lyrics

We Teach Nothing

There’s a good time,
When I know I’m late.
I’m waiting at a red light in another stupor haze
I wanna teach
That it’s not right…
But I gotta get back to work, and last night I drank for days

That ache is fine,
So I’ll try to skate
Through this work day, so I get myself paid
I hear the preach,
A rat in the maze
I dig in the glove box for another dart to blaze

Why do I do this… grind until I bleed?
Throw away my life for things that I don’t need?
Sponged for all I’m worth, for someone else’s greed?
Who gives a shit if the king succeeds?

I went in thinking,
I passed the test
And the disappointment hits when I got the answers wrong
Ignore the messages,
Social media hexes,
The Effort’s failing… and my attention is long gone

I never knew now,
That I needed know how
To weave these worlds together so I can survive
It’s all a waste of time,
So, I guess I’ll get in line.
To Punch the out clock… as home I start to drive

Why do I do this… grind until I bleed?
Throw away my life for things that I don’t need?
Sponged for all I’m worth, for someone else’s greed?
Who gives a shit if the king succeeds?
