Stress Builds Character

This song is by Dystopia and appears on the album Human = Garbage (1994).

Life is swell, now I want to die
My body it hurts me, sigh after sigh
I call it torture, you call it life
A slave to money and everything I despise
Like everyone in general
Fuck, eat, sleep, destroy
Just about destroy only things you fucking enjoy
I am a disposable being who will fuck all life
I multiply and the air get thinner and dirty
I take up space
I smell
I consume
But I produce nothing
I abuse
I have no reason to exist
The toilet's clogged in this world of shit
I breathe filth everyday
Living fucks up my brain
Why? why did I wake up today
My eyes are heavy
Why?..why must I see your face
Your life is ugly
Why?why do I buy into these things
I don't want them
Tension, tension
Frustration, alone
Tension, despair, tension
All these pressures on my life.
