i loved this song in high school, but didn't understand it yet.

"work song"
by caroline's spine

it's another early morning
sun came up without a warning
i never do nothing til i'm showered and clean
got my pager
got my cuffs
a matching tie should be enough
i never leave the house without something to eat

an early riser by genetic
take the stairs cause i'm athletic
always at the office before anyone else
i take my faxes to be copied
grab a doughnut
grab some coffee
picture a diploma sitting on my shelf

the monotony is killing me
and i try to deny this corporate lobotomy

i need a suit of armor for a meeting
know i'm gonna take a beating
understaffed and my department's in a crunch
budget has become a hassle
boss is ripping me a new asshole
says he wants an answer on his desk before lunch
afternoon things don't look better
phone machine is breaking records
five hundred messages from who knows where
staying late 'cause i'm a beginner
call my girlfriend cancel dinner
says she thinks i'm having an office affair

the end of day there's no solution
face the traffic air pollution
put a smile on my face i didn't get fired
back at home to clear my head
i grab a drink
fall into bed
forty more years until i get to retire

the monotony is killing me
and i try to deny this corporate lobotomy
