lyrics

Idle and exhausted, up to nothing new
Ready for redemption, turning 32
Life is hanging heavy but you keep on going steady
Making decent tracks in yesterday's shoes

Start out with a pleasant way to pass the time
End up in an essay on a life of crime
People talk brave, but they act afraid
Oh Prudence, you're probably fine

First thing you do is you choose a career
Hup one, hup two, you're out of here
The scroll unrolls and no one knows
What one fine day they'll claim they saw so clear

The prince in the palace with the finer things
The perks and the privilege his position brings
A circle 'round him and a circle 'round them
Crowding up close just to kiss his rings

Meanwhile in the silence of a somber shack
A moldy little tomb that you painted black
Sacrifice is nice and you pay the price
These hours aren't coming back

First thing you do is you choose a career
Hup one, hup two, you're out of here
The scroll unrolls and no one knows
What one fine day they'll claim they saw so clear
