about

Are you for sale? How much are you worth?!

lyrics

I sold a year of my life for thirty-five thousand dollars,
three hundred and sixty-five days, fifty-two weeks, and nine hours...

To society I gave,
Became a working class slave,
You know I can't recall,
If it was worth it at all,
They all say, "Hey! Welcome to the real world"...

They said it came with great benefits,
They've insured me being confined to this office,
You've gotta wear proper attire,
I'm shopping in thrift stores for clothes by designers...

With my eyes open wide,
I plunged into hell,
The contract I signed,
Asked if my soul was for sale...

They all say, "Hey! Welcome to the real world"...
They all say, "Hey, hey! Welcome to the real world,
I sold a year of my life for thirty-five thousand dollars.
