Big debts.
You know they got me,
More than I got out
And every month I think I've finally hit the bottom
But they keep growing
And fucking growing
And every month I get in deeper
With my knowing.
Well, God damn!
How did this happen?
It's not like I spend all my time spending, spending.
Well, God damn!
If I could get out,
Somehow I know I'd just go right back in.

All my friends
They're in the same boat
They just can't get out
But they keep working every day as if there's hope
And that's it
That's how we're living
And to boot, we're still made to feel guilty
Well, God damn!
How did this happen?
It's not like we spend all our time spending, spending.
Well, God damn!
If we could get out,
Somehow I know we'd just go right back in.

They say we have to learn to compromise
Stay inside our means and we'll all be fine but
We're surrounded by their credit lines
And their payment plans with interest, my oh my and
Why do you think they fucking advertise?
It's cause we'll make them rich
While they ruin our lives and
Like Jaycie Jayce in a conga line
I'm in an awkward place and I'm out of time.
And they only say you have to compromise
Once in you're in too deep
And they own your life and
It's no wonder that we're all stressed out
When paying bills is always on our mind and
They say we have to learn to compromise
Stay inside our means and we'll all be fine but
We're surrounded by their credit lines
And their payment plans with interest, my oh my and
Why do you think they fucking advertise?
It's cause we'll make them rich
While they ruin our lives and
Like Jaycie Jayce in a conga line
I'm in an awkward place and I'm out of time.

    General CommentAnyone know what the more robotic voice is saying in the background near the end of the song?

    It starts at the lyric, "They have to say we have to learn to compromise." 9 lines from the end of the song?

    General CommentIt's near impossible to make out but I believe it is repeating some of the previous lyrics. I think I can make out "made to feel guilty".

    General CommentWhen I was at their show I was watching the guy singing that part and it does look like he's just repeating lyrics. It doesn't sound like it on the song.

    General Commenti think the third line: "more than i got out" is actually "more than i got 'em";
    it would complete the rhyme with the ending of the next line: "i've finally hit the bottom"
