lyrics

I've spent far too much of my life
Working hard on wasting time
I've been on my ass all day
I learn a lot that ruins my mind

Life is like a rickshaw
and we're pulling everyone behind
and our back's just screaming
but we tell everyone that we're doing fine

Well maybe I'm always wrong
You know that that sounds vaguely right
I'm going to tell you the truth
Everything I say is just a lie

I know that lying's a sin
I'm just a politician
I know what I think is all wrong
but I'd have nothing to think if I changed my mind

I wish I had amnesia
I'd forget before I forgave
and I remember wronging
the people that don't even know my name

I don't want to sound complaining
but time seems like a waste of time
We spend our whole lives wondering
how the hell are we going to die

Well maybe I'm always wrong
You know that that sounds vaguely right
I'm going to tell you the truth
Everything I say is just a lie

I know that lying's a sin
I'm just a politician
I know what I think is all wrong
but I'd have nothing to think if I changed my mind
