Description
I've been doing Feburary Album Writing Month (http://FAWM.org) this year where you're challenged to write 14 tunes in 28 days. Well... this is my second tune done. Not doing really well with the challenge this year, ya think?? Anyway, I seem to be writing a lot about work lately.

Lyrics
some days you just click click click click on by
sometimes watching the clock tick tick tick on by
you pay your bills just to pay again
play the lottery but you never win

Drip drip drip there's more fuel from these coffee beans
Slip slip slip slip away all your hopes and dreams
out the window the view of the parking lot
Think you're getting a raise but oh wait you're not

Chorus:
You’re just moving the mouse around
You’re just moving the mess around
Not a shred of greatness can be found
While you’re ruttin’, just moving the mouse around

beep beep beep but you can't pass the safety car
now it's time to sleep sleep in a seminar
changing lanes is all the change you get
want relief? stab yourself with a glass pipette

rows and columns all waiting to calculate
but your taking your time trolling through click bate
counting zeros while moving the decimal place
Spending your days way outside your knowledge base

Bridge:
You said not forever
but you’re fooling yourself if you think you’re getting out
try to keep it all together
but you dronin' and moanin' but how would it be without
You’re another year older
but you’re stuck in a loop and forget what you're waiting for
A full manilla folder

Clever
Another good one. The lyrics are quite clever, and speak to one of the evils of the modern world. Good writing, and powerful delivery. The backing vocals are choice. Krazy synth work. Whew! Office Space blues.

Love the lyrics. There's a frantic vibe to the backing track that suits the lyrics perfectly. The mix is huge, bordering on clipping. Ordinarily I'd hear that as a problem. But here it comes off as a classic analog recording that's just pushing the gear hard and to great effect.

Yes... it is bordering on clipping. I was playing with some of the presets in Logic X for the final mix and ended up with one that had a Adaptive Limiter on it... It added like 1.5 db in places. Just made it sound a bit overdone which seemed to fit. Very perceptive!

Awesome. Tells the story of my professional life to a T. Your vocals have a hint of Danny Elfman in them, and that's a compliment. Real theatrical pathos in this thing. Your vocals are sung with passion and energy, which really take this to the next level. It could have felt jokey and flat, but you really "sold it". I'm a fan. I'll have to check out our past catalog!

Sorry to hear that it's your professional life's story! Having to live in that crazy cooperate world kinda sucks. Thanks for the comment about "selling it". I was very concerned that the lyrics would make it seem too jokey. It's something I fight with all the time. Thanks!

Nice style and mix man, drums coming at intro after piano was sweet to pick it up!

The Full Manila Folder
Whoa .. a big production like this .. I can see where it would take more days than February has to offer to knock out 14 songs of this complexity.

Great writing to capture contemporary angst. I especially like those repetitive internal rhymes .. they really pump up the drama.

Thank you!
yeah 14 songs in 28 days is very tough for me since any more when I have time to write I want to also get it recorded. And recording can take so much time. This year I only wrote 4 songs in the 28 days... and recorded 2 of them. I'm going to try and finish recording the other 2 soon. Thanks again for listening!
