The race is on to handle the ever-mounting pressures of life.
Its like same shit but a different day/ dragging my ass out of bed, packing my lunch that I made from yesterdays dinner plate/ getting to work and I feel worse coz I’m late and my boss is onto my case/ busting my balls like a pool break/ I need to make moves that include having my dues payed and a few rules that improve my chances of turning a new page/ my shift is through but I spew it’s only been Tuesday, so my temper just blew like a can of flammable butane/ I’m feeling time get shorter, feel upside down in a tank of water, escaping a straight jacket, in order to put clothes on my daughter/or maybe I order get a new job to support her instead of following orders/ coz I’m a desperate man/ jumping boarders and hoping onto a land, were all is supposed to be grand but all is mostly a scam/ but if I could just follow the plan/ it could be all over I just hope for the chance
I feel my life is a race/ right now I feel like the floor’s made of a clock’s face and I’m chained to the 12 and I can see the hands as they, pass from a 7 to 8/ have to brace for the pain coz those hands are made from a razor blade
I pull my sleeves up, slap chalk on my hands like a dead lifter, but the fucken weight of the world is too great/ I need change/ or at least I need a decent pay raise like I asylum seekers that’s needing their VISAs/ and if indeed leaving this cage means I need to succeed, needless to say, I need less needs for fleeing this cage/ cos these days I feel weak at the knees praying, like demons are leaning in erasing my dreams as I say them/ I here trying exceed, heaving and trying to achieve/ in need positive leads to proceed confidently/ so my competency ultimately would leave me living at least moderately, if not, comfortably/ but have you ever felt life was a race?/ a rollercoaster without the holster or arm brace/ feel like a chump every time you do what your boss says/ you can’t afford to be pumping breaks in this car chase/ you know what I’m saying when I say
