I’m not an angry man
but I just can’t stand
the luck I’ve been having lately
I’ll try to turn it around
but it all compounds
becomes impossible to shake it

at least it’s not terminal…

when you know that you’re an addict
but you just can’t put it down
when you thought they were for real
but they just messin’ around
when you thought they had the answers
but they’re clueless as the rest
you’re over it now, you couldn't care less

when your co-workers are assholes
and your boss is being a dick
when your day off comes around
and you end up getting sick
when it’s just a first world problem
but it’s still getting you down
you’re over it now
you’ve thrown in the towel

when the sky turns black
and there’s no turning back
you’re committed to disaster
it’s a perfect storm
it’s murphy’s law
you’re the bitch and fate’s your master

at least it’s not terminal…

when you’re working overtime
but they’re somehow paying less
when you’re eighty dollars down
and you know you’ll lose the rest
when the very worst decision
just seems to make itself
you’re over it now
you’re out for the count
when everyone is finished
but you’re only halfway through
when you spot that one time-waster
and the fucker comes to you
when you’re trying to fix her up
but she ends up breaking down
you’re over it now
you’ve thrown in the towel
