  • All of my days have been misspent
    Stuffing out the sofa and the antenna's bent
    Inside my heart's bustin' out at the seams
    I work for the impossible american dream

    I got a job at the grocery store
    A few bucks an hour and not much more
    The world comes in just to take things away
    They eat it all up and then they sleep into day

    I try not to care I would lose my mind
    Running 'round the same thing time after time
    Only two things bound to soothe my soul
    Cold beer and remote control

    Now once upon a time I was nobody's fool
    (once upon a fool)
    Two jobs and showing up for school
    I guess it comes apart so little by little
    You don't know your there till your stuck in the middle
    I try not to care I would lose my mind
    Running 'round the same thing time after time
    And only two things bound to soothe my soul
    Cold beer and remote control

    Sit down
    (sit down sit down)
    The room is dark
    (the room is dark)
    The blurry graffiti on the benches
    Across at the public park
    The plastic's black and buttoned
    (the plastic's black)
    The haze is blue
    (the haze is blue)
    And all I want is nothing to do


    'cause it's a long walk to the bus stop
    It's a long wait for the turning clock
    It's a two-tired car sitting up on the blocks
    And things I put aside like that pile of rocks

    I try not to care I would lose my mind
    Running 'round the same thing time after time
    And only two things bound to soothe my soul
    Cold beer and remote control

    Yes I try not to care I would lose my mind
    (all of my days have been misspent)
    Running round the same thing time after time
    (stuffing out the sofa and the antennas bent)
    And only two things bound to soothe my soul
    (inside my hearts busting out at the seams)
    Cold beer and remote control
    (i work for the impossible american dream)
    Yeah

    Cold beer and remote control
    (i said I guess it comes apart so little by little yeah)
    Yeah
    Beer and remote control
    (i said I guess it comes apart so little by little yeah)
    Yeah
