Lyrics
This is not what I had planned.
The passing days are not so grand,
the Maseratis and the mansions
are just castles in the sand.
What I've got to get me by
are my ambitions and a tie
I wear to work; a well-paid jerk,
I'm so successful I could cry.
I work all day and still
I'm stuck here on my a**.
I'd run away but
I keep smokin' too much grass.
Lord, give me patience
and I need it fast,
oh all this too shall pass.

Pay my bills and feed my face.
I'm living large in second place
'cause I know soon I'll own the moon
and live the life in outer s***e:
A rocket ship to get me there,
a golden iPod, that seems fair.
Then I awake- oops, my mistake,
my motto still reads "I don't care."
It's not like there's too many walls.
It's not like I don't have the b****.
It's just that I, well, I don't know how
to live my life in the here and now.
I'm punching out, it's time to go.
My days are numbered, this I know,
but as it turns out no one burns out
'till they think they're in control.

I work all day and
take my time to smell the grass.
I'd run away but I know
I can't run that fast.
Life may be short,
but boy is it a blast
and all this too shall pass.
This too shall pass.
This too shall pass.
