Slave To The System

out of cash, I spent it on gas
off to work I go
I really wish I could
watch my children grow
just 40 more hours
I’ll earn half of the rent
another 40, I get
a check already spent
Just 80 more hours,
I’ll pay for water and heat
buy a bit of food
so me and the kids can eat
my second job buys insurance,
more food, and some clothes
the more I think about it
I think that this really blows
out of cash, borrow some for gas
off to work I go
oh how I wish I could
watch my children grow
