Many Many Jobs
If I was a kid,
I'd stack them like pogs

Never did I find a place
That I wanted to pursue
A legitimate company
Seemed long overdue

Searched and Searched
Found no more
Can't be late or get fired
Really? Who's keeping score?

Finally found Verizon
Worked on the phones
Thought it was a final destination
Melted my sanity to my bones

Felt I was sufficating
My world overwhelmed
So many feelings bottled up
So much, I no longer felt
Ice Princess
Needed a recess
From all this crap
It's like someone threw water on myface
Gave me a good old SMACK

Got sent home
Couldn't go back
How on earth
Did this country get so of track

We value money over health
Companies take our brains with suchstealth
Gotta look at this and think
If I owned a company and saw employeesthis way
I could NEVER turn the other cheek

If they do,
What motivated me to find another
Nope, not again,
Got nothing to lose
Broke as hell, but I've still got honor
I'd rather go bankrupt than help themstand tall

So why am I here?
God has a reason
But to me its unclear
Everyone has a time
With their life ends
There's no more rhyme
There's no more friends
They were put here to do something,
Big or small

It's not like there's a wall thatlimits it
Got lets you know when you'reprohibited
So until the numerous small things comeup
Or I run into some ridiculous largehick-up

I'm going work to bring my dreams tolife
They're no good in my head
If I die,
No one can dissect it and say
“I'll do this instead”

Makes sense to me to take the time
The moms and pops working hoursovertime
On their own goods and shops butsomehow are still behind
I'll promote you!
My shop too!

A mall filled of homemade moms and popsgoods
Made in America, this must beunderstood
The saying “It takes money to makemoney”
Remember that when you order pancakeswith a little honey
Nothing in this world is free
If you want your kid to get a good jobout of school with a degree
Say goodbye to anything made overseas.
