Are you proud
Of your life's achievement?
You've been sitting there
In your underwear

You've allowed
Your standards to falter
Like you'd even care
Will you ever care?

And when you lay your head to sleep
You count a dozen lazy sheep
And make a plan for nothing the next day

So you finally close your eyes
The days events to memorize
But in your mind there's nothing there to stay

Are you proud
That your parents still love you?
Kept that roof above you
'Till your forty five

Hang around
In your room in the cellar
There's a funny smell there
Are you still alive?

When you finally go outside
You look so pale that children hide
You go to town to find a game to play

A girl you once knew passes by
By miracle you catch her eye
But in your mind ther's nothing there to say

Are you proud
Of your future uncertain?
When you part the curtain,
is the view sublime?

You've allowed
Your whole life to falter
Offered at the altar
of wasted time

Are you proud...?

How could you be?
