Track Name: Coworker
I dread pulling the same shift as you
cause I don't wanna try to act aloof
it's hard cause my heart is telling me to
try and take my chances with you
but i dont wanna hurt myself anymore

what's the point of love
if you cant see beyond just being together
a swandive to a life of
codepency, for the life of me
i dont want that, i dont want that
but i can't look at your skin and say
im not in, the whole attraction
pursuit of satisfaction, in life
partners make everything easier in the begginning
but it gets impossible at the end

that's why i dont wanna even bother and

I dread pulling the same shift as you
cause I don't wanna try to act aloof
it's hard cause my heart is telling me to
try and take my chances with you
but i dont wanna hurt myself anymore

but doesnt stop, from being significantly
nicer to you than the other coworkers
it just feels good, to see you feel good
and i want that, and i want that
but doesnt mean i have to be a fixture in your life
right, i don't need your undying affection
i tell myself, that this is easier
lie to lead, simpler one at least

that's why i dont wanna even bother and

When I am, near you
i wanna, tell you
what im feeling, but i know
its no use, confusion
is all that can come from
you knowing
Im trying to preemptively
move on, and that is why
i've been awkward as hell round you
Track Name: I Wanna Quit My Job, But I Don't Wanna Quit My Job
I clock in, I clock out
I don't realize its been a month
then a year then two, then next thing you know
they're askin me too, stay to more

look at the offer, not that bad
than past me called, calls me mad
What about your dreams, to be a rock star
name for yourself, and just going far
away from here
the ratrace you fear

but i've gotten comfortable with this life
it aint much, not isnt nothing at all
I can see myself living out the days
just workin 9 to 5, going home to video games

I log in, I log out
and i look down, what have I done
with my life (nothing of worth), with my time (wasted my youth)
with my oppurtunities (ungrateful bastard), but what to do?
everything disappoints
and i have no fucks left to give

and i've gotten comfortable with this life
it aint much, not isnt nothing at all
I can see myself living out the days
just workin 9 to 5, going home to video games

facebook, twitter, youtube, tumblr
instagram and vine, and whatever in vogue that makes me fine
so i dont have to deal with real world
someday i will have to change
someday i will have to be more than myself
but that day is not today

and i've gotten comfortable with this life
it aint much, not isnt nothing at all
I can see myself living out the days
just workin 9 to 5, going home to video games

Walked past HR, caught in a daydream
about giving my fabled two weeks notice
