Silly Lives

Story Behind The Song

I have always dreaded the thought of sitting in a cubicle day after day filing stacks of useless paper and listening to the pointless banter of grumpy co-workers. Right before I wrote this song I had applied on two separate occasions for the same position

Verse 1
You're so bitter
Precious life if passing by
You're desk is littered
But dusty post-its just can't hide the way you feel
Your nightmare's coming real

Everyone is waiting for the answer to arrive
Blinded by their silly lives
Caught up in the paperwork and useless 9-5
It's too late
Can't escape

Verse 2
Dirty city
Its subtle lies have sucked you in
The subway's pretty
But it won't help you get beyond the sparkling lights
Won't feed your appetite

Everyone is broken
Same excuse unspoken
Never had the chance
To toy with life's romance
And now you're wishing you could take it back, take it back, take it
