lyrics

You’re buried inside an office
A coffin where you could only be
A boss, a parent, a working stiff
Failing for all the world to see

You wish all of it was different
But you can never find the time
So you sink, sink and sink some more
As everything falls behind
It all builds up then comes right down
Deflection is your favourite game
Might as well look in the mirror
You only have yourself to blame
Friends like me could offer
As if you’d ever take advice
Sad to see you not get better
Drowning to your own device
The solution seems obvious
At least, I believe it’s true
Maybe give it all up now
I know perfect's not for you


Perhaps tomorrow is different
Because today sure is the same
It must be hard to lead
Repeating the same steps you came
An abundance of distractions
Keep you from being truly strong
If you ever had your own idea
We all know it would be wrong
When your day is over
Do you weep to yourself in shame?
The tears of disappointment build
as they flood your tarnished name

Only half your life has passed by
But it feels like it’s almost done
Sooner than later it’s over
And then what the fuck have you won

The solution seems obvious
At least, I believe it’s true
Maybe give it all up now
I know perfect's not for you
