Sick Of It All – Take The Night Off lyrics

Brutal - the big picture is so cruel to us
And everyone's life is such a tiny speck
The worst atrocities can pass. Fifty miles away to no effect

Power. Power
Has always been abused
Work. Debt. Poverty. Taxes
Life's oppressive rules
Power. Power
Just might never change
No answers will come from our bloodthirsty ways

Let's take the night off from mental stress
Let's take the night off - this world's a mess

Captive - held captive by our hopes and dreams
Our best intentions can destroy us
We shouldn't grind ourselves away
Take a break. We need to maintain

Commiserating has run it's course
We'll save the world tomorrow
We'll have to wait until that day
We'll wait. We'll wait
But in the meantime
Let's celebrate that we don't give a fuck
Let's celebrate that we don't care
Let's celebrate that we don't give a fuck
With the middle finger high in the air
Let's celebrate that we don't give a fuck
Take the night off. Pass the buck
