Get up at five o’clock go to work.
Fell like shit, too little sleep.
Gotta get to work on time or I’ll get fired.
Why am I always so fucking tired?
Working life’s going nowhere.
I’m digging a deeper hole!
The further I go the less I get.
The problem is no one ever gains.
Why should I be useful, I don’t need your job.
Why should I be useful, you’ll just use me up.
Why should I be useful, I’m just a useless slob.
Why should I be useful, when I can be your pain!
Got a raise today, I’m moving up.
Landlord raised the rent again, oh fuck!
The bank will loan me lost of money,
but I can’t make the payments on time.
Boss has to lay me off, business’s slow.
30 day eviction notice, not again!
Back to sleeping on my friend’s floor.
I’m better off when I have nothing!
Why should I be useful, your world’s a great be game.
Why should I be useful, I don’t wanna be a puppet.
Why should I be useful, I want a life of my own.
Why should I be useful, then you won’t hat me!
Why should I? Why should I? Why should I!

They were a product of the startup remote scene in Tucson, AZ. ... more
