i see the ghost of two lovers
in the back row kissin
light flickers
the projector is hissin
in the foyer they gather to come in
the show, ladies and gentlemen, is about to begin

i'm the nicotine dependant
cinema attendant
and i work for very little pay
i take the tickets at the door
as the people pass me by
and i watch the day fade away hey

cause i get bored in such a hurry
(he get's so bored)
i'd quit but i need the money
(he can't afford)
workin at the cinema
all day and all night

all day and all night
yeah

well the movies are pretend
but my job is so dead end
i thought that it would be fun
but i was wrong
and now the people check their cash
as i pick up all their trash
and i wonder why the movies are so long

cause i get bored in such a hurry
(he get's so bored)
i'd quit but i need the money
(he can't afford)
workin at the cinema

wait there's something wrong with this picture
i don't wanna be in it anymore
oh it's makin me so sad
oh oh oh
i play the lead not the supporting cast
and i know nice guys finish last
and i'm gonna finish last

well the movies are pretend
but my job is so dead end
the end
