lyrics

Sun up, next day
still asleep but on the way
Claw time, long stay
way too many bills to pay
File in, queue up,
suck the smoke to get your cut
Chug down black cup
dead inside, you play the mutt

Small cube, big pain
Kool-aid drunk you smile the same
Your work, their gain
rank and file no need for name
Fall out, drive home
vow to salvage time your own
Dark crush, gloom zone
thankful prayer comes out a moan

There's no respite
This is your life
Sliced more each day
By the work knife
What's the payoff?
When is halftime?
Daily grind takes... another offering.

Short trip, long time
undue torture could be crime
New car, old grime,
mileage kills before it's prime
News man, short cut,
mobbed by others still get stuck
Snap rod, street rut,
ulcer forming in your gut

Old days, past dream,
ideal life now but a dream
Big plans, failed theme,
trashed to fit within the scheme
Clench wheel, cry mind,
under debts of blood you signed
Each day, remind
growing hatred for mankind

There's no respite
This is your life
Sliced more each day
By the work knife
What's the payoff?
When is halftime?
Daily grind takes... another offering.

Sun up, next day
still asleep but on the way
Claw time, long stay
way too many bills to pay
File in, queue up,
suck the smoke to get your cut
Chug down black cup
dead inside, you play the mutt

Realize too late
it's not the job, but you you hate
You chose cut bait,
when you did you sealed your fate
No more, black lie,
mirror can't see eye to eye
Right now, must try,
else you grind until you die

Grind until you die!

about

James Wyatt Houston, Texas

I now work alone, puttering with what I have and record to computer. I love writing but have a hard time actually recording. It's a fun process, even if no one really hears these songs.
