lyrics

my economy runs on whiskey
my economy runs on whiskey
my economy runs on whiskey, yours waddles on mcdonalds
another victory for industry, they kill jobs so i kill bottles

you're compromised and dead to rights
they're selling you that merchandise
they're telling you that it's alright cuz:
tomorrow night you'll be downsized
tomorrow night you'll be downsized
tomorrow night you'll be downsized

now no more real options remain
you're stuck in the line at a fast food chain
you take a spliff into the bathroom stall and you clean my vomit off the wall
you look into my bloodshot eyes, i sit back and apologize
you say alright, you share a hit, cuz both our lives have turned to shit

sympathy for a drunken punk is a rarity when you're fucking stuck
it's a bear trap, consumerism, you're well aware that no one really listens
got a shit job and you're sinking into debt
you scramble for a handhold that you're never gonna get
so tip back the bottle and count to three
take a healthy swallow of ol' tommy

my economy runs on whiskey...
