lyrics

Written by Ken Taylor

He works 9-5 everyday
A shallow existence to his dismay
He’s building a future while he’s losing hope
And how could he phrase that void
That’s held in his apartment
He’s climbing this escarpment
Another uphill battle today

Why even try if the industry’s absurd
And why even write another broken verse
I’m building a family but playing with passion

I could sacrifice all I’ve got
I’ll tie my fingers into a knot
I’ll hang up the guitar and I won’t sing
I could put on a spiffy suit
I’m looking sharp
I’m taking cues
I’d rather tie my tie into a noose

Why even try if the industry’s absurd
And why even write another broken verse
I’m building a family but playing with passion

I’m playing with passion

I’m building a family, but playing with passion
I’m signing the contracts, I’m raking the cash in
I’m selling out stadiums, if you could imagine
I’m over a hill looking down from my mansion
Everyone’s leaving, my ego is growing
Load in the décor, and get the champagne flowing
A shallow existence, for a pessimistic
Person who has lost all for the stuff that he’s been given

Why even try if the industry’s absurd
why even write another broken verse
I’m building a family but playing with passion
I’m building a family but playing with passion
I’m building a family but that’s all that matters
But that’s all that matters
