lyrics

I'm 31 years old and I still don't wanna go.

Hey dad can you call me into work today?
I have an extreme case of "not wanting to sit and stare at a screen all day"

Pushing pixels for the man
My teeth are rot so I need this dental plan
I'm just another corpse in queue
But so are you

A break room for the souls
Who need some time alone
And the workers can't go home
Until they've spent all their bones

Time waits for... no one

Remember when Lauryn Hill's character's mom in the movie Sister Act II said "Music doesn't pay the bills." and "Music doesn't put food on the table." Well, she was right.

Learn to play guitar
And get a free drink at the bar
And aint it a shame no one likes your band
And you tried so hard

A break room for the souls
Who need some time alone
And the workers can't go home
Until they've spent all their bones

Time waits for... no one

I'm ashamed
I'm afraid
That I'm so lame
And time won't wait for me to get it together

Now I'm losing my mind, Now I'm losing my job
Now my cat is dying, and my car's been robbed
All my funds are waning and the man's complaining
Who am I fooling? My man is gone.

Time waits for... no one

I'm getting older and I'm so afraid to die
Maybe I should quit smoking, maybe I should start taking vitamins
Maybe I should move to the country and start a family, a real nice family
Eat some fucking peaches and shit I don't know
Or maybe I should listen to Frankie... and relax
Or move to Hollywood.
