  • Clock in you’re at work but you’re not working so hard
    Checking messages ten times a day ensuring you’re not bored
    Talking on someone else’s dime
    Put a quarter in the pay phone don’t keep them waiting on the line

    Rushing through time just to find myself
    Asking someone in the future if they’d save me a space
    Cause the line’s getting longer with every hour
    People forget why they’re waiting
    The mood’s turning sour

    I don’t want to go to school tomorrow
    Stay up late watching TV
    Eat a midnight snack I’ll pretend it’s Friday
    Complacent as I’ll ever be

    See those gentle sheep following a path to who knows where
    Chewing on the grass so plentiful the wool is growing thicker
    But the grass is made of plastic and there’s plastic on the grass
    A mechanical lady with her garden hose waters the cement

    Where’s my mystical pan who plays on his flute?
    Dancing entrancing those who choose to hear his tune
    There’ll be a man who comes out of hiding
    He’ll be the one who forces you to decide

    Why can’t I just believe just believe?
    I can move my feet
    Pondering is a step beyond wondering
    Complacent as I’ll ever be
