lyrics

Try and put your life into perspective
When you miss your respective
Girlfriend, boyfriend -- it never ends
Loneliness when you're not alone

And you say that you can't get a job
They gave it to some lazy slob
But everyone's getting laid off
Fuck off if you think I'm wrong

Well you could have been
A single-celled organism
On some far off planet
But you're not

You want to go to some far off place
Because around here you can't show your face
To the losers, the boozers, the stoners and whores
They're not worth your trouble anymore

You tried so hard to fall in love
And you try so hard to keep your love
The fighting, the lying, the crying, the dying
All worth it after all

Well you could have been
A single-celled organism
On some far off planet
But you're not

You try and master the art of living
But you're multi-celled, and it's hard
