ANGRY MIDDLE AGED MAN
© Electric Babylon Music Author: M.M.
Sometimes I’d just like to die, sometimes I’d just like to live, sometimes.
Caught the bullet between my teeth, can’t believe that I have lived to be
so meek, I do the impossible everyday, I wana know what I’m worth so I
give myself away, I’m so sick of living out this death, another hopeless
sigh takes away my breath, I do the job of making money for the suit,
work my ass off just to piss inside my boot. Sometimes I’d just like to live.
My wife and family mean the world to me, but sometimes I just want to
set myself free, every man out there knows just what I mean, there’s
something just too mechanized about the whole damn scene, a life based
on some economic mirage, a good nest egg and a two car garage, I’m a
loving man but I often feel so full of hate, at the mercy of a merciless
world and a bottomless fate.
Sometimes I’d just like to live.
I saw this little blond outside Burger King, she seemed to ignore my
wedding ring, not the kind of girl that makes your dreams come true but
hey, I’m bet she could make a few bad ones go away, so I drove her
around in circles for a while, and then we parked and did the miracle mile.
The world didn’t come to pieces in fact it seemed more tightly bound, our
answers may be fiat but the world is relentlessly round, so with more to
do than suicide could ever undo, you just learn to live with the same old
fact of nothing new.
