I work in a cubicle everyday
I have no life but I’ve got pay
The tick-tock tick tocks endlessly
The walls grow teeth and munch on me
And lately I’ve been thinking about quitting my job
And traveling
Tell me people what you think I should do
Quit or stay?

I work in a cubicle hour after hour
I’ve got no soul left to deflower
My senses sleep, I’m a wind-up toy
I’ve got as much soul as a Backstreet Boy
And lately I’ve been thinking about quitting my job
And traveling
Tell me people what you think I should do
Quit or stay?

I’m one brick in a skyscraper called corporation
I am one stroke in the rich man’s masturbation
I am one runny snot in a kleenex full of tools like me
Is this the way a thinking man’s life should be?

I’ve worked in a cubicle for twenty years now
I’d show some emotion but I forgot how
I could be Brad Pitt’s fight club and kick some ass
I need a raise and promotion and my car needs gas.
And lately I’ve been thinking about quitting my job
And traveling
Tell me people what you think I should do
Quit or stay?

It’s gonna take more than a catchy song
To give this good paycheck away.
