lyrics

Tilt your head back, till you can see the smile
It's almost over, it's only been a while
It's been a hell of a week, I'm so tired I can't speak
And when I sit down I begin to laugh
I sit down and I laugh

So sit down and grin, I'll let you have your way
You can do your own thing, but you've got to do it all day
And it's more work than you thought, turned a hobby into a job
It's a pity you do not have time to think
Real shame, no time to think

But what is a man to do?
With some old rusted parts, he can build nothing new
What can I do?
I'm finding it hard to pull this one through

I know your game, sit down tell me your name
I can read your face like a book, you knew what to take so you took
The tools in the box aren't plentiful like before
Take a tool in your hand and try to sharpen it more


But what is a man to do?
With some old rusted parts, he can build nothing new
What can I do?
I'm finding it hard to pull this one through
