lyrics

Standin on the corner
just tryin to stay awake
they’re handin me a story
but I know that it’s a fake
it’s always jam tomorrow
never jam today
and all the while the future
turns a darker shade of gray

I wanna scream bloody murder

Politician talkin
on the television set
his words are real pretty
but they’re easy to forget
he says he wants to help
but there’s been a slight delay
but if you reelect him
he’ll get on it right away

Businessmen and lawyers
don’t know what to do
they hear it’s getting heavy
but they hope it isn’t true
they wanna save their butts
but they’re running outta time
and they’re squeezing all the action
for the last thin dime
