lyrics

everything is ours
nothing's really owned
no one's really gone
we're just worn to the bone
space filled up with ads
for nothing that we need
trained to all believe
we will all succeed
at living in a brick house
with a tree lawn by the concrete
that isn't even yours
or even for the trees
it's just a place for trash cans
so they can haul away your waste
but it doesn't take away the pain
why can't they take away my pain?
working forty hours
doing taxes for the company
that doesn't pay up anyway
you just hoped that one day
you'd be singing in a punk band
touring round the country
but you're stuck here in the city
just to keep you breathing
and living in a brick house
with a tree lawn by the concrete
that isn't on your property
and doesn't grow a single tree
it's just a place for trash cans
so they can haul away your waste
but it can't change the look on your face
why can't they take the blank stare off my face?
