Growing old

This grown up stuff gets more complex
than the super ego and the id
We never have much time for sex
I don't know how we ever did 

Full time schedules
Traffic is always hell
No matter how much we scream and yell
We are running on fumes and the mirror tells
I'm at my wits end, 
I live for the weekends

Wake up late, drink some tea 
I turn  off our phones 
I pray no one wakes me
I don't want t.v. 
I don't want food to eat.
I just want to sleep

    That's cool. it reads like a gripe from the old man himself. extend the lyric by putting him in his favorite chair!
