Here is a surf/garage rocker about life going stagnant, and being stuck in suburbian hell.

LYRICS:

Go to work, go to school, then back home to your wife.

Pack your bags, eat your lunch, then get on with your life.

This is ideal, fulfilled we ought to be.

Just another page of the same old story.


Making plans to catch up with your good old friend.

And they ask what you’ve done since high school’s end.

Your last five years were stuck in purgatory.

Beneath the surface lies a world of misery.


What more is there to tell.

We all are doing well.

When everything’s the same.

There’s nothing more to say.


Pile out, shake a leg, here we go again.

Things to do cockatoo, time to feed the hens.

Now ain’t it grand. Oh isn’t that just swell..

Erstwhile you’ve seen better days in hell.


Take the hat off the rack. Put it on your head.

Wrap that scarf ‘round your neck, wishing you were dead.

Commute to work, and have a cup of tea.

That’s the way it always must be.


We march among the horde.

To serve our overlords.

And always we are told..

We cannot break the mould.


Every day, every week, every month, every year.

As long as I’m still here.

The game that I must overcome.

Never stop, no rest, no time to think.

And I just hope for one brief little while of peace.


Go to work, go to school, then back home to your wife.

Pack your bags, eat your lunch, then get on with your life.

This is ideal, fulfilled we ought to be.

Just another page of the same old story.

I fucking love this song. It’s in the right way, you know?

The only one capable of holding that routine was Superman, but he is no longer among us...
Thanks for the lyrics
