The Palmer Squares

"Can’t Live That Way"

[Chorus]
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Nine to five, getting by, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Punch a clock, today I die, nah
I can't live that way

[Verse 1]
Rally life I choose
Pass a pad, it's been passing through
I'm the type to type tunes
In a tight room where I fight the gloom
Site thesaurus every night 'til noon
Terrorise saloons and feeders
Ring-leader to the circus
From misdemeanors to the moving rooms, that's the purpose
Payed all dues, that's proof of the purchase
Making moves 'til we surface
Work surplus if we searching
Curtis, growing underground, that turnip
Words flowing, that cursive
Calligraphy, quit the nine to five officially
Now we go until infinity, promoting the ability
No more demotion for pay
I'm by the Ocean and bay
I'm coast to coast to the wave
Turn me up, I got somethin' to say
Yo, f*ck these jobs
I can't live that way

[Chorus]
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Nine to five, getting by, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Punch a clock, today I die, nah
I can't live that way

[Verse 2]
I'm predisposed to being overworked
It's all good man, [?] kirk
I show up early and leave in the evening
A broke j*rk in a polo shirt
Khaki slacks and a button-down
I feel like a f*cking clown
Everyone 'round here is so comfortable
Not me, I believe there's another route
Underground, rumbling thunder sound
Bump it loud, some give up, some devout
Hunker down, hunt the crown, shoutin' motherf*ck-
Shut your mouth!
Fifteen years in the work force
Now people come work for us
Got a outbox full of invoices
Big boys, no more employers
Yo, you can bet your bottom note
I won't waste my life at a job I loathe
Economic growth is an ancient myth
So Ramen noodles stay on the stove
Woah, that ain't no way to live
Anybody wanna take my shift?
I can't take this sh*t
Tell the boss he can babysit someone else today, 'cause I quit

[Chorus]
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Nine to five, getting by, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Punch a clock, today I die, nah
I can't live that way

[Verse 3]
sh*t, I'm bored
Can't get on board with this sh*t
All track, can I get on yours?
Unload that clip
Don't condone that sh*t
Old school like bones that flip
Old school like broken hip
Pow pow, now you got a big mouth with a swollen lip
Bro look, spliff and blaze it
Ain't even stay lit
'Cause singin' the same sh*t in different ways
I'm runnin' away 'til it broke back, it's so wack
Minimum wage and the notepad is lit
We live in the haze of a smoke stack
Chromag rhythm maintain with the toe-tap and sh*t
Picture me, throwback
Picture me, Kodak
[?] Prozac
Get me a drink, get me a whiskey to throw back
Get me to the corn, and get me a toe tag 'cause-

[Chorus]
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Nine to five, getting by, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way, nah
I can't live that way
Punch a clock, today I die, nah
I can't live that way
