Another day gone down the drain
I feel my time slip away
Always run against the clock
Run from my constant thoughts

Another week always the same
A beer and joint will keep me sane
Get my pay and I'm on the run
Back to square fucking one

I spend booze and cigarettes
While the agencies send there threats
It's okay, I don't mind
They can't tell me how to live my life

And I don't know if I have anymore to give
But each day I find the will to live
Another day and feel the burn
In hopes that I won't return

Back to square one
I am running out of luck
To pay the bills
And to find anymore thrills
