about

This song is about when i was unemployed and signing on at the Job Centre in Lincoln.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Inside the job centre
Print out some jobs, take them home
Email and telephone
Attach a CV and a cover note

Applying for another job online, walking into shops with my CV x2

I have a graphics and design degree
Now I work for Costa coffee
This place is killing me, put on a fake smile, wipe up spilt tea
And what has become of my piece of shit degree

Applying for another job online, walking into shops with my CV x2

Welcome me in with a smile on your face, I am sick of your lies, I am sick of this place
You cant do right nor wrong these days
I want to fight, I want to escape
The bailiff has come to take my furniture away

Applying for another job online, walking into shops with my CV x4

Im not just sat around the house all day
I am walking through town with my curriculum vitae
I bash my face into your wall everyday
What more do you want? what more do you expect?
Of what I can do, and what I will do next.
