lyrics

i can see the way you’ve changed
god it’s so disturbing
having your fun
you’ll never even know when you’re wrong
it’s only wasting time
time for me to ask the question
why should i sacrifice another year to the overlords?
you know they squander every hour we give them under the sun
then we find ourselves a new religion

i don’t need it
i can leave any time
don’t forget it
sell me the song
how you became a slave to the grind
must have made you out of your mind

how could a simple word be so careless?
and i know that you’re smart
you’ve made it clear
beyond all doubt
i only wonder why?
can’t you give me something i can stomach?
every hour it’s harder just to shake it off
we’ve gone too far to quit
your only option is to shake it off
we can’t afford to compensate participation

i don’t need it
i can leave any time
don’t forget it
sell me the song
how you became a slave to the grind
must have made you out of your mind

i don’t have to wonder what it could have been like
tell me what you’re thinking
tell me what you think, man
don’t try to pretend like you wouldn’t even miss me
tell me what you’re thinking, tell me what you think you’re seeing

i can be nothing more than what is right in front of me
flash a smile and you will find that i can be
idiotic in the ways you ask of me
no surprise when i agree

a labor of love
the only kind we ever seem to be discussing
figure it out
you should know we’ll nod our heads but never listen

i don’t need it
i can leave any time
don’t forget it
sell me the song
how you became a slave to the blind
must have made you out of your mind

i don’t have to wonder what it could have been like
tell me what you’re thinking
tell me what you think, man
don’t try to pretend like you give a fuck about me
tell me what you’re thinking, tell me what you think you’re seeing
