We know what you’re going to say You say it every single day You used to work for what you earned? You think that’s something that we never heard? But God the times have changed, Just trying to make it our own way. Don’t act like you’re so concerned You’re leaning back while you watch it burn And still you treat us like we’re kids WHILE WE KILL YOUR BUSINESSES! “Get a job!” That’s all you say But we both know they just don’t pay! We’re flipping burgers just to pay for school Because they told us that’s what we should do We graduated and the only jobs left Were flipping burgers and serving up gruel Now ain’t that cruel? God ain’t it cruel? We black where you see white We see wrong where you see right If you just opened up your eyes You wouldn’t have to act so surprised That your time is running out Along with all your clout So enjoy it while it lasts Because it looks to me you’re fading fast. Its cray world out there And we all know you’re just scared So why not rest your head? It’s getting late and you should go to bed! And now they tell us we should buy a house Put up a fence and raise a family too No paid vacations, only doctors’ notes And without insurance? That’s just fucking cruel! God ain’t it cruel? We’re not so different you and us You just seem to lack some trust Are we not the ones you raised We’re nothing more than you gave We both fought in all their wars Are we really keeping score? Spitting venom back and forth? Was that really what its all been for? The world is far bigger than you And it will leave you behind soon So go on, pick up the slack! Because that clock it’s never turning back!

Benadryl 04:37
Drinking beer and popping pills, But it’s ok because they’re Benadryl The doctors say you shouldn’t do it Oh but what the hell? In twenty minutes I’ll be asleep No need to worry about anything Life’s so much better when there’s nothing else to do but dream I’ll dream the world’s a better place I’ll dream that mom and dad will keep me safe I’ll dream that all this wasted time, Oh god it’s not a waste… So just kick back it’s not hard to do Just relax and you’ll make it through But what the hell do I know? It’s not like I’ve got a clue. Now it’s ok to have a little fun THE EARTH IS BURNING UP UNDER THE SUN! You think the world is such a mess? Well you’re not the only one. You’re not the only one who sucks at life. You’re not the only one who’s art is trite. So grab a number and a magazine and then just get in line! Drinking beer And popping pills But its ok when they’re just Benadryl The doctors say We should not do it But what the hell, yeah? We’ll get through it.

Have you read the news today? We’re left to dig too many graves! You can help or you can pray, But do not tell me what not to say! Was it a mad man who lost his mind? Or just a lone wolf with too much time? Or some cowardly piece of shit Who couldn’t handle much more of it? And I ask myself Is this the new America? I think to myself Oh God, what happened to America? Was it the city? Was it the State? Or just this growing sense of hate? Was it the tourists out there having some fun? Where were those good guys with all their guns? Was it the politician up on the hill, who’d just become some corporate shill? Was it me? Was it you? What the Fuck are we suppose to do? And I ask myself Is this the new America? I think to myself Oh God, what happened to America? And I ask myself Is this the new America? I think to myself Oh God, what happened to America?

New Normal 03:47
They've got you all locked up and won't let you out. And it's gonna make you scream and shout. You're all pent up with nowhere to go. And so you're gonna let the whole world know. You're gonna tell them things aren't so bad. Except of course for mom and dad. Cuz businesses need money, too! So what else is the world to do? But who can blame the working poor, When plagues come and there ain't no cure? They ain't got no job and ain't got no school. And they're blindly being led by fools. They're just babies sucking at the teat. But spoiled milk ain't all that sweet. Now fake is real and real is fake! Pushed until our minds break! Down. Down. It's breaking down. So stay inside or get downtown. Down. Down. It's breaking down. So stay inside or get downtown.Down. Down. It's burning down. So hit the floor and roll around. Down. Down. It's burning down. So hit the floor and roll around.
