lyrics

I work at my stupid pizza job
Throw cheese on the 'zza
I get my paycheque every two weeks
That I don't get to keep
And I wake up day after day
Just to waste my life away
And I dream of a sunny place
And I dream of a sunny day

Chorus:
I'm a wage slave...
and I'm wasted

I walk around this place in a dream
I'm high on caffeine
And when I get home I get stoned
Ease my aching bones
And this pounding in my head
I'd rather be dead
And I dream of a sunny place
And I dream of a sunny day

Chorus

Yeah, my boss: he's a jerk
He gets rich off my work
But he's just a pawn in the game
Whatever you do it's the same
'Til the day you hit the grave
You're bound to be a wage slave
I dream of a sunny place
But sometimes it seems so far away
