It's 8 am
he wakes up late again
no time to eat
he's half asleep
fifth time this week
heads on out cars in park
turns the key the damn
thing won't start
gets it jumped still
running late
88 down the interstate
flashing lights from behind
written up the second time
he tells himself he'll be fine

With 26 thousand dollars
in case payed in full
towards a car that did not last
7 thousand in back tax how
is he expected to pay that now
2 days ago he was
out drinkin' again
to the point he can't comprehend
nothing's at stake
if it's too late
to compensate and
bounce back

It's 10 am the parking lot
is full again
he finds a spot and pulls in right
runs upstairs and punches in
out of breath he's hd enough
the boss is standing
there looking tough
i don't care what
you've been through
now here's a box
you know what to do
packs his things nothin to say
25 years just thrown away
he tells himself he'll be okay

People push then act surprised
when it's too late to compromise
now's the time to watch him fall
and wonder why
what caused it all

He goes out onto the road
sees his car being towed
vengence now comes into play
against the worls
that made him this way
pawns his watch down the street
back to work packing heat
loads the clip kicks down the door
30 hostages hit the floor

His face is now all over t.v
brought to you live v.i.a.
you can be sure this will
headline news today

Police try to compromise
he gives in to their surprise
he spends his time locked away
thanking God for no work today

    General CommentWest Entrance is a really great new band that sounds like Dispatch, Howie Day, and a little bit of Dave. This song has a lot of meaning about a normal employee who one day snaps for revenge.
