lyrics

Verse 1
Well I moved up to Brooklyn cuz a job it put its hook in
Never meant to go to college but (D) society insisted I did / on it

All my money goes to rent can barely scrape up 50 cents
just to tip the guy at Starbucks cuz he’s making my coffee the way I like it

This is the after-class aftermath, take a bus or ride the PATH
Walking up an avenue cuz subway cars all/they smell like poo…

A homeless man asks me what’s the point of it all
I said man I don’t know so here’s a dollar for a bottle

Chorus
Well I’m not here to save
I’m here to get paid, and slave away
This is the funeral, this is the funeral
Of the American dream

Verse 2
Went home last week, to see my friends, all four of them
And we laughed and we drank and we talked under the moonlight
[yeah] there’s not too many street lights , where I’m from, which I think I might like

And they ask me why I’m not writing music
I’m studying up techy blog posts
And they ask me why I’m not writing music
I said I’m jotting down different kinds of notes that aren’t melodic

Chock full of logic, not in my lingo
much more methodic-al
But all that I know is

Chorus

Outro
When opportunity, knocks on your door, you better open
Or wonder what if, forever

Here’s what I traded my dreams for:
Flimsy equity, and the inequity of salary

All I wanted was to be an artist
But that dream was aborted
When I clicked pay now for college

Chorus
