lyrics

Get a job, get a job, get a job, get a real job
Turn it off, shut it down, it’s so loud, gonna pull the plug
All your dreams gone to waste, and you know not gonna happen
Moving out, go to school, pay your bills, gonna lose my mind
Welcome to the game that is life
Welcome to the game that is life

They say, “Life’s a gift”
But I don’t recall asking for it
It’s a game where everyone’s against you
Keep your eyes on the light through demise
Don’t listen to the heartless charlatans
They will take you down to their level
You got to look to the light through demise
And make your life worthwhile

Turn it off, shut it down, it’s so loud gonna pull the plug
All your dreams gone to waste and you know not gonna happen

Life is a simple enough concept
All you got to do is find your place
Simple, sure, but it’s never easy
No one ever wants to keep their space
No one cares about your plight
Welcome to this game that is life

No one cares about your plight
Welcome to this game that is life
Life can be such a challenge
But it is a one-time trip
And it won’t happen, no, it won’t happen again

Life is a gift, it’s a test, it’s a game
But no one even seems to know how to play
Why can’t anyone just say how it is?
If we can’t understand, then why even try to pretend?

If we can’t understand life
Then how can we do it right?
There may be no correct answer
But I don’t want to spend the rest of my days searching it out
All we can do is be honest in the here and now
