It’s somebody’s job
To cut your heart out
And you may
Never come out
But if you do or ya don’t
They’re still gonna pull your chart out
You’re a name on the board a bed in the ward

It’s somebody’s job
To make your clothes fit
Though they may
Never see it
But if you’re small or you’re large
They’re still gonna guarantee it
You’re a cog in the wheel so how does it feel

It’s a party and we’re all invited
But no one is very excited
You can’t stop it but you can fight it
I’m savin’ up for a new feeling so come along

It’s nobody’s job
To make ya happy
And ya may
Never be happy
But what does it even mean to be happy
You’re a stain on the floor and a knock at the door


And it’s somebody’s job
To move your garbage
And they may
See what you discarded
If they do or they don’t you’re still just a garbage artist
Garbage in garbage out, within and without
I’m savin up for a new feeling so come along
