you hear the noise it's your alarm
you're barely poised to move your arm
get up for work forget the night
cuz it could hurt and that just might, make you
a little less productive for the day ahead

get on the bus arrive on time
and you're with us from 9 to 5
caffeine at ten the usual
you see the end your cubicle

every day feels like a movie drug montage
why is every fire drill a false alarm?

twelve divisions in a circle urging you
to get to work or face things that you'd never choose

if it's all lies
then they're all me

Fluorescent Fraud
the sun is out
if there's a god he cares about you spending
every waking hour caught inside a box
he's given you the key but hidden all the locks
