Have you seen those pretty signs
See the way they overshine
Those orange leaves
Blowin in the breeze

You talk on your phone when you drive
You purposely dull a sharp knife
Well I bet I'm right
You think that man will change your life

You tell yourself it's gluten free
And you worry about the calories
And still you don't lose weight
You haven't lost a pound to date

But why would you ever try
To go ahead and fix your life
Something like that might
Require some toil and strife

You break your back on carpet stains
Cause yourself anguish and pain
But you never learn
You purposely get carpet burn

You sell your soul to impress a school
You've all those grades and you're still a fool
And I guess that's fine
You'll let a number on a piece of paper
Run your life

I've tried to make you free
But why it won't work
Now I see
You don't wanna read
Those things you don't believe

I won't ever say I'll never change my mind
At least I can think for myself when it's right
No matter how many bricks or how many shits
You can build or stack in line
I won't ever give you the benefit of my life

You're thirty five and growing old
Still don't know which way to go
You're working for the man
At least you got your precious insurance plan

But this just in, Universal Care
And now you start to lose your hair
Where's the time run to
You thought the man you voted for
Told the truth

Now you sit in your bed with your family crying
You're trying so hard to avoid flatlining
But before you know, time's run out
It's time to go

You live your life, refuse to change
Now you see I'm not playing
Your life flashes before your eyes
You wish you'd done more than survive

I won't ever cover my eyes
I'll go on, prove you wrong every time
With all of those stupid games
And those stupid names
That you call me when I'm right
You work five for two of your own
And you say your life's sublime

I'll try my hardest to never say I'm right
I won't build a wall to hide my lies behind
No matter how many bricks or how many shits
You can build or stack in line
I won't ever give you the benefit of my life

What a shame to hear me sing
God forbid you use your brain
Something like that might
Require some toil and strife
