Don’t you feel ok, knowing what you’re worth in pay?
Long hours might make you better.
We spend more than time,
At the long end of a line, intent on moving quicker.

There’s enough to be sad about,
Don’t you feel it’s time for turning out,
The sadness in your life?
Your tolerances fading to the grind of living right today.

So take a number, pick a profit, chose a station for the night.
Pour a measure of distraction, you’ll be watching all your life.

There’s a lesson learned, just looking on as our life burns,
Far from how you expected.
And you may dream of resignation, know you’ll get there in the end.
