Life is Mostly​.​.​. (Bonus Track)

about

A bonus track because it's really just a skeleton of a song that needs a lot of fleshing out. But the rest of this is so damn depressing I thought you might enjoy something in a major key.

lyrics

Life is mostly made up of doing things that you don't really want to do
So you tell yourself,
"Hey, it's worth it 'cause all that workin'
Pays off one-to-one in leisure time"
But that's a lie
And you know it

And I've been clearing vomit
And shoveling popcorn
And cutting the grass
But mostly...hurting my back

Don't ever let 'em say it's not about the money, love
You wanted to go out in a blazing storm
Just promise that you'll always know your end game, honey
Though, you'll probably just end up going home in the end
But it's a promise worth keeping and
A promise worth keeping if you can

Dreams are mostly made up of wishes whistling through your brain at record pace
So perhaps that's why
All your hopes and fears alike in seconds' time just vanish into space
But it feels like years
'Cause that's how we spin it

And I've been waiting tables
And opening boxes
And polishing glass
But mostly...busting my ass

Don't ever let 'em say it's not about the money, love
You wanted to go out in a blazing storm
Just promise that you'll always know your end game, honey
Though, you'll probably just end up going home in the end
But it's a promise worth keeping and
A promise worth keeping if you can
