Healthy Body Sick Mind - Lyrics by Operation Ivy


Lyrics
Expensive vitamin pills and wheat germ on your window sill
Your schedule's hectic and you got no time to kill
You're earning money and spending it the right way
You're just in such a rush you don't know if it's night or day5:30 get up and run run run
Then you work 8 hours slaving under the gun
Your little world's based on lies lies lies
Always rushing but you're never ever satisfied
Healthy body sick mind
You're working over time
Healthy body sick mind
Too hectic, too hectic
Healthy body sick mind
It's just a matter of time
Sick body, sick mind
The money you spend on running shoes could feed men for a week
Your plans are laid so well you can't even sleep
Pursuit of happiness got your life locked under martial law
You got everything to lose so your paranoid about some fatal flaw
