  • These warehouse wages
    Kill the ends introduction
    I should have schooled it up
    When I was younger should have stuck to plan
    Always had the dreams of being more self assertive
    And my kids a teenager he needs the health insurance
    So break my body
    Break break my soul down
    Just another zombie walking blindly through your ghost town
    Pull up to the bar to politic and tap the power
    Aint nobody all that jolly at your happy hour
    But I don’t want to go home yet
    So I’m gonna talk to my cigarette
    And that television set
    It doesn’t matter what brand or station
    Anything to take away from the current situation

    No overtime pay no holiday
    Months behind on everything but the lottery
    Went around the corner guaranteeing that my car died
    Wifey having trouble juggling both the part times
    My cup aint close to filled up
    We trying to build up so we can have enough
    And when I finally get the color
    There won’t be nothing left to paint on
    My friend tried to kill himself to the same song

    My better half is mad at making magic out of canned goods
    My tax bracket status gotta questioning my man hood
    My shorty got caught smoking weed at a concert
    And if I smack em everybody treats me like a monster
    My neighbors aint doing much better
    And we making competition instead of sticking together
    Cant save no nest egg in fact this nest is rented
    In fact that rent is late, wait
    The money aint here the raise aint coming
    Just me and my son and that crazy woman
    And those bartenders this whole f**king country
    Got everybody swallowing that lunch meat
    Maybe we can speed up the process
    Kill me in my thirties in the name of progress
    Put me in the dirt and then change the topic
    Some time it seems like the only way to stop it
    Contemplate my departure date
    Doesn’t take a lot to get a lot of us to talk this way
    Take a shot at me that's all i'm obligated for
    Apparently my only guarantee is a walk away

    The only guarantee in life is a life worth dying for
    The only guarantee in life is a life worth dying for
    Cause death don’t wait for no one
    Sitting on your front door
    The only guarantee in life is a life worth dying for
    Cause death don’t wait for no one
