lyrics

never enough time
not enough life
powerless over every minute
never enough time
not enough life
powerless over every minute
envying the sleeping idiot

I want to...
don't know anymore, don't know anymore
Light myself on fire
So I don't burn out
I'd like to think
I'm above it all, above it all
but I'm deeper in this shit
than I allow myself to think

I should be making statements bigger than my petty self
but word are lost, there's nothing to say
I feel so damn small today
I'm tired of this hero shit
I just want to fall in the deepest pit
And dig my way down to the core
and sleep my way through this fucking war

I want to..
fuck it all, fuck it all
grow fat as a slave
and sing along, sing along
place my hand over my heart
and drink the oil, smother the world
take a pharma holiday
get teary eyed as that flag unfurls

I should be making statements bigger than my petty self
but word are lost, there's nothing to say
I feel so damn small today
I'm tired of this hero shit
I just want to fall in the deepest pit
And dig my way down to the core
and sleep my way through this fucking war

And be adored

why care
why not give in
be someone else
kill the human
cuz you can't
you can't
you're stuck with it
love doesn't always mean understanding

I am a fat slave
in rooms too small
never enough time
not enough life
