These warehouse wages

Kill the ends introductionman I should have schooled it up

When I was younger should have stuck to plan

Always had the dreams of being more self assertive

And my kids a teenager now he needs the health insurance

So break my body

Break break my soul down

Just another zombie walking blindly through your ghost town

Pull up to the bar to politic and tap the power

Aint nobody really all that jolly at your happy hour

But I don’t want to go home yet

So I’m gonna talk to my cigarette

And that television setIt doesn’t matter what brand or station

Anything to take away from the current situation
No overtime pay no holidayMonths behind on everything but the lottery

Went around the corner guaranteeing that my car diedWifey having trouble trying to juggle both the part timesMy cup aint close to filled upWe trying to build up so we can have enough

And when I finally get the colorThere won’t be nothing left to paint on

A friend of mine tried to kill himself to the same song

My better half is mad at making magic out of canned goods

My tax bracket status gotta questioning my man hood

My shorty got caught smoking weed at a concert

And if I smack em everybody treats me like a monster

My neighbors aint doing much better

And we making competition instead of sticking together

Cant save no nest egg in fact this nest is rentedIn fact that rent is late, wait

The money aint here the raise aint comingJust me and my son and that crazy woman

And those bartenders this whole fucking country

Got everybody swallowing that lunch meat

Maybe we can speed up the process

Kill me in my thirties in the name of progress

Put me in the dirt and then change the topic

Some time it 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
The only guarantee in life is a life worth dying for

The only guarantee in life is a life worth dying for

Cause death don’t wait for no oneSitting on your front door

The only guarantee in life is a life worth dying for

Cause death don’t wait for no one

Sitting on your front door
