lyrics

I’m breaking even if I’m lucky
I work relentlessly
I’m constantly at war with my own head and it’s winning
Pride is not expensive (No it’s not)
Dignity is cheap (Yes it is)
I think it’s safe to say that if I walk away
I’m not giving up the dream

I’m going to quit my job
And I suggest you quit your job
Then go and find another job
So you can quit that job

Hand in those TPS reports (No I won’t)
And throw away the thoughts (Yes I will)
Of everything that you used to love
And back away from that shotgun
And prescription drugs

I’m going to quit my job
And I suggest you quit your job
Then go and find another job
So you can quit that job

I’m a rat in a lab
I’m an itch on your back
I’m an ant under your magnifying glass
Wipe that smile off your face
Because the world is on your case
The poor are poor and the rich are broke
Life’s a joke and you’re in life

I’m going to quit my job
And I suggest you quit your job
Then go and find another job
My own economy
Take everything for free
I am not an anarchist
But soon I’ll have to be
I am not an anarchist
But soon I’ll have to be
