It All Makes Sense At The End

from by Quiet Desperation



The radio alarm went off again
Don't bother reaching for the snooze
I hear an hour of interviews and then
I finally kick the covers loose
I take a shower, eat, and go to work
And my mind is numbed by the tedium
I come back home and turn the TV on
Contemplate the day
Go through the motions again

This life is not what I'd call wonderful
Trapped in a modern Bedford Falls
Still, Pottersville could be desirable
If I could break out from these walls
I could use some color in this place
Any glimmer of hope to stop this trend
But Zuzu's petals have me shackled here
Clarence, take me away
I need a new happy end

You bust your ass just to break away
Then you're caught up in more red tape
They never said there's more dues to pay
Then you're thrown in the Cooler
Left to plot your Great Escape

Exchanged my passions for necessities
My dreams and wishes put on hold
My freinds keep getting opportunities
And I'm left standing in the cold
Hope it's not too late to make a change
When it's over, I'll laugh among my friends
If ever I get out of here someday
Hope that I can say
It all makes sense at the end
