​Handshake Meet Pokerface

This song is by Less Than Jake and appears on the album GNV FLA (2008).

For over half her life she's worked from 9 to 5
Crossing t's and dotting I's, the neon lights can't hide that she's lost her shine
She says the mornings always taste like turpentine
She said she understands the point of sacrifice and so should I

Pay cut but it's a paycheck
Surviving is my best revenge
What hurt you once won't hurt you again
She meant what she said

Weathered lines across her face were an even trade
Fingerprints worn down from overwork and underpay at minimum wage
She said the overtime is worth these aches and pains
But is it worth the precious time that ticks away every second, every day?

Pay cut but it's a paycheck
Surviving is my best revenge
What hurt you once won't hurt you again
She meant what she said

For over half her life she walked the straightest lines
She only wanted to provide a future for my brother and I

Pay cut but it's a paycheck
Surviving is my best revenge
What hurt you once won't hurt you again
She meant what she said
