Paperwork

When I was little I just wanted to grow up, and do what grownups do
Now that I’m here all I wanna do is go back, back to before I knew
That you need an awful lot of documentation, just to be alive
You’ll need certificates and numbers for your applications, until the day you die

Look close, you gotta fill out every line
and don’t forget to cross your t’s and Dot your i’s,
You better, remember to get the proper form this time
Yeah, I feel like, stabbing this pen right between my eyes!

Oh I just wanna get higher! But I gotta lot of paperwork, paperwork!
I wanna set it on fire! But I know I just gotta make it work, make it work
You know I’d rather be dreaming and scheming, than doing all of this paperwork, oh-oh!
You know I just wanna sing but I’m screaming! Oh, I just gotta make it work~

Copyrights and other registrations, can take a lot of my time
But I can never let it slow down my imagination, I must amuse my mind!
So while I’m filling out forms, I’m dreaming up melodies; it’s what I do to get by
I take some bits of this life, write ‘em down, add a tune, and try to make them rhyme!

Look close, there’s inspiration everywhere
And don’t forget, to take it in and be aware
You better, remember to make the time to write it down
Yeah, I feel like even this paperwork can’t stop me now!

Oh I just wanna get higher! But I gotta lot of paperwork, paperwork!
I wanna set it on fire! But I know I just gotta make it work, make it work
You know I’d rather be dreaming and scheming, than doing all of this paperwork, oh-oh!
You know I just wanna sing but I’m screaming! Oh, I just gotta make it work
