Well I haven't been here in a while but a recent spell of what I think they call "a shit time" has tickled my songwriting fancy again and I figured that there would be no harm in getting feedback from others. So here's my 'Modern Perspective'.

[Verse 1]
It's time to drink because tomorrow's getting near
And this incessant noise of daily life is trying to chew me up and shit me into a grave
I'm tired of waking up aware of who I am
I'd rather be a bit confused and make my way to the nearest open door

[Verse 2]
See last night I had a bug crawl in my mouth
And it got me thinking about my own mortality
That we're all fragile bags with life implants with a fate that's bound by circumstance
And we love so much to forget that's true

[Chorus]
But of course I'll wake up, brush my teeth, step on the tube
Count the seconds til I'm at my desk and had myself a coffee or two
Then I'll glance down at my watch and I'll feel a chill down to my bones
Oh look it's 8.05, only 40 years to go

[Verse 3]
I've grown exhausted wishing that I could change
That there was rhyme or logic to the things I've said or the way that I've behaved
I can see ahead to when I'm 53 and I've paid off all my debt
But I could make a list right now because I know exactly what I'll regret

[Chorus]
'Cause I'll wake up, brush my teeth, step on the tube
Count the seconds til I'm at my desk and had myself a coffee or two
Then I'll glance down at my watch and I'll feel a chill down to my bones
Oh look it's 8.05 and I can't do this anymore

[Instrumental]

[Outro]
So, here's the challange
I'm in a hole, I've got to dig,
I know I won't strike gold
But it keeps me busy,

and that's the trick.
