bookies

I only need a little change
this pack of cigarettes
is twenty cents out of range
can you give me some change?

last night you woke me up at three
screaming you had won the lottery
you said that you would share it all with me
so we had ourselves a burning spree

shut up about my credit score
I know I’m poor, but this fire’s kind of warm
