As the Worm Turns

Album: We Care a Lot (1985)
  • One day you're thinking that maybe you're feeling better
    And you're probably an OK person, if only you had a job
    Through the hollow tombs can see them
    Through their mouths I can hear them praying for pain
    But it's only a game

    Listen, man, I know
    That things are really rough
    And everybody gets you
    And life is really tough
    But I know that deep down inside
    There's a feeling that rides
    All the way to the end

    Thursday you sit in your room with the lights turned out
    And you don't answer the door
    Friday morning looks sunny and bright
    Like it's going to be a good day
    And it would be if only you had a job

    Time is on your side, you're young
    Don't waste your time today Writer/s: BILL GOULD, BILL DAVID GOULD, CHARLES HENRY III MOSLEY, JAMES BLANCO MARTIN, JIM B. MARTIN, MICHAEL ANDREW BORDIN, RODDY CHRISTOPHER BOTTUM
