lyrics

Verse 1:
Being in jail was cool, ‘cause it was just like high school/
You know who you are, and there are well-defined rules/
Life on the outside just never worked for me/
I don’t like my new job here at the agency/

I don’t want responsibility, don’t want no one to yell at me/
I’d rather be in my cell, with the way things used to be/
And I could keep it clean, just don’t make me work for the team/
‘Cause I’m just trying to keep my own head above/

Chorus:
I don’t like the agency/x3/

Verse 2:
People at the agency can’t deal with my complacency/
So I told them, “you better be replacing me”/
‘Cause I have no ambition beyond the middle ground/
But that’s when they told me about the countless people I’ll let down/

Chorus.

Bridge:
And I’ve got lots of practice living for myself/
But everything I do in this place always/
Winds up affecting someone else/

Chorus.
