Not Enough Life To Live

-

Strive to the finish line

Then die

That's all we can do

That's all any one can do

That's not O.K. with me

I want to live forever

But that's not possible

Well, since I'm only here for a while

Maybe life should be better than this

But it ain't

It's just full of bullshit

Left and right

Everyday I gotta hear people talk shit

Everyday somebody gotta cockblock me

Everyday I don't get to have my revenge

Everyday I gotta wear a mask

Everyday I gotta see some asshole

Or some bitch, gimme a dirty look

Everyday people are plotting on me

Making me the target for their next attack

The ballad of the flying milk carton

Has a handle that I cannot hold onto

But I will bury my head in shame and remorse

Afraid of what all the little piggies do

But I will oink on the moon my way

And I may never get laid

But oh fucking well

The flying Pop-Tart in the sky will tell me

When all my suffering will end

Unless I eat it
