Sometimes those old songs that you love so much lose their ability to bring you back up when you're down. And for a bit you're resigned to your place in the universe, mundane as it might be. We always hope it's just a passing phase though.


Who wants to hear another sappy song
About the power of rock n’ roll
Or the trials of a love affair gone awry again
Who wants to hear me dedicating all my love
To a girl that no one knows
In a place I’ll never go

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the worker to the chief

And this is my blue collar anthem
For those who just don’t care
They’ve seen it all before and lived it more
And found it isn’t fair
And this is my blue collar anthem
For a dream that isn’t there

Who wants to hoist beer and come along with me
On a rock n’ roll fantasy
Where she done you wrong but it’s alright again
Find a way to get away, take this job and shove away
You come full circle yeah
But you’re doing what you can, you’re doing what you can

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the worker to the thief


Those empty words, now they’re meaning even less
When life weighs on your chest
They’re just a symbol of the innocence that’s lost
When the fun is over, now you pay the cost
