lyrics

Ah, I gotta make a decision
I got no lack of ambition
But what's it lacking from me?
Ah, where's the money going?
I didn't want to get rich
But son of a bitch
I think somebody's getting rich off me

Hewers of stone, and drawers of water
Think I got an aptitude
Will I forever be bound in the direction that I choose

Better get up
Career opportunities
Better get up
I'm talkin' 'bout career opportunities

Ah, the human cannonball
Sweating in the barrel while I'm waiting for the match to fall
Some kind of mistake--is this the wrong day?
Maybe nobody was ever holding any match at all
Ah, I wasn't born to lose
That's why the whole situation's got me so confused
The going gets tough, they say the tough get going
The rest of us get screwed

I'm in the aisle of the all-night grocery
So fuckin' hungry I've forgotten what I want to eat
Then I remember again, but I'm back in the street

Better get up
Career opportunities
Better get up
I'm talkin' 'bout career opportunities

Ma, I think the other kids know something I don't
It's like they don't ever wonder when they're all alone
And I thought I knew too, but that was some time ago

Better get up
Career opportunities
Better get up
I'm talkin' 'bout career opportunities
