lyrics

I thought the government was meant to help us out boys
I thought elections were to settle not divide
I thought officials were supposed to serve terms dear
And retire when past their prime
But we got a bunch of aging politicians
They say they know about our tough times
And I don't got the energy to do something about it
Gotta get to both my jobs on time

Cause without a job there ain't a place to sleep boys
And sometimes that's not enough
The credit cards coming in the mail dear
They say we're qualified and things look rough
But what we got's payment plan extortion
They say you really should've known before you signed
And we don't have the energy to do something about it
Got to get to both our jobs on time

Can you believe the people out at night drinking?
Can you believe the people breathing in smoke?
Why don't they want to live as long as I do?
I'm sure their doctors tell em they'll croak
Why don't they wanna get an education?
Why the hell did they refuse to vote?
Some people I guess just aren't worth helping
Yeah, I'm a student sir, how could you have known?

Most days I wonder how I got here
Most days I wonder how you are
Most days I drink until I can't feel
Cause feeling is a bridge too far
And if you're offering I'll have another smoke dear
Maybe then I'll finally feel fine
I'd like to stay and chat but I really must be going
got to get to both my jobs on time
Yeah I'd like to stay and chat but I really must be going
got to get to both my jobs on time
