{7. DO THE SUBURBAN} Lately your performance leaves so much to be desired but I don’t see any good reason for you to get fired up about it yet I think sometimes you just forget the I in team you claim to be is isolating you from me if we could talk just for a minute I think that the plan is better with you in it you’d really belong here if you just admitted you came for the same amenities that we did my friends we do the suburban try to unwind the wife and the kids are just put here to pass the time break it down to the last degree this is our only choice I’m sure you’ll agree there’s tremors in the cubicles and secretly they’re saying I ain’t afraid of no president I ain’t afraid of no see-ee-oh I ain’t afraid of no management it’s a long walk to the water cooler I needed it yesterday I need it sooner I worked hard to be a winner not a loser even though we’re not beggars we still can’t be choosers we’re caught up in undercurrents of deception like chairs of the boardroom lined up for inspection these bridges will burn us only if we let them now there’s plans on the whiteboard for an insurrection my friends we do the suburban just to survive the house and the car only help us to live the lie wake me up for the main event through the ether the message is sent down from the ranks below these troops have high morale
although their momentum is building slow it’s building this is a black mark on your permanent record
