I am the economist
my worst fears all came true
dear all the snakes that i have met
I wave white flags to you
and it’s a long long way to the foot of your bed
it’s been a long hard day and I can’t ever get you alone
how do I get you alone

and if I go away, can i ever go back, can I ever turn back? no
new knives that I can’t escape cause I ain’t living in the black
I ain’t living in the black, I know
I could never make it alone

the faucets leak, the floorboards squeak
I’ve found my place to live
woke up riding shotgun
felt that daylight creeping in
it’s been a long hard day take me out to the back
I think I lost my way but honey you got the map, I know

I just wanna be good at something I like
something I might wake up for
cause I’ve been sleeping so long
I’m up on a stage or minimum wage
scream myself hoarse

and if I go away well I won’t wait, no I can’t wait
turn around and you’ll get replaced
no I won’t wait forever, no I won’t
