86'd in '03 02:02
It’s been years now; I’m calling off the search for myself. I think I'm comfortable with "uneasy" Is there something that could teach me? I’ve heard perspective comes in handy, but I'm not sure from where I’m standing 'Cause I’m still sick with passions and inaction, Experiments in loss studied and practiced. Self-aware, but not too cool to care. And I feel ill trading toxins for talking. Wrestling with doubt, well, it's all about shadowboxing. So don’t come a-knocking, this boy is up rocking, arms around his knees on a bare mattress/boxspring Rode home too high shouting “I Hate Myself and I Wanna Die”

I want to hear the sound of the bridgeport lathe it's metal-to-metal; it really is your basic, ordinary men, they work at Bendon Gear cos the screech of shearing metal is a-what they wanna hear foxy secretaries make a point of passing through the plant and they know you want them to show it all but you just might get your arm torn off if you look up for too long from your Blanchard Grind-All I've worked the Bessemer Converters out on Cheektowaga Plains I've even done third shift on antiquated screw machines I'd even rather work at slaughterhouses in Niagara Falls but Bridgeport Lathe has-uh got me by the balls There's no time to sneak a cigarette or read a novel by Ayn Rand and you don't have to do container work to get canned the bossman he is staring at the men, he's always near cos the screech of shearing metal is a-what he’s paid to hear I want to hear the sound of the bridgeport lathe it's metal-to-metal; it really is your basic, ordinary men, they work at Benton Gear cos the screech of shearing metal is a-what they're gonna hear I've worked the Bessemer Converters out on Cheektowaga Plains I've even done third shift on antiquated screw machines I'd even rather work at slaughterhouses in Niagara Falls but Bridgeport Lathe has-uh got me by the balls
