"Employment" as written by Brian Mcternan, Francis Mark and Joshua C Newton....
Please check your ego at the door
We gather to embrace our flaws, no corrections
See I can write romantic songs
But one on one I get it wrong, every time
Youth is a waste and wisdom comes too late

An ambulance lights up the street
So much for keeping it discreet, just deny
While spectators line the black
Now might be the best time to stop, and start over

    General CommentSeems to be a failed suicide attempt. Sounds like the young person did so from too many failed love attempts, or for financial reasons. (the title is employment after all.) This song sent shivers up my spine...

    Also, it should be "while spectators line the BLOCK"...
