The Lyrics

Glasses + hot fryer = CAN'T SEE SHIT, CAP'N.
Foggin' up from steam
Ev'ry window pane
Means those on my self
I can't see again
Sick of takin' time out to get rid of it, rid of it
Takes way too quick to refill, once more must get rid of it
On and on and on I rub, still the clouds cloud again
Wish I could opt out, but I can't stop my job, got costs, you see

Gotta deal now
With vision bein' none
Kinda need it
To flip these burger buns

Asked if I could be
On cash today, but Steve
As a boss, isn't nice
He just told me "stiff shit" as if vision's unimportant, right
Gettin' on my case when I get rid of it, rid of it
"Can't be that big of a deal, gotta learn to live with it"
On and on and on he harps, callin' out once again
To just look around the lenses, one more sort of fog, you see

Forced to deal now
With vision bein' none
Though I need it
My manager's a butt
Gotta deal now
With vision bein' none
'Cause I can't quit
Whole situation sucks

Patties are burnin' now (ah, ah, ah-ah)
Can't see the flames right now (ah, ah, ah-ah)
Pit stop to just rub it off
With my shoulder, more hands-off
When the boss gets pissy, let it slide
Higher-ups know my side, can his hide in due time

So I'll deal now
With vision bein' none
Steve's been busted
Can't wait 'til that day comes
Wait and deal now
With vision bein' none
He'll soon be kicked

I was gonna do a reveal where the singer couldn't take off the glasses because zomg they're actually contacts, but I decided to do a little research and it turns out contacts can't actually fog up. The more you know, I guess.
