So 2013 is turning out to be quite the bitch
Kinda wish this world would have ended last december
Or maybe it did and this is hell
Maybe it did and this is the apocalypse

Didn't think the economy could get any worse
Guess I was wrong again
Seems corporate America is taking over
If it's not corporate, it's not worth a bail out

Really shouldn't have to worry about whose
Gonna get shot up next
Parents shouldn't have to worry like
They should be able
To send their kids to school
Not have to worry if they'll seem again

Really wish the politicians would stop fighting
Wish they could agree on something
Maybe then the world really would end
Things shouldn't happen like this
