lyrics

Here I am, at 24, knocking at some old man's door,
asking, “may I work for your store?”
Jump ahead - scrubbing clean the carpets from his old man's dream,
wondering “what is all this for?”
Nighttime brings a drive artistic,
swilling swill with freaks in lipstick,
now every day I wake up sick,
to go and work for some jerk,
some retail slug who pats me on the head.
I'm wasting away.
Well I'm fired up, and I'm fired,
another job's grown tired,
now every day I wake up broke.
Trying to find a way to sell my art, my soul, I'm going through Hell,
stretching this thing as far as it can go.
Ideas and beers, yea, I'm all ears.
I might just be part of a hipster generation.
Got a hundred bucks to my name, but I'll be damned if I miss this game,
my soul and wallet got me caught in a knot.
25 and still alive, my car just broke and I can't drive,
can't find the line, arrogance and pride.
Well I'm fired up and I'm fired, another job's grown tired,
my soul and wallet got me caught in a knot.
