Down With It

lyrics

Coulda sold my soul for a couple of bucks
And not feeling like I'm down on my luck all the time
But where's the fun in not hating wasting
All of your time and your life working a nine to five
You're either in or you're out
Or you're up or you're down
Or you're flat on your face

Sometimes I feel like shit
For clinging to a structure
that takes everyone down with it
The faster it falls, the harder you grip

Haven't worked a dime in well over a year
And hell I gotta say it makes no difference
With every kick down you make and every purchase
Keeps on spinning the wheel they got it locked down real perfect
Free to do what you want
Yeah free to sit on yer ass and pretend
Like what yer doing's much better

Sometimes I feel like shit
For clinging to a structure
that takes everyone down with it
The faster it falls, the harder you grip

You could work your way up or you could make it
To the top of the ladder what you're doing don't matter
Don't take control of your life cuz you could give it up
To somebody else who'd get to use it much better
Yer only worth what you make
For a reason you hate and there ain't no escape

Sometimes I feel like shit
For clinging to a structure
that takes everyone down with it
The faster it falls, the harder you grip

Both members have musical projects of their own, but when they create music together the product is greater than the sum of it's parts. ... more
