I swear i'll run away from every home I ever have
So i'll build a new house in every town i pass.
Maybe then I won't always feel lost and trapped.
When I was growing up, i was the smartest kid i knew.
Maybe that was just because I didnt know that many kids.
All I know is now I feel the opposite.
Like if you dont want to work, then that becomes your job.
Theres a lot of overtime, theres not many days off.
I hope you know that I'm not trying to complain.
It just gets hard to explain to people that I know, or kids who come to shows
that I just dont want to talk about the office today.

'Cause i've watched friends go from being pessimists to work at home archeologists
they dig skin deep, they work every day
i'm burying their arms for a vein or two that maybe they forgot.


And the cops say its a crime for people like me and those friends of mine to want to die
like my neighbor in St. Pete
she's been on house arrest down here
if she tries to leave her yard they'll lock her in a cage for years.
cause sometimes she wants to die.
and she shoots dope when she thinks she could die
and the law they caught her one too many times
shootin dope when she felt like she could die.

We're building a new world, all of my friends and me
its not an exact science yet, but we have the technology.
now all we need is an economy where everybody finally will get enough to eat, even the suburbs
no powers getting too crooked to stand on its own feet for much longer than it has.

So i dont want to kill a cop, what i want is neighborhoods where they don't have to get called
when the shit goes down
cause our friends, they are enough, and our neighbors have enough.
finally we're enough.

cause our friends, they are enough.
and our neighbors are enough.
and finally we're enough
please help me be enough.


fuck the law cause we're enough
fuck the boss cause we're enough
fuck microsoft cause we're enough
fuck owning stocks cause we're enough
fuck you cause we're enough
fuck moving to brooklyn cause we're enough
fuck the clash cause we're enough
fuck martial stacks cause we're enough
quit what you don't love cause we're enough
live as you make it up cause we're enough
you'll never go without cause we're enough
we'll buy a house cause we're enough
we'll grow some food cause we're enough
we'll slam some dunks cause we're enough
don't be afraid cause we're enough
you'll always be ok because we'll always be enough.

    General CommentI love this song so much, I just heard it for the first time and it's one of my favorite songs I've ever heard. I'm too tired to go into the meaning and such, but gawd I love this song and the lyrics (even though I quite like the Clash). Pat the Bunny is an incredible human.

    General CommentI'm sure it says "marshall stacks" not martial stacks.

    General CommentPretty sure "I'm burying" is "unburying".
