"Working" as written by and Brian Kenig Mazzaferri....
Hey, lay low
You know
That everybody has to care
You see
That we
All feel the same way you do

Lie to me 'cause honestly
I don't believe that you believe
The lines you try to feed to me like
"Keep your head down, happy isn't free"

'Cause all the boys on the morning train can see
And all the girls with the empty eyes agree
All this working
It's not working
They graduated with a Big Ten college degree
They're frustrated 'cause it's not how they thought it would be
Sleeping, working
It's not working for me

So I stay in my seat
Try to catch eyes with those around me
But they all stare vacantly on forward
Toward a future I can't see

'Cause all the boys on the morning train can see
And all the girls with the empty eyes agree
All this working
It's not working
They graduated with a Big Ten college degree
They're frustrated 'cause it's not how they thought it would be
Sleeping, working
It's not working for me

How can I let this go?
Know only what I need to know?
Can I be only what they tell me I should show?
Oh no

'Cause all the boys on the morning train can see
And all the girls with the empty eyes agree
All this working
It's not working
They graduated with a Big Ten college degree
They're frustrated 'cause it's not how they thought it would be
Sleeping, working
It's not working for me
