{1. KAROSHI} I was born to burn the candle at both ends putting out fires with the sweat that drips from my brow and every night I try to comfort this lonesome apartment it ain’t pretty and it lets a cold draft in but it’s close enough to my friends if I get to see them I’ll be thankful for the weekend and I will sleep in what I can’t keep in keeps me out until
I can’t keep up with the demand I supply all this time for the working day to spend it all in service of frets below and fights above all else I’m screening my calls to take up arms against despair and its defence I’ve been so covert but the ears on the wall have overheard my plan to do as much as I can but I haven’t got it down pat I’m gonna have to fix that
I’ve been going for eight days flat-out full-tilt unwavering when I’m waving my hellos goodbye for now but soon we’ll figure out where our patterns overlap if the differences detract more than we accept two courses two correct times departure and
arrival defiance and survival of the fittest kind in front but left behind why the harder you try the nights of our lives on a weekly scale in cheap fluorescent lights will pale a sickly pallor it gets worse by the hour and harder not to laugh I’ve spent time and a half fucking off on my friends if this is how my life ends cheque to cheque stipend to stipend I think that I’ll retire then to an everlasting weekend
