about

Okay. I admit. When Lenny and I collaborate on a beat, things can get pretty complex. Good fun, though.

lyrics

FG:
This job got me losing sleep and
This job makes me lose the week and
This job got me barely breathing.
Stop. It's not what I'm needing.
Leaving the leave load, need to reload,
More than half-stepping like I'm missing three toes.
We grow fat of the cash and crap we buy
Sit back, see life is flashing by.
Push folder, push the pen.
File it away, now do it again.
Smile in the face of the wasted when
we're locked in chains like we're paper men.
And I'm living on caffeine, smokes and Codeine.
No sheens apparent coz my life's on low beam.
No dreams, haven't got a hope to show been,
Working my fingers to the bone for those means.
And it seems like, it's a clean fight,
When you look into your back account
But on a clear night, you can hear right?
Coins fall with an empty sound.
So I drop the wallet and unpress the collar.
Fuck you, boss! You're getting the cold shoulder.
Cut through gloss, not about the cents.
Wait, shit, now I can't pay rent.

This job (this job) this job (this job)
This job (this job), Yo. Screw this job.
This job (this job) this job (this job)
This job (this job), Yo. I need this job.

WISDOM2TH:
My daily grind and state of mind is,
Stop trying to find defined residing and
Here stands a kid enlightened
With experience of too much time unwinding.
I slave away at these games and movies
The thought of pay it all eludes me.
What I needs a job that suits me
So I'll introduce me, then please recruit me.
Live loosely. Work shifts amuse me,
Though my own music all consumes me.
Cut the losing's hard to do see,
Coz the thought of a degree just seems confusing.
That's why I kick back and shit stir
Old nerd who don't like his own work
Life's fine when you're trapped in a blur
But that's probably why somebody 'took ma jerb'.
Now I guess that it's pen to page slaving on a day to day,
Man I don't get how it's all a strain.
Why slave til you're old and grey? What a waste!
Maybe I should put that on my resume.
My mistake, we all want an escape,
It's a cold, hard world when you're working a trade
All the same, we all want a piece of the cake,
So these are the breaks, and yo, it's all for the sake of...

This job (this job) this job (this job)
This job (this job), Yo. I need this job.
This job (this job) this job (this job)
This job (this job), Yo. Screw this job.
