Day by day it smells worse in the cherry bowl
Look to the left now look to the right
What a shit hole. hey straight “a” student,
What did you learn in school?

Did they teach you how to use a shovel?
Another day you get on to pay your dues.
When you get ahead I’ve got news for you.
From the clay god made an honest man.

Me and you we’ve got a lump of shit.
So start digging. asleep at the wheel.
Me and god we’re gonna strike a deal.
Stay with me you will never feel the

Same again. reach into me, you know
This game. start digging. you want to be
Free (just a little tipsy let’s party!)
You fucking stupid piece of shit, snap

Out of it and start digging. you want to get
Through the pearly gates. you want to stay
Up late, you want to be cool, in the rolling
Stone or MTV. close you eyes and go to sleep. breathe deep. the clock keeps ticking.

Wake up, start digging.
