Workaholic

by Sarah Brindell

Get up out of bed and take a shower
Drink your morning cup of coffee
Sit in traffic for about an hour
If you’re late don’t let the boss see
Enter words in a computer screen
Wishing it all would go away
Go home drink a beer and watch TV
Wake up and do it all again

Do it all again
Do it all again

Captured by the chains of the machine
Keepin your place in line
What will bring an ending to this means
When you don’t wanna fall in line?

Don’t wanna fall in line
Don’t wanna fall in line
Don’t wanna fall in line
Don’t wanna fall in line

In a sea of discontent
You swim around completely spent
Find a way to pay your loans
Brake your back to save your bones
Workaholic can’t you see
The water’s rising and you can’t breathe
Will you never believe you could be free?

You could be free
You could be free
