The Ocean - Asslickers, Inc. lyrics

Do you remember that certain afternoon
when you were a kid
and your dad put his hands on your shoulder and said:
"son, if you wanna make it big,
you'll have to lick many asses...
be sure to pick the right ones,
but don't be too picky"
I don't envy you, I have to say
most of those asses were not even shaved

Your new life suits you better
this tie wrapped tight around your throat
your head turns red and when you're just about to choke...

Then all your posh business friends
all these fake bloaks
with their swiss watches, plastic smiles
and their new armani coats
they will remember every promise you broke
and they will be there to tighten the rope
while you scream:
"I thought we were all in the same boat!"

Your new life suits you better
this tie wrapped tight around your throat
your head turns red and when you're just about to choke...

Return of investment is all you see
you rationalize all content away
and what's left is nothing but the most generic shit
that has been there
a million times before
are you aware that
this will be your legacy?
and this will haunt you forever
until the day you die...
this is all that you will be remembered for

It's surely nothing new
that music has turned into a commodity
but if today it is predictable through and through:
it's because of people like you!

You ruin everything
You ruin everything
You ruin everything
with your great new business plan
