Pay Raise

lyrics

Pay raise,
The status symbol that you wanted.
But daddy’s got a shotgun,
And he’s going out to blow off some steam.
Those days
Should have put me in my coffin.
But everybody’s got one.
An opinion, if you know what I mean.

I’m convinced if my worries
Present in a hurry,
I’ll try to keep my name off your list.
Everybody’s playing by their own rules
And it’s making me feel sick.

Cheap stays,
A bad decision in the making.
Where I caught my reflection,
And noticed I looked half in the bag.
How strange,
That we’re making this connection.
The fact you even showed up,
Verifies the feelings you had.

I’m convinced if my worries
Present in a hurry,
I’ll try to keep my name off your list.
Everybody’s playing by their own rules
And it’s making me feel sick.
Convinced my actions
Should have given me traction
Long before I had to fall in the mix.
Everybody’s playing by their own rules,
And you think I’m full of it.

“We’re gonna see what you’re made of”
