Blakfish - We Beg, We Borrow, We Steal lyrics

I'm having problems with my health and sanity
Though I know there's millions out there far worse off than me
I don't want to be content nor rich, just pissed!
And relatively free to do as I please.

I want to be six again and naive,
Play computer games and just eat Chinese.
I want to be six again and naïve,
Play computer games all day.

When I go grow up I want to be successful, rich and happy
When I go grow up I want to be successful, rich and happy

My head is still at home
My heart's not in it
I can't wait to be alone
Cook myself some dinner
If this is all these people know,
Fucking hell! They're idiots!

I've had it up to here with
The problem with my peers is
Bad education with such little expectations
And no ambition

I've had it up to here with
Young professionals
With no soul at all
They're all so comfortable
And we beg, borrow, steal

I'm underpaid and under-worked, but that's ok
Because I do as I please with my spare time on most days
I don't want to work full time
I'm almost happy with life this way
Almost happy is fine with me

Why not claim benefits?
Pop out a few unwanted kids
When all our taxes go towards cigarettes for whores
Who’s kids’ll grow up to do exactly the same as they did

Fuck all the yuppies and unemployed,
They’ve all got it wrong give them a choice
Teach them young,
To get the balance between work and fun

Society’s torn,
there is a war,
No-one think’s they’ll win,
but I’m not sure,
Work or play, slave or chain,
micro meals or gourmet?
