Strapped into the dent of a desk
Sick of all the pressure
Invested Pretense
I shuffle out to the deck
Where all the smokers sound off
One witness sighs in distress
Her sour face reflected in metal
Pulling from a pocket
I up and ask
And as she passes that flask
A sour face for all the
Sorrow replaced with alcohol

Everybody's working for the weak
And only when I sleep
Can I feel stronger
I don't care what you think
Cause I won't wait here
Too much longer

The two of us at two fifteen
The two of us in love
With Whiskey
Then in that moment we realize
Shivering in the cold
We've sold our souls
And don't even smoke

Everybody's working for the weak
And only when I dream
Can I feel stronger
I don't care what you think
Cause I won't wait her
Too much longer

Stop what you're doing now
What are you doing now?
Stop what we're doing now
What are we doing now?
Your world stops churning now
What are you doing now?
Stop what you're doing now
What are you doing now?

While everybody's working for the weak
You'll still be asleep
Knowing you got out
And don't care what they think
About those dreams you carry around

Everybody's working for the weak
I don't care what you think
Cause I won't wait here
Too much longer
(longer longer longer longer)

    General Commenti think this song is about how sometimes people have to do things they dont want to do, even if it is killing them

    General CommentIt's about working for the man, man. Sneaking out to take swigs from a flask to make the day go faster. Bitchin' about your boss. The rat race.
