Once I had a name, I had ideals.
I should have known they wouldn't last me.
So where is my ambition now?
I've got nothing in mind and I've never been so happy

I'm everything I hoped I'd be.
A nine digit number, a face on surveillance TV.
It's so easy to say nothing's wrong
but 24 hours never seemed so long

Once I learned the rules, I never second-guessed.
It's not my place to argue.
Welcome to the system son.
Earn your pay so someone else doesn't have to.

I'm everything I hoped I'd be.
A nine digit number, a face on surveillance TV.
It's so easy to say nothing's wrong
but 24 hours never seemed so
seemed so long

I've seen the future laid out
and I know it's not for me
Take my check, pay the rent, go to work and then repeat
It's so easy to say nothing's wrong
but 24 hours never seemed so
seemed so long
