Stopped for gas just the other day
Rushing around in the usual way
Got out started shaking my head
Right there on the pump another t.v. set
Don't remember what he had to say
Just another person yelling and selling
Trying to get paid
His mouth kept running I got into my car
Turned on the radio but I didn't get far

One man tries to sell me a phone
Another man tries to tell me I'm wrong
A stranger says I don't know how to live
Wait
That's the government trying to sell its innocence

I don't need a way to have it all
What I really need if that's OK is just to pause
I'm not a slacker if I don't join your cause
So I think I'll take a break from you and just press pause

Email, Facebook now they're texting me
Voicemail, faxes
Yeah they still use them things
Bush taught Obama to record it all
Don't say I'm hard to get if I don't take your call
So called news man playing his part
Reading a script
Propoganda's an art
Advertising ain't just for selling things
Hearts and minds it's all about psychology

One man tries to sell me a war
Another man tries to tell me I'm poor
They're training up tools in the government schools
They give a kid a condom but praying
That's against the rules

I don't need a way to have it all
What I really need if that's OK is just to pause
I'm not a slacker if I don't join your cause
So I think I'll take a break from you and just press pause
