Track Name: treading water
I don't know what the future holds
But I know I can't go on like this
Trying to make ends meet working for a boss
Who I know don't give a shit

I make a little bit of money but get no respect
After I pay the rent I got nothing left
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
But I feel like I've got nothing to lose

Oh, oh, I'm treading water
Oh, oh, I'm sinking under
Oh, oh, somebody toss me a line

I see people every day tapping at computers
And I wonder what's the use
Of moving ones and zeros all day long
It don't do any good for anyone

Do they even know what it means to create
And to hold it in their hands
I don't see how they can make money from nothing
I think it's all a scam

Oh, oh, I'm treading water
Oh, oh, I'm sinking under
Oh, oh, somebody toss me a line

A couple broken windows and balaclavas
And everybody has a fit
Mass arrests but no charges laid
And nobody gives a shit

Cops are like children saying 'I didn't start it'
As they close ranks and advance
When they might as well be shooting at our feet
And telling us to dance

Oh, oh, we're treading water
Oh, oh, we're sinking under
Oh, oh, just toss us line
