The Lyrics

And all of's readers scream "Make it stop!" as I post more song parodies from an old disk...i guess u could call this a greatest hits compilation of! The G's cousin (whose alias is everchanging as he plays guitar for White Mystery) gave him this idea last year, considering he is Linkin Park's biggest fan (or atleast that I know). It's sung from the view of a disgruntled business man trapped in the constraints of his cubicle.
Night to day I work away
But nothing ever goes my way
The boss is so uptight today
and the pink slips are all he's got left
I don't know what stresses me worse
than working 'til I wish I was dead
but I know just what it's like
to fill out an invoice in red

I'm tired all day when I work inside
In this cubicle I'm confined
Office space it's hard to find
Just work here and then you'll know why
The boss watches everything
So I know that when it's time to go clock in
The boss will be there watchin' me too
Until this work day ends

It's like this day at work will never end
I don't know how much time at work I spend
When I put letters in the outbox they put more in
But I better do my job or I'll get skinned

The sun goes down
Go home, prepare for day 2 (repeat)

it was pretty dumb. timing was off in the refrain (i mean, come on!) and not even that interesting of a song.
