Well oh my my, the bank just called,
We ain't gonna make it through the fall
And you could hear those bastards laugh as they hung up.
To them this home is just a house,
While I play my game of cat and mouse,
Don't open the mail, best not test our luck.

Well my mom's work is killing her,
but you don't get what you don't deserve,
Get your broke ass back to work, and pay your debts with death.
And insurance claims all the damndest things,
But a wasp don't die after it stings,
Better off if you kill the queen, but you're never gonna find the nest.

The less you make the more things cost,
I'll cut you a break just to rip you off,
If it all sounds good on paper full steam ahead.
Old big brother might lend a hand,
But you better shake twice for a payment plan,
You wanna make an honest wage you're gonna have to beg

Well a penny saved soon goes to waste,
Ya can't dream big if the bills ain't paid,
Sit the fuck down and learn your place,
That's all they ever taught in school.
I work so hard just to be a scapegoat,
When your chickens come to roost get your ducks in a row,
You're gonna go broke if you keep up to code, but ya know thems is the rules.

Well I purge it all and I keep it clean,
I'm stuck in the middle of the in between,
Roll up your sleeves, tighten your grip, but just don't give up the ship!
