Fish — Mission Statement lyrics

I punched the clock in at 35, I thank the lord that I'm still alive, sometimes I find it hard to believe that my hearts still beating that I'm still on my feet,
I'm gonna give you, gonna give you a mission statement.

I've been in a downward spiral for a very long, long time, I've been stepping over dollars just to pick up a shiny dime,
The way I see it, it ain't gonna work, I'm kissing the past goodbye,
I'm gonna give you, gonna give you a mission statement,

I got no more patience, got no more time,
I'm tired of following orders, sticking to the company line,

I want to change the world and I'm starting with myself,
A private revalation concerning everybody else,
We're all just lonely people we're all looking for some help,
Too busy crunching numbers and fighting for ourselves,
All it takes is kindness and a little love and care,
And this planet that we live on can be a heaven we can share, a mission statement.

The tears of hungry children are falling in the dust,
The scraps of a rich man's table could fill their starving mouths,
While some they thirst for water others get drunk on wine,
To some their lives a prison and they're out there doing time,
I'm gonna give you, give you a mission statement,

I got no more patience, I got no more time,
I'm tired of following orders, sticking to the company line

I want to change the world and I'm starting with myself,
A private revalation concerning everybody else,
We're all just lonely people we're all looking for some help,
Too busy crunching numbers and fighting for ourselves,
All it takes is kindness and a little love and care,
And this planet that we live on can be a heaven we can share, a mission statement.
