food on the table

got a brand new car

you're willing -- and able

to make a lifetime scar

got two point two five daughters

can't remember their middle names

the days fly by like a long cold winter

pretty soon they all look the same

grey slacks, grey shirt, grey tie

grey all around

livin in a corporate shanty town

life is like cable

but you only watch CNN

if this sounds like a modern fable

then it's time for the story to end

flip around and find another station

channel after channel -- boredom is rife

when you hear the message crackle through

"i've never done a thing i've wanted in my life"

[chorus]

when you're out doing whatcha gotta do

wifey's at home yellin

"honey honey honey honey"

and when you come home

wifey is blue from screaming her demands for

"money money money money"

deep down it's time for a change

but habits and love are hard things to break

when the two are braided into one your vision is strange

so do you stick with what you know for sanity's sake?

[chorus]
