lyrics

Zero seven hundred hours wake up call
Preceded by the hair-dryer through the wall
Cat out the kitchen, dog out the door
Sweeping up kitty litter off the floor

Hang on

Sculpting sideburns, cleaning teeth
Band T, checked shirt, faded jeans
Thirty minutes in, kick-start the troops
Dishwasher duty on a weekly loop

Hang on
Hang on

Here's a trick to make your life flash by
Like a bullet train behind your eyes
Treat every day like it's a curse
Then repeat by rote like a memory verse

Hang On

School drop off and then round the block
Couple hours prep then a longer walk
Soup, bread, fruit then a TV show
Brew a strong coffee, bring the lights down low

Hang on
Hang on

When did the sediment of grateful tears
Unwept throughout the last twelve years
Become the overwhelming taste
Turning every good thing into waste

Here's a trick to make your life flash by
Like a bullet train behind your eyes
Treat every day like it's a curse
Then repeat by rote like a memory verse
