Album: No Cities To Love (2015)
  • The bells go off
    The buzzer coughs
    The traffic starts to buzz
    The clothes are stiff
    The fabrics itch
    The fit's a little rough
    But I suck it in
    To every stitch
    Try to fit inside the glove
    I scramble eggs
    For little legs
    The day's off in a rush

    It's 9 am
    We must clock in
    The system waits for us
    I stock the shelves
    I work the rows
    The products all light up
    If I could flip the switch
    The system fix
    I could move us to the top
    The numbers roll
    It's time to go
    I'm never fast enough

    We never really checked
    We never really check the price tag
    When the cost comes in
    It's gonna be high
    We love our bargains
    We love the prices so low
    With the good jobs gone
    It's gonna be raw

    In the market
    The kids are starving
    They reach for the good stuff
    Let's stay off the label
    Just till we're able
    To save a little up
    The next big win
    The ship comes in
    No more worry for us
    Just keep movie
    The wheels keep turning
    It's time to go pay up

    We never really checked
    We never check the price tag
    When the cost comes in
    It's gonna be high
    We love our bargains
    We love the prices so low
    With the good jobs gone
    It's gonna be raw

    I was lured by the devil
    I was lured by the cause
    I was lured by the fear
    That all we had was lost
    I was blind by the money
    I was numb from the greed
    I'll take God when I'm ready
    I'll choose sin till I leave

    We never really checked
    We never check the price tag
    When the cost comes in
    It's gonna be high
    We love our bargains
    We love the prices so low
    With the good jobs gone
    It's gonna be raw Writer/s: CARRIE RACHEL BROWNSTEIN, CORIN LISA TUCKER, JANET LEE WEISS
