Track Name: Goodbye Karaoke Nights
We made plans at a local bar right down the street
About a week and a half before you were leaving
And now it feels like tradition to me
To do that type of thing when people leave

We'll call up all the people we know near and far
No better way to honor all the time we spent at bars
Shooting shit and drinking PBR
Like karaoke songs at the local dive

One more night of 90's hits before your gone for good
We've gotta make the very best of the time that's left
All the other nights we spent have never come this
We've gotta make the very best of the time that's left

Then mid the song, the crowd agreed to get you off your feet
It was probably the most absurd thing this bar has seen
A collaboration to get you crowd surfing
To Killers songs the KJ had never heard

(sick mfin solo)

It's just something we talk about until it's finally here
I'd like to think we made the most of the time we had
One more round of 90's hits on this fateful night
Is the only way that anything will ever turn out righthat way
Track Name: Getting Paid
Ask my friends if they've got leads
Hope that they can pull through somehow
Else it's back to the corporate lock in,
Drag myself through 9 to 5 cycles

Last place I told them I played guitar
And each time I talked to my manager
He never asked me what I'd think
He'd ask me if I'd be jamming this week

If the better part of the weeks spent at work then
You'd hope it'd be more than just getting paid
But I guess regardless of how much you give it
It always seems to end up that way

And they always ask if I want it
Each and every time
Well if by want do you mean want the money?
Well fuck yeah I want some money

The job I know will take it's toll
But the pays got me locked in a stranglehold
And I've known it now for three months past
Just how long did I think this would last

If the better part of the weeks spent at work then
You'd hope it'd be more than just getting paid
But I guess regardless of how much you give it
It always seems to end up that way

If the better part of the weeks spent at work then
You'd hope it'd be more than just getting paid
But I guess regardless of how much you give it
It always seems to end up that way
Track Name: Player Piano
You hear the talk and it's common enough
The disdain of a life in the corporate clutch
They'll strip you of your habits to make you streamlined
There's a 9 step procedure it works every time

Don't think outside of the box or you'll sow doubt
Just follow all of the steps that we've laid out

Must've been so nice to pull it all apart
Must've been so nice to watch it all fall apart

Just look how cheap that this option is
We'll outsource the labor and then we'll get rich
Don't give a fuck if it means the person downstairs
Is struggling to figure out how to get by

It's out of sight and it looks good on paper
Just what the fuck are you getting for?

Must've been so nice to pull it all apart
Must've been so nice to watch it all fall apart
Must've been so nice to pull it all apart
Must've been so nice despite how short that it was

Must've been so nice to pull it all apart
Must've been so nice to watch it all fall apart
Must've been so nice to pull it all apart
Must've been so nice despite how short that it was
Track Name: FOMO
You could've fooled me
Hiding on the couch, drained of energy
You feel exhausted
And now they're asking you to come out and hang

And it's not like you don't want to go see them
You just wanna stay in
You can't escape this mess

Then there's the feeling of fear of missing out
Breathing down my neck
It creeps up slowly
Then about 9 PM, confirms it's grip

And you think of how they'll laugh at something they'll be
Talking about for weeks
While you stayed in instead

But I'm sure soon they'll put somebody in my place
Damn I gotta make it out
But I know I'll be around again, it's just a single night that I needed in
And it makes it all worth it, I gotta focus on myself

Stop feeling anxious and turn on the tv
Sink in, just sink in
Eyes feel heavy, no point in fighting that
Drift off, just drift

(self apology)
