5 years lyrics – allister

Loading...

so they say there’s a better way to make it
a 9 to 5 is the only way you’ll make it
but i don’t know if i can take another day of this
working overtime to save up for tomorrow
while all their promises keep ringing out so hollow
now they’re taking all the bonuses away from me

i’ve spent a f-cking lifetime picking up the pieces
trying to get ahead but i’m still defeated
i never even wanted this at all anyway

cuz it’s been 5 years of medications
5 years of accusations
5 years enslaved in misery
5 years of dedication
5 years of aggravation
5 years enslaved in misery

it’s all the same as we get a little older
nowhere to go and too late to start all over
you’re just a number when you’re working for the
company
so play along while they rave about the stock price
and pretty soon you’ll be buying into their lies
conformity is now rewarded with the guarantee

that i’ll spend a f-cking lifetime picking up the
pieces
trying to get ahead but i’m still defeated
i never even wanted this at all anyway

nowhere to run to and now there’s nothing
that will make everything be alright
once you know that you’re never as important as the
bottom line
