I'm a slave to my job
And it's driving me crazy
The man is breathing down my neck
I go to sleep
So I can wake up really early
You can take the money back

And don't you believe I'll take my pain
Down to the corner store
And education what I needed
I need to drink a whole lot more

I need a way to get away
It's the life that we lead
Another day, another dollar
What's there left to believe?
Born and raised
Just to live inside this cell
I'll medicate myself

As I cruise the city streets
Busy with shuffled feet
No one
With their eyes looking up at the sky
They found their place in line
I don't want to be a ghostly shell
Of who I am
I could never leave my dreams
For someone else's plan

I need a way to get away
It's the life that we lead
Another day, another dollar
What's there left to believe
Born and raised
Just to live inside this cell
I'll medicate myself

I need a way to get away
It's the life that we lead
You're here today, you're gone tomorrow
What's there left to believe?
Fold the covers
And I crawl inside my shell
I'll medicate myself

I need a way to get away
It's the life that we lead
Another day, another dollar
What's there left to believe
Born and raised
Just to live inside this cell
I'll medicate myself

I need a way to get away
It's the life that we lead
You're here today, you're gone tomorrow
What's there left to believe?
Fold the covers
And I crawl inside my shell
I'll medicate myself
