Surrounder: Potato Man

 

It don’t mean much
But I worked beside her
Still wish I had known
To see her off

In all her 60 years
They had time to work
Her to death

But all I got was a fucking text:
Can you come in on Monday for
The shift she left?
I should take it and call in sick
If I weren’t already short
The goddamn rent

Sell my time
To spend time

Stranger in my cage
Smile at for minimum wage

Split my day in two
But what if I’m sad today?
Need more than just half today

I’ll take you to work
And I’ll get you from work
And grab a drink
Potato man
I’m a vegetable to the core
More than I can stand

I just wanna stay up
Til sunrise
I worked the night that
Leonard Cohen died
A schedule numb to
Every surprise
I worked the night that
Leonard Cohen died

I still feel like a fucking slave
Even though they say they’ll
Pay me more
After 90 days
Potato man
I’m a vegetable to the core
More than I can stand

I’ll take you to work
And I’ll get you from work
