Well I can't fill this space
I'm feeling out of place
It starts with us and ends up bad

It gets worse right here
Can't you read?
This towns a convenient store
You can buy whatever you want
But you can't get your literature

It gets worse when you're not on my side
It gets worse baby working 9 to 5
It gets worse when you're not on my side
It gets worse baby working 9 to 5

    My InterpretationThe first part seem to be about him not being able to find the right person to fill in the space that someone else left open and all his relationships are failings.

    The second part...

    "Can't you read?
    This towns a convenient store
    You can buy whatever you want
    But you can't get your literature"

    makes me think of how neglected education is and how the governments main focus is getting consumers and not childrens education.

    The third part sounds like he's switching off between the first part of the song and the second.

    The "It gets worse when you're not on my side" is refering to the girl in the first part.

    And "It gets worse baby working 9 to 5" building off the second part and how it will get worse for children when they get older. More ways the government controls you. (I.e, taxes, paycheck, benefits, which are decided by your job, usually decided by your education)

    OR!!! it's random as fuck with no meaning. But I like my first idea better.
