I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that I saw on the TV
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me

I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and I'll tell you so

Super size, large fries, Big Mac, Coca Cola
Go on man, pick your poison
Speed, weed, ecstasy, LSD
Man, it don't bother me cos we're all on something

Caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol
You know I'm clawing at the walls trying to get my fix
Prozac, ADD tablets, coke, smack
Now, you know I am turning tricks 'cause

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that I saw on my TV
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me
Yeah, that they sold me

Escape, can't wait all trying to get away
From this place man that we're feeling
Can't deal, can't feel what's real
All trying to conceal all this time we're stealing

No doubt, the route you're on
Can't find the clout that you've been needing
'Til then my friend you must contend
With the monster that you're feeding

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that I saw on my TV
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me

I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and I'll tell you so

Got links of the cheney
Getting crazy, getting lazy with their foreign relations
Starting wars, closing doors
Trying to bring about one quicker man, revelations

Economic, rational, calling fouls with the workers
Just trying to make it pay
Cost cutting, head butting, big business
Do what they like and you do what they say

What's wrong get along, just prolong all the thoughts
You got going on, on the inside
Appease, stand at ease, just try to please
All the apathy that you're trying to hide

How now, brown cow
Did we get from this standing place
And now we're kneeling
'Til then my friend you must contend with the monster that you're feeding

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that I saw on my TV
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me

I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and I'll tell you so

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that I saw on the TV
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me

I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and I'll tell you so
