lyrics

At 7:41
The best part of my day is done
As Howard Stern tears the sheets off of my bed
I’m still dreaming as I hit the floor
When I won’t need this anymore
The shower drains those thoughts out of my head

And behind all of my Gap jeans
Is a pinstriped suit I’ve never cleaned
I don’t know many folks who’ve died
And I run my fingers through my hair
Brace myself as I prepare
For Monday morning’s little ride

On this train off the tracks
I might never make it back

In the world of ads and magazines
That try to sell me my own dreams
I make them coffee I do my best to blend
I’m just filling in temporarily
But the Mac lights up and smiles at me
As if to say good morning my new friend

And with a Dunkin Donut in my hand
I do my best to understand
How life could be turning out so strange
The New York Post predicts the end of hope
But I flip it to my horoscope
That says hang on man things are gonna change
It says hang on man things are gonna change

And it’s blowing hot black smoke into the sky
And the wheels are grinding gravel
I can see the sparks fly
And I don’t know how to stop it man
I couldn’t if I tried
And I don’t know if I’ll make it out
Alive

Two years are almost up
And they gift wrap a corporate coffee cup
That says Thanks To You We’re #1
And I check the inside for the fact
That they did it standing on my back
As I take the money you know I never run

Because somewhere deep inside I know
There’s another way to go
Or at least a better way of wasting time
And one day I’ll spike this world against the floor
And find the peace I’ve been looking for
And when I do I’ll kiss their ass goodbye
And when I do I’ll kiss each ass goodbye

And I’ll ride this train off the tracks
And I’ll never make it back
I won’t ever make it back
