Out of touch with yourself as the lies keep building on your shelf
You can see the reflection of the things you do in me
Out of way for you to tell them to give me the time of day
And still you live for free making disbelief
Of the fortune in my name

Did it feel just like it should?

When you pushed us all away
Just to make sure your okay
Your honesty turned to a lie
When we became your 9 to 5

Out of sight for you to live and learn
You've got me thinking you're still sound asleep
Your best in written words, now they're down for all to see
Now you're way too tongue-in-cheek
To make the rest of them believe
Even the blind can see what you do to me
And the fortune in my name

Well, did it feel just like it should?

When you pushed us all away
Just to make sure your okay
Your honesty turned to a lie
When we became your 9 to 5
I won't go out of my way
To hear what you've got to say
We must be doing something right
When we became your 9 to 5

Did it do all the things that you thought it would do?
We're singing we're still alive
Will it do all the things that you thought it would do?
We're singing we're still alive

When you pushed us all away
Just to make sure your okay
Your honesty turned to a lie
When we became your 9 to 5
I won't go out of my way
To hear what you've got to say
We must be doing something right
When we became your 9 to 5
