[V1] These warehouse wages kill the end's introduction Man, I shoulda' shchooled it up when I was younger, shoulda' stuck to plan Always had the dreams of bein' more self-assertive And my kid's a teenager now, he needs the health insurance So break my body, break-break my soul down Just another zombie walkin' blindly through ya ghost town Pull up to the bar to politic and tap the power Ain't nobody really all that jolly at your happy hour But I don't wanna go home yet So I'ma talk to my cigarette and that television set It doesn't matter what brand or station Anything to take away from the current situation No overtime pay, no holiday Months behind on everything but the lottery Winter 'round the corner, guaranteein' that my car dies Wifey havin' trouble tryna juggle both the part-times My cup ain't close to filled up We tryna build up so we could have enough And when I finally get the color, won't be nothin' else to paint on A friend of mine tried to kill himself to the same song [V2] My better half is mad at makin' magic outta can goods My tax bracket status got her questionin' my manhood My shorty got caught smokin' weed at a concert And if I smack 'em everybody treats me like a monster My neighbors ain't doin' much better And we makin' competition instead of stickin' together Can't save no nest egg, in fact this nest is rented In fact that rent is late, wait The money ain't here, the raise ain't comin' Just me and my son and that crazy woman And those bartenders, this whole fuckin' country Got everybody swallowin' that lunch meat Maybe we could speed up the process Kill me in my thirties in the name of progress Put me in the dirt and then change the topic Sometimes seems like the only way to stop it Contemplate my departure date Doesn't take a lot to get a lot of us to talk this way Take a shot at me, that's all I'm obligated for Apparently my only guarantee is a walk-away [Outro x2] The only guarantee in life Is a life worth dyin' for Cause death don't wait for no one It's sittin' on yo front door
