“You can set your stuff down right
here in your new cubicle.
Look how close you are to the office water cooler.
We’ll be meeting in the conference room
about every 15 min to review our efficiencies”

You’re here because of a bad choice
One decision that lead to another bad choice

Oh how I love my bed of nails, this bitch I lay

“Remember, always stay in touch with the customer!”

You chose the apple and here you lay
One decision is all it takes

Oh how I love my bed of nails in which I lay

So I lay here in this bed
Below me lays a pool of red
My blood means nothing it’s in my head
Make better choices next time my friend
There’s nothing in my empty head

The suffering is only really time
The nail it bites into your spine
The days and hours they pass you by
Make better choices or pay the price
Or pay the price.
