The Lyrics

This is about several friends of mine and people I have heard about who nearing retirement and pensions get canned for newer workers. Company loyalty is nowhere near what it used to be. If you feel like you are above this, you may become the statistic. PS- Track 3 on Angel Dust, maybe the most rhymed and paced song on the whole album ( which IF you have this CD, you know what I mean )
(chorus 1)
Don't want to see last check
That's something I'd regret

A little severance
For all your genius
Bad dream is what I wish
Go on and get your dig in
I cannot stop working
I'm forty-something

Job insecurity
Co-workers mingling
Midlife crisis
Screw stupid policies
Of downsizing companies

(chorus 2)
Good worker, yes we knew
But without us you're down the tube ( you're down the )
Your unemployment starts
It can't feed enough for two

It's a midlife crisis
It's a midlife crisis

Why the indifference?
Bad perks and lost pensions
Pay me no attention
Holding my vomit back
A little severance
An honor it is not
A little severance
Got an opinion?

Sense insecurity
Holding my last payment
Midlife crisis
I'm a perfectionist
And perfect is rare to see

Good worker, yes we knew
But without cash you're feeling blue ( you're feeling )
Your unemployment starts
It can't feed enough for two

D*mn, D*mn, D*mn, D*mn

It's a midlife crisis
It's a midlife crisis

(repeat chorus 1and 2 at the same time for fade out)

I like it, but it would have been a tiny bit better if the title lyrics were parodied. Just a personal opinion based on what I try to do... check out my parody of this song, "Grade Five Crisis"

Appreciate the comment DarkJon64, but this IS the real "Midlife Crisis" so I left the parody name alone, and just added a subtitle.
