IT'S ALL WRINKLED ELBOW SHIRTS AND POKER FACES ON THIS BUS
BACK TO A NOTCH DUG JUST LIKE A DITCH IN THE CITY'S WEATHERED CRUST
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE CITY'S GRAY
THAT SEEMS TO SAY ALL THERE IS TO SAY
RIDDLED WITH REGIMENT, VINDICTIVE INTENT
FAKING LOYALTY AND GETTING PAID
FUCK THEM ALL, Fuck em' all
SHE KEEPS THE VARIETY SECTION AND SHE GIVES THE REST TO ME
SHE SAYS SHE REMEMBERS WHEN BUSES WHERE NICER
"THERE'S NO DIGNITY IN PLASTIC SEATS"
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY SHE SAID
"THE ONLY GOOD BOSS IS ONE THAT'S DEAD"
THESE BROAD SHOULDERS GIGGLED ALL OVER THE BUS
AND WORK ETHIC CRUMBLED INTO "THEM AND US"
FUCK THE ALL
AND ALL THESE SPECTERS OF THE WORK PLACE
TURNED FROM EDIFY BACK TO REALITY
AND YEAH I WISH IT WAS THAT SIMPLE
TO THINK A BELLY LAUGH IS REALLY ALL WE NEED
BUT IT'S THE SLOW DECAY FROM THE DAY TO DAY
THAT SAYS TAKE YOUR PAY CHECK, ACCEPT YOUR PLACE
AND FADE AWAY
BUT THERE WAS DIGNITY IN PLASTIC SEATS THAT DAY
