lyrics

I've got a lot of bills I have to pay
I got a lot of essays due today
I don't have any time
To philosophize in my rocking chair
To wax poetic about how life isn't fair
I'm a slave to the grind

Even if things haven't changed when I die
I will be able to say that I tried
To think but not to act on it is to lie

Hang me

I finish school and get some steady work
Long hours for some bureaucratic jerk of a boss
Raising kids and keeping the rent
My life's so busy every day and night I'm spent
But it's not my loss
Not of a movement, I'm not part of a clan
Not part of any big political plan
Just me, my family and my man

Even if things haven't changed when I die
I will be able to say that I tried
Though I don't get this emptiness inside
