Blow the candles
Make merry wishes
Soon comes farewell kisses
School crammed down like medicine
Or you can work everyday
Which is worse in comparison?
Either way you're losin' that money
Hope you can keep a roof and your ride.
Poor kid, oh honey,
Ain't anywhere for you to hide.
No one told you this is what you were signin' up for
Life of work, Life of chores.
Now you're in
And there ain't a way out.
Here drink this alcohol
It'll help without a doubt.
It's how the rest of us cope
Maybe add a lil' dope.
Ask yourself how in the hell
Did your parents even get a house?
When you're over here
Fishin' out the quarters from your couch.
You lay your head down to go to bed
Dreading the time the sun peeks through the window
Gotta go back to work,
With depression following you like your shadow.
Oh you wanna cry?
Dear child, I couldn't fathom why.
This is just how life works.
Maybe you need to go to church.
Oh yes, God will help
He ain't even there
But delusions are nice
When you're not in the best of health.
Just be patient, keep waitin.
Clutching, grasping, reaching, grabbing,
Tear, Seize, Rip, Claw, and sink yours hands
Into whatever you can
To make it feel like you're alive
And that you're not quite ready
To close those pretty little eyes.
Grab whatever you can
Life's a ****** ******' mess
Find something you can sink your teeth into
Cause as everybody says,
This is just the way to success.
