Worker Bee

Album: My Dinosaur Life (2010)
  • It's been a good year, a good new beginning
    I'm through with the old school, so let's commence the winning

    I've been a good little worker bee
    I deserve a gold star

    Don all the glands, black holes and lions
    The constant companions of noxious suppliers
    Carnival kings milking holiday sins
    Comas in cashmere

    It went from no good to fucked up and over
    A total distortion of life, long assorters
    Barreling headfirst, the fresh open wounds

    This I was not used to
    Now that my words don't quite do what they should
    Now that old wounds are re-surfacing too
    It makes me feel broken, it makes me feel good

    It's been a good year, a good new beginning
    I'm through with the old school, so let's commence the winning

    I've been a good little worker bee
    I deserve a gold star
    A gold star
    I deserve a gold star today

    It's been a good year, a good new beginning
    I'm through with the old school, so let's commence the winning Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
