You woke up this morning looking for a fight
Sure that everyone else is wrong and only you is right
Swearing at your latte spilling down your neck
Slamming on your brakes too late and now you’re in a wreck

How’s that working how’s that make you feel
Living like a hamster running round a wheel
Afraid of what is lurkin’ behind your closed curtains
How’s that working how’s that working for ya’

Driving down the road swerving through the jerks
Someone tries to make a left but you get through it first
Head into the office Hefe says you’re lazy
You’re fed up and you’re freakin’ out it’s enough to drive you crazy

How’s that working how’s that make you feel
Living like a hamster running round a wheel
Afraid of what is lurkin’ behind your closed curtains
How’s that working how’s that working for ya’

Is your landlord bugging you for last month’s rent
Is your neighbor asking where their New York Times went
Do you want to buy a big mac but you haven’t got a cent
Do you feel like a sinner but don’t want to repent
And you want to blame it all on the government
Maybe nothin’ got broken but it’s gettin’ pretty bent
Is everything you say not what you meant
Wasted all your time now you wonder where it went

How’s that working how’s that make you feel
Living like a hamster running round a wheel
Afraid of what is lurkin’ behind your closed curtains
How’s that working how’s that working for ya’
