Am so very lost here

this is meant to feel like home

but i feel so very queer

so silently alone

 

am rather misunderstood

in this commercial tornado

secondary to be good,

must financially grow

 

my conscience is screaming

but it's okay

it won't be heard

and so i'll eventually obey

 

and learn all the skills of success,

how to juggle it all

and continue to impress,

to climb the shiny wall

 

time to help make profits

climb up the infinite ladder

we're high flyers, we made it

who cares if we're sadder

 

apparently without financial ambition

one is a failure

but a star with commission,

an independent saviour

 

 

but i couldn't give a shit

about a stupid label

i'm fed up with it

this materialistic fable

 

that everyone's caught up in

so i seem like the freak.

urgh faking this grin

is making me so weak

 

there's nothing i can do

but wake up at seven

happily work through

until about eleven
