​And So It Goes

This song is by Ludichrist and appears on the album Powertrip (1988).

You wake up, roll over to your alarm clock's screaming bray
'Cause it rings at 6:55AM almost every day

Rot and decay, American dream
Rot and decay, American dream

Work all your life, be a corpse
Rat race: Corpse

Rot and decay, American dream
Rot and decay, American dream

Get up, look at your ceiling which is someone else's floor
Just a quick shit-shower-shave, you're running out the door

Rot and decay, American dream
Rot and decay, American dream
Rot and decay, American dream

And so it goes
And so it goes
Work all your life and be a corpse and that's the way it goes
And goes, and goes... and so it goes
And that's the fucking way it goes

Off to your job where you work two thousand hours a year
Keep it up for forty years and watch your life disappear

Rot and decay, American dream
Rot and decay, American dream

Add in all those hours that you'll need to spend asleep
Two thirds of your life is wasted, buddy - life is fuckin' cheap

Rot and decay, American dream
Rot and decay, American dream
Rot and decay, American dream

And so it goes
And so it goes

And so it goes
Work all your life and be a corpse
And that's the way it goes
And goes, and goes... and so it goes
And that's the fucking way it goes and goes
And so it goes
