It's Monday and I'm half asleep.
Eyes closed and I'm on my feet.
The nag of the alarm clock's beep sticks to me.
"... and, God, I need a cigarette."
Nod as if I'm listening.
Is money worth the hell of this? I guess.

It's Tuesday and I'm waking up,
wishing I could shake it up.
Why do I still give a fuck, I'm stuck. (toss it off, turn it off)
Running just to stay in shape.
Eating but without the taste.
It's all the struggle I can take, my crusade. (chastity, bow down to me)

If I had a want, I'd smother it...

In drugs, in love, in the taste of a girl just as broken up...
In sweat, in legs, in a fire-tower while the morning begs.
If only I, oh only I could want.
If only I were enough alive to want.

It's Wednesday and I'm getting by.
Nothing ahead nothing behind.
I smile hello and I wave goodbye.
Nothing but CBS. My life is stale, emotionless.
The laughs are fake and I hate the set, I'm a mess.

It's Thursday and I'm getting drunk.
Out on the scene with the dying young.
New dreams with the same outcomes, I'm done. (Sisyphus, give it a rest).
My life is a shopping mall.
Cheap clothes, ads line the walls.
With mannequins, I share my thoughts on God. (bent to fit and full of shit)

If I had a want I'd smother it...

In hate, in rage, in your bloody mouth where my knuckles break.
In spit, in piss, in a hurricane of words I bit.
If only I, oh only I could want.
If only I were enough alive to want.

This is all I'd want. Something simple, something plain.
Something easy, something fun, with a purpose I could shake.
And it could leave me all at once, and lay me in my grave...
regrets at bay, and all okay.

In love. In loss. in a wooden case with some flowers on top.
In thought, in naught, in a funny story you'd almost forgot.

If only I, oh only I could want.
