Sitting with a number eight platter at the restaurant
Four twenty nine for almost anything I want
Add it up it's cheaper than the stuff I make myself
I get by, I never needed anybody's help
And I tore out an ad and they told me that I

Would press the buzzer
Would press the buzzer
At the graduate lab they were doing some tests
I pressed the buzzer
Would press the buzzer

Ride a circle off the highway
Spiral into the driveway
In the maze of all prefabs
They'll be waiting at the lab

I don't know how everybody makes it through the daily drill
Paint the nails, walk a dog, pay every bill
I'm feeling sorry for this guy that I pressed to shock
He gets the answers wrong I have to up the watts
And he begged me to stop but they told me to go

I pressed the buzzer
I pressed the buzzer
So get out of my head just give me my line
I pressed the buzzer
I pressed the buzzer

Ride a circle off the highway
Spiral into the driveway
In the maze of all prefabs
They'll be waiting at the lab

They called me back to the lab to discuss the test
I put my earrings on found my heels wore a dress
Right away I knew it was like I failed a quiz
The man said do you know what a fascist is
I said yeah it's when you do things you're not proud of
But you're scraping by taking orders from above
I get it now I'm the face I'm the cause of war
We don't have to blame white coated men anymore
When I knew it was wrong I played it just like a game

I pressed the buzzer
I pressed the buzzer
Here's your seventy bucks now everything's changed
I pressed the buzzer
I pressed the buzzer
But tell me where are your stocks would you do this again
I pressed the buzzer
And tell me who made your clothes was it children or men
I pressed the buzzer

Ride a circle off the highway
Spiral into the driveway
In the maze of all prefabs
They'll be waiting at the lab
