lyrics

6:30 AM subway ride
from Queens to Brooklyn to the other side
I give my freedom away 8 hours a day
I'll stay even longer just to get my pay
fall down

Johnny used to work, used to work in the kitchen
he filed for workman's comp broken heart condition
when his paycheck came there was no improvement
now Johnny's gone and he's part of the movement

check to check we live in submission
failing to improve our position
so lets all fall down and get with the times
all the cool, cool, cool, cool kids
gonna do the decline
do the decline

James wont work in the cubicle
James wont work in the cubicle
James wont work in the cubicle, no more
somebody called the headline news
they said a man has decided to stand and refuse
to take any more of the standard abuse
he said "any way you look at it Jack, got nothing to lose, oh!"

check to check we live in submission ...

desperate little baby cries
desperate aging father lies
when desperate aging father lies
desperate little baby dies

who will pay off my credit cards?
who will pay back my student loans?
who'll pay the landlord my monthly rent?
who'll pay the price when they break my bones?

all the cool, cool kids gonna do the decline
all the cool, cool kids gonna do the decline
all the cool, cool kids gonna do the decline
all the cool, cool kids ....
do the decline
do the molotov cocktail
do the strike, strike, strike
all the cool, cool, cool, cool kids
gonna do the decline
