Liquid Truth



Liquid Truth

Don't you wonder how you got stuck in this loop -
working for the paycheck that you use to buy the suit
you say, "Well, I just got paid and my money's all gone…
fuck the rent, tonight I'm buying liquid truth"
Heyeyey

Don't you wanna go back to life before the job?
Yeah, you were broke but at least you weren't choking on the fog
and the older I get, the less I remember the plan
It's easy to lose track of time when you're putting in time for the man

Don't you wonder how you got stuck in this loop -
working for the paycheck that you use to buy the suit
you say, "Well, I just got paid and my money's all gone…
fuck the rent, tonight I'm buying liquid truth"
Heyeyey

Don't you find yourself taking work home… to the bar
and don't you ask yourself, “How the fuck I get home with no car?”
and don't tell her your musician, just because you're looking to score.
And you look deep in the drink and speak the truth, "Yo, bottle: I shoulda spilled my life on the keyboard like dadadadaaaaa…”

Don't you wonder how you got stuck in this loop -
working for the paycheck that you use to buy the suit
you say, "Well, I just got paid and my money's all gone…
fuck the rent, tonight I'm buying liquid truth"
Heyeyey

you gotta get up
you gotta get up
you gotta get up
you gotta get up

Don’t you ever ask yourself, "Did I take this job or did this job take me?"
Don’t you ever ask yourself, "Did I take this job or did this job take me?"
Don't you ever answer, "I'm a piece of shit”

Don't you wonder how you got stuck in this loop -
working for the paycheck that you use to buy the suit
you say, "Well, I just got paid and my money's all gone…
fuck the rent, tonight I'm buying liquid truth" Heyeyey

[repeat ad nauseam]

Gavin, I've been loving your new work. I listened to Pharrell Williams' song Gust of Wind today, a collaboration with Daft Punk, and I thought you would do an amazing cover of it, I feel like it would be right up your alley.
