It’s all turning out to be such a scene
What I thought reality really just wasn’t me
Busting my balls working 9 to 5
Worrying about my bills and how I’d survive
On my own and all alone
With my ma telling me how big I had grown
When all I really wanted was art and rock n’ roll
It was from my heart and it was from soul

DEEP, DOWN AND DIRTY INTO THE SEWER
WASHED AWAY WITH THE PISS AND MANURE
LEFT LOOKING FOR CLEAR WATER TO SWIM
JUST TO GET OUT OF THE MESS THAT YOU’RE IN!

Society says that I’m against their grain
Jittery and self-conscious they label me insane
Trying to make me scared of what I really wanna do
They say, "if you don’t make cash
then you’re definitely screwed!"
But if I don’t do what I want
I’ve gone deaf, dumb, and blind
With no control over hands or even my mind
Searching inside for something I might never find
All because of some bullshit financial bind!

DEEP, DOWN AND DIRTY INTO THE SEWER
WASHED AWAY WITH THE PISS AND MANURE
LEFT LOOKING FOR CLEAR WATER TO SWIM
JUST TO GET OUT OF THE MESS THAT YOU’RE IN!
