You can try to get by, investing the Jimmy Buffett way or spend your life with a knife stabbing back for executive pay. You can shoot for the stratosphere or just kick back and crack a beer but I advise you get wise, look inside and get with the program. Grubbing 'round underground trying to scrounge up authentic experience 'cause you've been given easy living all your life and now you need something more intense. Take the world in your teenage hand, tightrope walking before you can stand, but don't it blow when you know you can't grow 'cause you're not with the program? Ain't it great when your straight job lets you live your crooked little way and the haters and the sayers of the nay have hardly got any nay to say? Piss to find where the fences are or try to muzzle the dog star. Shut your hole, dig your soul and just know you can get with the program. Make a fuss 'cause it's them versus us and you're one of the good guys. Never mind, you're as blind as each other 'cause you see through the same eyes. Ritual in the stadium: irradiate 'em with uranium. Go ahead, slap each other dead and leave the rest of us with the program.
