The Lyrics

Base on a real experience
Seven to the left of you
Zero to the right
Speak to a recording now
Might be here all night
This line’s not for people
It’s for waiting and and ignore
No matter what your need is
On hold forevermore

Maze-like call directors
There to save a buck
Corporation tightwads
Just don’t give a ........
Blood flows to your forehead
Cell minutes are burning, too
Beep! Your call is important
Someday we might get to you...

On hold On hold
Wait! Maybe a human
Will get to you.......

On hold On hold
Wait! Wasted time
Want to sue!
Yes, I just want to sue

On hold On hold
Help line shine on you
On hold On hold
Help line You’re so screwed
You are screwed!

Hum a little while
Rub your bleary eye
How you drown in music mediocrity
Patience to us all
When we’re making calls
How we drown in nihilistic hypocrisy
Push the button down
Round and round and round
We’re living insanity

Shake! We shake the phone
How we cuss so loud!
When we screech
Oh, it feels like eternity

I believe in eternity

On hold On hold
Wait! Wasted time Help line, shine on you
Spanish, too!
On hold On hold
Wait! Maybe a click! Help line, coming through!
Bars are now few! Cell gone, now dead, too

Call back, call back
Call back, call back

(Back to the top)

Hold on - Hold on
Hold on - Hold on
