track two, side A on upcoming tape release by ZAP Cassettes



(1st verse)
There’s a roof above my head, but the walls are closing in
I keep hoping things will change, but my patience is wearing thin
Locked in this routine, placid & serene
There’s a demon deep inside me that is awful and obscene
But I can’t do what I want and it’s bringing me down

Cuz everyday is the goddamn same
(everyday, everyday) is the goddamn same (x2)
with you, girl

(2nd verse)
I try to grit my teeth and I try to avert my eyes
But temptation comes to haunt me and I always tend to act surprised
These objects of desire, are making me perspire
A town of easy pickens, but I ought to stick to Dickens
And I know that these things that I want, yeah I know they’re all wrong
(guitar solo)
(repeat 1st verse)
(repeat “with you, girl” part x4)
